Hi Debby, I was put into contact with you via Whitney (below). I heard you were our resident cape expert! I am the director of the Tic and Tourette Service here at Akron Children's Hospital, and my colleague and I (cc'ed) Dr. Lindsey Vater will be presenting on "finding the superhero within" at the biennial Tourette Conference this year in Minneapolis (5/14-5/17). As part of our youth presentation, we are planning on doing a craft in which patients would glue a special "letter" to a cape regarding their super associated with their brain structure. I reached out to Whitney about the possibility of having a volunteer team make us some capes, but it seems like you are a very established cape craftsman here at ACH! Would you be willing or able to donate your skill and your time to this endeavor? I will see if I can get some clarity from the association regarding the number of attendees. Really looking forward to hearing from you! This would be an amazing capstone part of this presentation! ... See MoreSee Less
