I am very proud to have Jhosua as my very first Hero. He is a very happy and funny 8 year old from NJ battling two forms of cancer. He loves superheroes especially the Teen Titans and LOVES to play video games. Jhosua was in the Hospital for over 4 months due to complications regarding his conditions. While he was in the hospital, I visited him frequently in and out of cosplay to help brighten up his day. At one of my visits while I was cosplaying Wonder Woman Jhosua asked me if he could meet Batman and Robin. I was more than pleased to grant his wish. We even celebrated his birthday together in his hospital room being that he was still on partial Isolation. He was not able to go to his party so I made sure to bring the party to him :) Jhosua was Discharged from the hospital on 6/1/15 and will be attending conventions with me from now on. Please say hi if you see us walking around :)
SPICE UP YOUR CLOSET
Shawn is a very happy 12 year old boy who has Down Syndrome . Shawn was picked up as a second Hero by Ms. Velez while attending the Atlantic City Boardwalk Con in May of 2015. Shawn's dad asked Ms. Velez for a picture and soon after that Shawn kept close to Ms. Velez's side. Ms. Velez could not help herself and had to invite Shawn to be her second Hero this year. Shawn's dad is a single dad and is doing a great job in raising him to be an honorable young boy. Shawn loves Comic Conventions, comic books and is also a fan of Cosplaying.
