“It’s not easy being a teen and it’s even tougher to be a teen suffering with a serious illness.”
For anyone who has ever been admitted to the hospital, you know how awful those hospital gowns can be. They’re normally old and worn and no one feels good when wearing it. Most of us have only had to wear one for a few days at a time, for me it was when I had my kids in the hospital, so we don’t think much about it.
But what if you had a chronic illness that found you in the hospital for an extended period of time? What if you were a teenager, smack dab in the middle of ‘finding who you are’ and you had to wear a drab hospital gown all the time?
Now a group of people are working towards creating a new kind of hospital gown for kids and teens to help them “feel more like themselves while undergoing treatment.”
One group of people are trying to make teenagers stay in hospital a bit more bearable by creating amazing new gowns.
