STRONGSVILLE, OH - It's hard for little girls to resist the chance to be a princess, or have a special breakfast at the mall, but for some little ones who may have compromised immune systems, doing so may be a big risk.

Not so for one group of pint-sized princesses! They were treated to a Princess & Pancakes Ball Sunday morning. SouthPark Mall worked with Cleveland's A Special Wish Foundation to open the mall early so that dozens of princesses could have the chance to get their make up done, craft their magic wands and get to meet some grown-up princesses.
