View Full Version : Local Boy With Cancer Turns into Superhero for a Day

05-05-10, 09:23

Erik, who is living with liver cancer, has always wanted to be a superhero. On Thursday, the regional chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation granted him that wish with an elaborate event that involved hundreds of volunteers in Bellevue and Seattle.

The local chapter, which serves four states, grants more than 300 wishes every year to children with life-threatening medical conditions, but only a few of them involve so many participants.

Pulling off a wish like this one required a big story, and a lot of heart. And so, with a note of panic in his voice, Spider-Man explained the dilemma: "Dr. Dark" and "Blackout Boy" had imprisoned the Seattle Sounders in a locker room at Qwest Field. Only Electron Boy could free them.

This is Amazing. I smiled throughout my read and... it jut proves humans do have a heart. Awwww. <3

I have no word for this expect Awwwww! :D I hope he manages to overcome his cancer! :hug:

Like any good superhero, Electron Boy kept his innermost thoughts to himself. But he did have one important thing to say:

"This is the best day of my life."

its nice that he got to be a super hero, and i am happy for him; but maybe these things shouldnt be limited to one day only. (but im guessing money is the issue.)
