The Chicago Tribune brings us this story:A crew of window washers dressed as superheroes descend via rope lines from the roof of the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital in what has become a beloved semi-annual tradition Tuesday, April 15, 2014.
The nurses on the 20th floor were the first to see them. “Oh my goodness,” declared Colleen Forrester, 29, a nurse dressed in green scrubs, who pointed to the windows. Other nurses came to look and laughed at the sight. Were the children strong enough to come see?Soon, parents and nurses were leading kids out of their rooms. The children were small and frail-looking. All were undergoing treatment for cancer or other serious disorders.But on this cold Tuesday morning, they had a precious moment of distraction.
