Paige Sullivan, 9, makes capes at her home in Chapel Hill on Saturday, December 17, 2016. The capes will be delivered to child patients at Duke University Hospital on Tuesday. Sullivan was born with a congenital heart defect and had it repaired at Duke over the summer. Her family and doctors kept calling her a little superhero and got her a cape. She decided other sick kids needed to embrace their inner superhero and has since made hundreds of capes this year to give to sick kids.
