The real heroes who save lives aren’t the ones in capes, but the ones in white coats – doctors. A heartwarming video posted by u/GNering on the r/MadeMeSmile subreddit shows doctors greeting their young patients in a unique and special way.
The video begins with doctors accompanying the young patients and leading them into the surgical block with gentle and reassuring gestures. The kids in the video are adorned with superhero capes, and they appear overjoyed as they enter the block, seemingly forgetting any worries or fears they may have had.
Furthermore, the surgical block’s entrance is adorned with decorations to welcome the children, and some hospital staff can be seen smiling in the background of the video. As the 46-second clip comes to an end, a doctor embraces a young patient with tenderness and affection. The video showcases how doctors strive to create a comfortable, caring, and joyous environment for their young patients. The heartwarming video received 19K upvotes and numerous comments on Reddit.
The video received a lot of love and support from people in the comments section.
u/derraeuber commented, “Real Heroes don’t need capes. Scrubs work way better.”

In another touching story, according to The Washington Post, Felicity Fishman, a pediatric orthopedic surgeon, has touched the hearts of many children by creating a secure and cozy environment for them. She achieves this by decorating her patients’ casts with uplifting drawings, providing them with a positive and memorable experience at the hospital. One of the lives she has positively impacted is that of Wesley Puttrich, a 2-year-old boy born with an extra thumb on his right hand.
Katie Puttrich, Wesley’s mother, shared that her son cherished the dinosaur drawing on his cast so much that they kept it after the cast was removed. It now hangs in his room as a treasured keepsake. Fishman expressed her appreciation for this kind feedback, saying that it brings her great joy to know that her artwork can create positive memories for her young patients.
