About the solution

When Anne Currie was 5-years-old, she underwent her first congenital heart surgery at Texas Children’s Hospital. Following additional procedures, Anne, now in her 30s, leads a happy and healthy life.

As a young patient, she dreaded putting on a drab hospital gown as the excess fabric made it hard to move around and was always cold due to the thin fabric. And so, together with a fellow adult congenital heart disease patient, Holly Hancock, she created Little Heroes®, a comfortable, creative, hospital-friendly and patented apparel tailored to young heart patients, to help them feel more independent and comfortable.

"I designed Little Heroes® children’s hospital apparel so that children could feel more like themselves, so if you’d like to join me in making hospital stays more comfortable and empowering, please gift a Little Heroes® to a child and put a smile on their face at a time they need it most", the inventor explained.

These pyjamas offer plastic snaps at seams to allow multiple outputs and accessibility for monitor lines, IVs, casts, and all the other things. They can be bought online.

Anne founded her own company around this product.
