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.”

“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!”
