It's no fun being ill over the holidays It's about 100 times worse when you're a kid. KATC reports, Acadiana Mall donated 200 "Brave Gowns" for patients at Women's & Children's Hospital in Lafayette. I've you've ever been admitted, you know hospital gowns are hardly the height of fashion, and not very cheery. The gowns give kids a choice of what to wear, and a chance to be individuals.

“I don’t think the public realizes what these kids go through and how strong they have to be. So, any little thing that is done for them, it definitely helps.”   -  Meika Guidry

If you'd like to help, you can donate a gown. Contact the Community Foundation of Acadiana at 337-769-4840. They're $30.00 apiece.
