“She’s the most warm, bubbly person with such a motherly instinct”.
Nominated by 11-year-old Josh, Angie Brooks is the latest winner of Juiced TV’s Super Hero Awards, proudly supported by QSuper.
Josh was diagnosed with spina bifida in the womb which provided challenges for the family from the very beginning. Life in and out of hospital was tough especially with the number of procedures, but at just the right time, one special person entered Josh’s life to provide the ongoing support the family needed.
Cue Angie, a humble hero and true advocate for many patients and families. She has been able to make life a little easier for this family and formed a great bond with Josh’s mum Abbi too.
“Angie makes the hospital feel like home, she embraces you like a teddy bear and she brightens up the corridors and makes us feel really welcome” explains Abbi.
As a result of Angie’s sacrificial work and time with the family, Josh nominated Angie for the Juiced TV Super Hero Awards to recognise and celebrate her amazing work.
Angie, humbled by the nomination shared that she had been inspired by Josh’s strength and resilience over the years explaining that despite the challenges, he has not been held back from competing in several different sports, becoming an active advocate for disability and anti-bullying and so much more.
QSuper’s partnership and support allows Juiced TV to increase the positive impact the program has for kids and their families at the hospital, and also throughout regional hospitals across Queensland with the ‘Juiced Box’ mobile application.
If you have a Super Hero at the hospital, help us to give them the recognition they deserve by nominating them for Juiced TV’s Super Hero Awards.
