Jacob Goeders, aka The Leukemia Slayer

“Hello, my name is Jacob Goeders, but most people know me as The Leukemia Slayer! On December 2, 2010 when I was 9 years old I was diagnosed with Leukemia. I will be in treatment until March 14, 2014. I think every kid with cancer needs a SUPERHERO name, so I came up with The Leukemia Slayer, and it stuck! One day my little brother and I got a SUPERHERO CAPE from Capes4Heroes. I thought it was perfect for a kid like me because it reminds me that I am strong and will kick cancers butt!! I was happy my brother got one too because sometimes he misses out on stuff because of my cancer. I think the SUPERHERO CAPES are awesome because it helps kids like me feel strong and they show the world we are real super heroes fighting cancer! Thank you Capes4Heroes, YOU ROCK!


“Once he got your beautiful cape (two-sided Superman and Batman), he rarely took it off. I have picture of him in restaurants, in the yard eating watermelon, at the playground, watching television, running errands in the car with his mom... all wearing his Batman cape. It is so precious to see make-believe holding its own in a Game-boy/Xbox society.”

Kyle’s family

“We always knew Kyle was a super kid, but now the world can see his true superhero identity! Thank you so much to the cape’s sponsor, Valerie Schilling, and creator, Capes4Heroes, for giving Kyle the perfect outfit to keep up his superhuman strength. Join Kyle’s superhero team by spreading the word and helping him find a bone marrow donor.”

“It’s just remarkable what you’re doing for the children here, Barbara. Inspiration is such a beautiful thing, and I have found it a similar way which you have found it - stemming from challenging situations... God just knows how to turn our trying circumstances into beautiful avenues upon which we can make positive changes in our lives, and in our worlds. I was inspired, so I posted Capes4Heroes on my website to help spread the word. I wish you an overflowing wealth of success in all your endeavors and will be keeping you, your family, and especially your little ones (the ones you’ve made and all the ones you’ve loved ♥) in prayer... Much love to you, Barbara!”Trinh Mai Thach

“We were blessed to meet Barbara during our stay at RMH at Stanford. She has brought joy, laughs and fun with her capes to my children, along with many other children staying at the house. These beautiful capes make sick children believe they are truly super heroes and that they can conquer anything, including their illnesses. Thank you Barbara and Capes4Heroes for the love, support and joy you bring these kid!”

“THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to both Capes4Heroes and our AMAZING sponsor(s) for the incredible gift of Casper’s Cape. It’s just so perfect for him, I died when I flipped it over and saw the Star Trek Fabric, Casper lit up with joy he is just the littlest Trekkie there is. 

Honestly I was having a rough day as Casper is just not feeling 100% and because of some other difficulties but when I opened the package you turned my day around it just brought so much joy to him that I couldn’t help but focus on the positive again. I framed his certificate and mounted it on his wall, as he will forever be our superhero. 

I wanted to share a couple pictures and just say a GREAT BIG thank you for bringing such happiness to our little fighter. ♥”

"Please consider donating a SUPERHERO cape to a child with a Life Threatening Medical Condition! I personally know the Mom that started this organization and she works solely on the generosity and donations from others to help her give every one of these children a chance to realize the mission of Capes4Heroes which is to encourage and recognize the REAL SUPERHEROS in this world~ these children~ and then provide each one of them with their own “SUPERHERO CAPE”! She has Cape Crusaders from all over the country that hand sew each cape with LOVE ♥, then her Ambassadors throw HUGE superhero parties for these children at the Ronald McDonald Houses around the country to personally “cape” each child by their favorite superhero! She also spends countless hours away from her own little boys and family to personally present capes to some of the sickest superheros :) The cost to sponsor a cape and the mission of Capes4Heroes is SO small in comparison with the unimaginable Hope, Strength, and Courage you see as each cape transforms these children from extraordinary to SUPER-EXTRAORDINARY! It is almost as if these capes give these children something that was already present within them, something that only the “CAPE” has the power achieve! Please SPONSOR a Superhero TODAY!”


“Capes4Heroes, I live in the Moore, Oklahoma area and my children attend Briarwood Elementary. I just wanted to say thank you so much for the time, effort, and capes you have recently given to not only my children, but the children of Plaza Towers also. Words cannot express how much joy they brought to my children. Seeing them run around the house and have ear to ear smiles made my heart become full of joy and hope. I truly appreciate your generosity and will never forget the precious gift you have given them, happiness and a chance to start healing. I sincerely appreciate it.”
