Capes4Kids donate 100 superhero capes to child patients at Mount Druitt Hospital

BATMAN, Superman and Spiderman can normally only be found lighting up the silver screen.

But the caped crusaders have been calling Mount Druitt Hospital home this week.

Australian charity Capes4Kids have donated 100 superhero capes to help sick kids at the hospital’s children’s ward live out their comic book dreams.

Patrick Vlatko, 3, from Blacktown had no hesitation in donning his cape and soaring through the hospital corridors.

Children’s ward nurse, Mildred Villason said the capes gave patients who were facing daunting medical procedures a much-needed boost.

“We are so grateful for these capes; it will make such a difference to the children,” she said.

“Each cape has a special message, wishing the child a speedy recovery or reminding them to be brave and stay positive during a difficult time.

“The capes help take their minds off their illnesses by magically turning them into superheroes.”
