There’s nothing more devastating for a parent than having a sick child. The feeling of helpless is depressing and heavy. That’s why we want to share Eric and Collier’s heartwarming story.

Eric Hart wants to do everything he can to help his four-month-old son, Collier while he’s kept in the neonatal intensive care unit. He wanted baby Collier to “feel brave” and give him one day of strength, hoping that he will be able to come home soon.

Eric took a regular Iron Man costume pattern and scaled it down to infant size for baby Collier. The result? the ‘brave’ Collier was able to spend the day looking like a fighter and a true Superhero.
