Brave Gowns with Summer Germann

My guest this week is Summer Germann, founder of Brave Gowns based in California.

More than 3 million children are hospitalized in the United States. Every 33 minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer and that's just one reason that children are admitted to the hospital.

Twelve years ago on Halloween, Summer Germann's family became one of those statistics. Little did they know that they were about to be face the fight of their lives when Summer's younger brother was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Her only sibling,15 years her junior, Summer was with him constantly. Halloween was his favorite event and Summer wanted him to enjoy that time regardless of being in the hospital. One year later, her brother was back in the hospital in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, and an idea was born - to create children's hospital gowns that made them into the super heroes of their dreams. And Brave Gowns were born. Join me in this conversation, how one family's tragedy is bringing hope and joy to critically ill children.

I founded a non-profit, Happy Ditto, Inc, with the intention of making sure I do my best to help alleviate children of an worry that they might be carrying and to make sure that they know they have somewhere to turn in the time of need. I've learned a lot along the way, mostly because I ran before I walked. But I believe every piece of my life has led me to this very moment. I have definitely made my fair share of mistakes, but I have yet to give up. My single favorite piece of advice in life was "If you know better, you have to do better!" That set me on a path of making sure that I follow my passion at all costs. Life is about making a difference and leaving your mark. There's nothing like the innocence of a child. Every part of my soul believes that I was put here to help children in situations that are beyond their control and be their voice.
