Dr Oz: Superheroes Washing Windows At Children’s Hospital
Dr. Oz shared that superheroes across the country are washing windows at children’s hospitals with a mission to bring happiness to various pediatric patients. Dr. Oz met many patients with various conditions who he knew needed laughter and smiles. When he heard that one local hospital used superheroes to clean their windows and put smiles on the kids faces, he knew he wanted to suit up. Dressed as Superman, Dr. Oz joined Batman (Alex) and Spider-Man (Julian) as they hung off the side of the building to clean the windows, all while brightening the children’s day.
While Superman didn’t exactly rappel off the side of the building he still helped clean the windows and talk to the kids. Dr. Oz talked to a little boy named Jude who became paralyzed due to a condition that occurred after an ear infection. Jude was 4 years old and said he was there because he couldn’t walk. He told Dr. Oz his favorite superhero was Spider-Man and it’s a good thing Spider-Man was there! Jude said he was going to have a super-power when he got older. Jude and Superman then arm wrestled and little Jude proudly won!

Dr. Oz then talked to 9-year-old Luciana who had a brain tumor removed and is being treated for hydrocephalus. Dr. Oz told Luciana that she was his hero. Dr. Oz also talked to 5-year-old Le’onte, who has been a patient on and off since birth after undergoing a bowel transplant and various other surgeries since he was an infant. Le’onte is a huge Spider-Man fan and was even wearing a Spider-Man shirt. He and Dr. Oz arm wrestled and once again Superman lost!
Funny enough, Le’onte told Dr. Oz that he missed a spot when he was cleaning the windows. He said he officially wanted to start the “laughter is the best medicine movement” and asked his viewers to tweet him their favorite jokes, pictures, or how they made someone laugh using the hashtag #OzLaughterRx. “You don’t need superhero powers to make someone happy,” Dr. Oz said.
