It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s… our superhero patients!

Superhero Day 5

Patients at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford celebrated Superhero Day on Wednesday, August 8. The hospital’s caped crusaders created a special day for the superhero patients receiving treatment at the hospital. Among the highlights was a superhero cape making station where patients received custom garb in a color of their choice, emblazoned with their initials, from the organization Capes4Heroes.

“Events like Superhero Day are a way to help normalize the hospital environment,” said child life specialist Alyssa Pettingill. “As child life specialists we constantly want to bring a sense of normalcy to patients’ lives amidst the treatments and procedures they are undergoing here, and what better way to do that than to bring in some fun.”

Thanks to event sponsor First Tech Federal Credit Union, and to volunteers from PlayStation for joining the fight for children’s health.

    I think this is an amazing idea. I want to thank the kind window washers for doing such a noble thing for the kids.
