Sick kids’ Supertee costumes help Gold Coast boy


Sick children are given new armor to help them fight serious illnesses.

Jason Sotiris is the inventor of a unique superhero costume that kids can wear in the hospital.

Costumes are like an extra-functional hospital gown, making it easier for children to change while undergoing medical procedures.

The idea came after her daughter Angela was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer called Langerhans Cell Hystiocytosis, right after her first birthday.

“It was really hard to keep her clean and hygienic and just after a few rough nights while she was on chemotherapy. An idea came to my mind and I thought I will give it a try,” said Mr. Sotiris.

Mr. Sotiris collaborated with a close friend and the Fair Fight Foundation to create Supervisor, to help make the lives of other sick children and their parents a little easier.

“My dream is to have a parent all over the world know that their child has a terminal illness, that a Supertee is available,” he said.

One of the beneficiary children is Matheo Eggleston, a four-year-old boy from Gold Coast, who lives with a rare genetic condition.

Her mother Shalyn Eggleston says the outfit was a lifesaver.

“He can go through all of his MRIs and all of his scans because there is no metal in them and it has made life so much easier,” Ms Eggleston said.

Supervisor has so far made 5,000 clothes for sick children, but they hope to send 8,000 more to medical centers by the end of the year.
