NANA NANA NANA NANA NANA BATMAAAAN! For those of you that don't know me, HEY! My name is Tim Brigham and I am the founder of the Superhero Collective, 501c3 not for profit. In a nutshell, I decided my mission in life was to put on a batman costume and visit sick children in hospital while they are receiving treatment. Have you ever been to the hospital? Its terrible. You hate every second. Now imagine you are 5 and in isolation. Imagine you are a little girl have terminal cancer and your hair is falling out. Now imagine you are that child's parent. You see as goofy as what I do is, its not. Its the hardest thing I have ever done but I will never stop. I try my damnedest to remind children that they are still a kid. To smile. To laugh. Then I leave them with a cool toy they actually enjoy, try to help pass the time of sitting in a boring hospital day after day. I am running in this because I feel like I dont have a choice. These kids need someone to stand up and do the hard work. If that means being an idiot for a few minutes to make them smile, I am for that fight. I appreciate you stopping by and reading all this and if you choose to support our mission, thank you so much. God bless you.
