When children are sick, have to spend time in the hospital or suffer disabilities, our hope is that a Kids Cape of Courage will make a scary situation a little less so. For the last couple of years, The Sew What Club in Sun City has been making fabric capes for kids that they donate to Hilton Head Regional Healthcare. From babies in the NICU to teenagers battling cancer, we want each child to know how brave and strong they are.
Recently, we have expanded the program. Because of the generosity and efforts of the ladies in The Sew What Club, we are now distributing the capes to both the Women’s Center at Hilton Head Hospital and to the Women’s Pavilion of Coastal Carolina Hospital. Katy Mowery, the Director of the Women’s Pavilion at Coastal Carolina Hospital, and her staff have coined the phrase “Super Star Siblings”. The capes will now be given to new big brothers and big sisters after the birth of a baby in one of our units. We felt that the capes would be a nice way to recognize their new status when a family welcomes a new addition. The Sew What Club also knits baby caps for new arrivals in our Women’s Center at Hilton Head Hospital and The Women’s Pavilion at Coastal Carolina Hospital.
