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 additional open-heart surgeries 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.
