I'd like to mention that B is a cancer patient himself, searching for a way to pass out candy with his insistent 80 year old mother, in an effort to avoid contact with so many people and prevent contracting the flu.

The image did seem to confuse many. Especially the adults. Perhaps it was too real for some, but we found the levity in it all.

I wonder if the little boy actually thought he was Superman for the evening?

Peace B
Yup B's Me!

I'm glad you and your mom had some fun last night.Thank you for sharing this story with us. For a young boy, "Superman" shows great insight.

With hope, Wendy

Hello take: The more folks get comfortable with the medical "tools fo the trade" the more likely they'll seek treatment, and seek it sooner, and follow it through. If we can knock out fear, by making the "look" a commom place view, then that is worth a hundred PSAs on any TV network.

Dear Pam,
Great point. With hope, Wendy

I also wanted to add...we had many laughs while deciding to do this. We even thought we could put mom's(sanitized) potty chair on the porch and fill it with candy, but that was going a bit overboard. I just couldn't stop laughing over that thought. Even when facing illness there's always room for laughter!

Peace B

The image of the two of you coming up with these ideas is a riot! A perfect example of Happiness in a Storm.
With hope, Wendy
