'Bright and cheerful': Colorful hospital gowns helping young patients

A recent fashion design graduate is helping families get unique hospital gowns for kids.


Kids facing health scares are getting some comfort with these colorful designs.

They're a spinoff of the typical hospital gown that showcases a bright and cheery approach, says mother Christina Delaney, whose 8-year-old son, Ethan, received one.

Massachusetts College of Art and Design grad Ariana Chariton is donating them, thanks to a $5,000 grant from the charity This Star Won't Go Out, which supports families facing childhood cancer.
