Cancer-Fighting Super Kids Fitted for Capes at Rady Children's Hospital

Every hero needs their cape and on Monday 100 cancer-fighting superheroes received theirs.

One hundred gold capes were passed out to patients at Rady Children’s Hospital to form a “human ribbon” in honor of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

The Emilio Nares Foundation (ENF) along with Match Your Need provided the capes to the patients. ENF provides programs and services to families who have children with cancer in San Diego.

The special event took place in Carley’s Magical Garden. With the help of nurses and staff who wore yellow, the official color of the awareness month, formed the “human ribbon” in recognition of the more than 15,000 kids diagnosed with cancer each year.

“We are just giving these superheroes the capes that they so rightly have earned as they battle this terrible disease,” Said Karen Terra with the ENF.
