“IV Hero” – artistic creations help young children receiving IV treatments in hospitals

Tonite on News 4 New York, there was a story about a college student in Long Island who came up with this invention.  It is a cover for IV bags in hospitals.  Children who have to receive IV treatments in hospitals for cancer and other illnesses, are often scared of the fluids that enter their body through a tube and needle.  This creative invention covers the IV bag and helps children imagine that they are receiving super powers to fight their illness.

Brilliant!

Bobby Lenahan, a junior at Molloy College is a hero! This simple invention has had a tremendous impact.
