Adirondack Health has treated patients from many walks of life, and can now add superhero to that list.
Aayden Tristam, photo right, wore a special “Brave Kid” cape for a recent surgical procedure at Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake. Not wanting to be left out of the fun, his dad Dillon wore a matching “Brave Kid” cape as well. Thanks to the special cape, Aayden was able to return to his Superhero duties later that same day.
The team in the Surgical Unit at AMC provides pediatric patients with a lunch box that contains a cape, “Brave Kid” membership card, stickers, crayons and coloring pictures to make the experience a little less daunting for the young patients. The “Brave Kid” kits are supported by the Adirondack Health Foundation. To learn more or support this program, contact the Foundation Office at (518) 897-2370.
