MAKE YOUR MONDAY: Woman Donates Capes to Hospitals to Keep Patients Warm
As a parent of a child who spent years in and out of hospitals before her son lost his 12-year battle to a rare form of an immune deficiency, Meg Smith learned quickly how difficult it can be for patients to stay warm while hooked up to IV and PICC lines.
When her son, Gavin, was fighting his battle at Inova Children's Hospital, she created fun, fuzzy fleece poncho capes for him to slip over his head.
Smith, with her business partner, Cindy, is now on a mission to give away as many capes as possible through her business, CapeIvy.com.
Recently, she and her business partner donated dozens of colorful capes to Inova Children's Hospital.
