Our Story

As a parent of a child who spent years in and out of hospitals before he lost his 12 year battle to a rare form of CVID (Common Variable Immune Deficiency), I know how difficult it can be for patients to stay warm while hooked up to IV and PICC lines. Robes, sweaters and jackets don’t work with the lines. I came up with a solution when my son, Gavin was 6. I created fun fleece poncho capes for him to slip over his head. He was cozy in bed and no more cold walks down hospital corridors. LEARN MORE

In Gavin’s honor, I have started Cape Ivy to provide as many capes as possible to children who courageously fight for their health in and out of hospitals. – MEG

Our Mission

With the help of my business partner and friend Cindy, we plan to give away as many capes as possible to “frequent flier” children in hospitals. Watch Our Donations page for our progress.

If you know a child or adult in need, please consider purchasing a cape as a gift. For each cape purchased, we will donate one to a child in the hospital. If you don’t have a need for a cape, you can provide capes with a gift to Cape Ivy.
