LITTLE HEROES® apparel was created as a result of my experience with a congenital heart defect that required many hospitalizations. As a child with medical needs, I dreaded the “one-size-fits-all” drab hospital gown that had unreachable ties in the back and offered very little warmth, especially to a child with a low oxygen level.
LITTLE HEROES® by Heroic Hearts® offers comfortable, creative, hospital-friendly apparel tailored for young patients ages 2-6. I believe children dealing with a medical issue deserve a comfortable and fun alternative to the generic hospital gown and/or regular clothes. Hospital stays bring their own set of stresses, both to a child and to their family. My goal is to eliminate some of the stress and provide an outlet for imagination, comfort and a sense of independence. LITTLE HEROES® by Heroic Hearts is helping to brighten days for courageous kids!
Have you ever seen something created from the heart? I’m about to show you clothing that is made with children as the main focus: Little Heroes® is patented and functional, offering plastic snaps at seams to allow multiple outputs, and accessibility for monitor lines, IVs, casts, and all the other things that can make a hospital stay uncomfortable. More than anything, children should have the luxury of comfortable and fun attire that also provides a sense of independence.
I’m passionate about making children’s hospital stays more comfortable and empowering because I know what it feels like to lie in hospital beds as a child. I was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect and at hours old had life saving surgery. I had another open-heart surgery when I was 9 and 10 and spent many months in the hospital recovering.
Each time I went to the hospital–whether I was there for a long-term stay or an appointment–I dreaded putting on the uncomfortable drab hospital gown that made me feel even more like “the sick kid”.
I designed Little Heroes® children’s hospital apparel so that children could feel more like themselves, so if you’d like to join me in putting a smile on a child’s face when they need it most, please donate Little Heroes® to a hospital of your choice.
