Superhero cape for cancer kidBarbara Casados only uses her sewing machine for one thing — one very special thing. She makes sick children feel better by giving them personalized Superhero capes.

It started when she tried to solve the daily fights with her son over wearing clothes to school. She bribed him with the promise of a crusader’s cape. Next, she sewed them as a profit-making enterprise.

But when someone came to her about making them for kids in a cancer ward — 65 kids — she couldn’t say no to a single one of them.

Now sick kids everywhere realize they are the REAL superheroes.

You can help by sponsoring a child to receive a cape, or donate $10 toward the purchase of fabrics at
