My Story

Being diagnosed with a medical condition and a schedule of invasive treatment is scary for anyone, let alone a child.
Any child who faces the challenges of illness, medical treatments and long hospital stays is a superhero… so they should look the part when they go into battle!
Introducing Supertee™!
A Supertee™ is a specially designed top that is easily accessed from the top or sides for use in a medical environment and is styled to look like a superhero dress up – cape and all! It has underarm openings for taking a patient’s temperature, side and shoulder openings for access to tubes and feeding lines. Traditionally a patient would have to take off their top or wear a hospital robe, which is very uncomfortable. By giving a child the opportunity to feel like a superhero, it gives them the power to feel strong, powerful and brave during their daunting treatment.
The Supertee™ was introduced to the WCH Foundation by the Rotary Club of Mobilong and Cameron Aloisi, a young boy who had cancer treatment at Adelaide’s Women’s and Children’s Hospital and in Sydney. The WCH Foundation is committed to delivery Supertees™ into the Adelaide Women’s and Children’s Hospital, thanks to the continual fundraising efforts of the Rotary Club of Mobilong. On Monday 2 September, the first 50 Supertees™ were delivered to the Women's & Children's Hospital Foundation by the Rotary Club of Mobilong with an ongoing pledge of 300 Supertees™ per year.
