    Heroes Don't Always Wear Capes

    If you've ever spent more than a minute inside the walls of a children's hospital, you know that there is a common understanding that medically fragile children are superheroes. They battle disease and circumstances most adults couldn't fathom facing themselves. What's more, these kids do it with a certain joie de vivre that not only contradicts the heaviness of their reality but also inadvertently inspires and gives hope to every other human they come in contact with.

     

    But these tiny patients aren't the only heroes in this scenario. Doctors, nurses, parents, siblings, grandparents, teachers, friends... Every member of the child's care team is a hero in their own right, many suffering from illness themselves. Extreme stress and trauma ultimately affect their psychological and physical being yet they don't ask for help. The child is their only priority,.

     

    These heroes walk among us and they don't wear armour or announce that they are engaged in a fight for life itself. They are silent heroes , suffering from "invisible illness" and they aren't meant to do it alone. Yet, they often do.

     

    That's where CapeFree Connection comes in. The power of community is healing beyond measure. A community of superheroes? Even better. What is your superpower?

    why we do what we do
