A Children’s Cancer Hospital Is Making Super-Hero-Themed Chemotherapy Bags
Going through chemotherapy is awful, but it’s even worse if you’re a kid. So the A.C. Camargo Cancer Center in Sao Paulo, Brazil is teaming up with Warner Brothers to help make chemo less scary for kids battling cancer. They’re producing a special line of IV bags with the logos of Superman, Batman, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman on them.
The chemo drugs have been renamed ‘Superformula,’ and they even have a special line of comic books where the superheroes use Superformula to overcome the same physical problems the kids face when they go through chemo.
Anything that can make things easier for kids going through such a terrible ordeal is a great idea! I had the opportunity to tour St Jude Children’s Research center and they have red wagons the kids ride in with the IV’s attached. Maybe they can steal a page from this center in Brazil and add the Superhero IV bags to the wagons.
