Chemo Re-branding – Some “GOOD” Headlines in the News

With all the bad news that floats around I went on a search for some good news to share.  It wasn’t that hard to find good news but it was hard to find something that warmed my heart and made me go “awe, how sweet!”

There is a hospital in Brazil that is re-branding the chemotherapy bags for kids.  They have put the bags in plastic containers that have different super hero emblems on them.  They are coining them as “Superformula” packed full of magical powers.  But the goodness didn’t stop there.  The hospital has equipped the children’s cancer ward with a “Hall of Justice” game room and has adorned the place with super hero decorations.

This has to be the best, most positive atmosphere for children who are battling such a horrible disease.  Why stop there?  Maybe other hospitals around the world will come up with their own twist on this.  And why not put it in all children’s wards?  All kids could benefit from a little “fantasy” while they recover no matter how minor or major the issue.  Heck as an adult I would love to be whisked away to a “pretend” place where everything is good and happy if I had to go through the healing battle.

In my opinion, the positive atmosphere is good for the soul and good for the healing process.
