IF I HAD A SUPERPOWER
Callum, age 11
I would want the healing factor superpower.

My hair started falling out yesterday, and now I’m bald.

It feels weird when I rub my head. It’s very lonely

when you are locked up in your room and itchy too.

The painkillers make me itchy. If I had the healing factor, I would jump off

a skyscraper without a parachute to see how it felt.

If I hit the ground too hard, I could just heal myself back up.

I would try to do a lot of crazy things like that. If everyone

had the healing factor, there would be less gun deaths because

people could heal their own gun wounds. But you could still die

of old age because when you get old the healing factor stops working.

If I had the healing factor, I would heal others with Cancer here,

and make sure that my Cancer would never come back.

I would want the healing factor superpower.
