I look back at the last 3 years and I can't even truly fathom all I've done, all the places I've been and all the amazing kids I've been honored to meet. If you could playback all the memories I have stored inside my brain which I've obtained within this journey, it would be better than any movie. I've seen so much in such a short amount of time, it's overwhelming to think about but there's one thing I want all of you to focus on. My page can be hard to view and too much to read sometimes because far too often kids are flying off to heaven but I need you to understand and see how many smiles, dance offs, thumbs wars, excited moments, and tears of joy came before that. Regardless of the outcome (which I or you cannot control) ive been able to bring kids happiness and parents bliss (from seeing their kids happy). There's no dollar amount that could ever equal those timeless moments that parents can treasure forever. Its why I charge nothing. Its why I keep going. Its why its bigger than me and always will be. Dear world, Stay humble and live with purpose. πŸ™πŸΌ God bless #HeartOfaHero #Spiderman #Light #Love #Courage #TheJourney #Emotions #Smiles #Joy #NoControl #Fate #Destiny #PicOfTheDay #Blessings #StayHumble #BiggerThanUs #God #LifePurpose #GreaterPurpose #Angels #Darkness #HeavyBurden #WorthItAll #WhatMattersMost #priceless #Timeless

Standing up again. Its not a requirement, its a choice. Life can at times mimic a wrecking ball and no matter how strong, big and tall you think you are, it can level you. There will come times where you find yourself beneath the rubble asking how you got there. As you lie on your back with the weight of the world on your chest, its in that moment that you're asked of more strength than you think you have. You thought taking life's hardest hit was the most difficult time you've ever experienced until you're faced with standing up again. Thats when fear, doubt, and worry become heavier than the rubble. This is where you have the opportunity to become the strongest version of yourself. Without resistance there is no proof of a purpose filled life. Thats when it all makes sense. Every hit you've ever taken, every piece of rubble that sits atop you, and fear you've ever had wasn't to destroy you. It was to BUILD you. And all you have to do is stand up again... πŸ™πŸΌ God Bless World #HeartOfaHero #Spiderman #Love #StandUpAgain #LifeHurts #Rebuild #WithGod #God #Blessings #Trial #Tribulation #Triumph #Resistance #Overcome #InspireOthers #Motivate #light #wisdom #perspective #TogetherWeStand #TogetherWeAreStrong #Strength #perseverance #resilience #PicOfTheDay

Sometimes you gotta make tough but necessary calls. Although I wanted so badly to show up for the kids today at sutter in Sacramento, I had to reschedule to next week due to me still fighting a cold. Of course I could push through and get it done but that's not what its about. Its about the kids and their well being is my first priority. Always will be. Although spidey is fully masked and covered, I didn't wanna risk that. Its important to me that parents trust me and its judgment calls like these that will forever ensure that. Sorry to sutter Sacramento but I promise I'll see you next week. God bless πŸ™πŸΌ #KidsFirst #ItsNotAboutMe #Purpose #TrustMe #Resting #TryingToStandAgain #Recovery #StupidCold

Light. It illuminates the darkness and exposes a path of escape from out of the shadows. A way out from the frustration, stress, and every day pains of life when things aren't going as exactly planned. A reason to hope again. To smile again. To feel like life isn't so bad after all. The warmth of light seldom felt is like feeling heaven rest on your skin giving you a moment of freedom to breathe. A sliver of peace that comes packaged with inspiration and newfound strength. The lifeline you needed to keep going. I feel tremendously blessed to be a light worker giving children and families the extra "something" they need to go on. Whether its tears of joy or ones of sorrow, I'm there for it all. πŸ™πŸΌ I'm honored to walk this journey with such amazing children and families.

Everyone has a gift but its my belief that its not a God given gift until you use it to help others. A gift is good for YOU. It makes YOU money, puts food on YOUR table, clothes on YOUR back but if it only benefits you (and even your small circle/family) when there's a world filled with people in need, it can only be deemed YOUR gift. It only becomes a God Given gift when you give it away. Not one family has ever been charged for me showing up. No bill was ever sent for the toys. I ONLY suit up for children in need and NEVER for entertainment based events because I am reserved for those who are trapped behind hospital walls and or their illness. When childhoods are being stripped away by unforseen circumstances, I bring it back along with hope, friendship, and love. Thats my God given gift. To shed light and love in the darkest corners of life. Because I know in my heart that how much money I made, how big my house was, nice my car was, or how famous I become means nothing to God or the world when I'm gone. So in reality, all we really have is our hearts and what we do with them πŸ™πŸΌ God bless world. #HeartOfaHero #Spiderman #GodGivenGift #Love #Light #Hope #InspireOthers #Motivate #Grateful #Thankful #GiveToOthers #Blessings #Prayers #TogetherWeStand #Compassion #Caring #Smiles #TeamWork #YourLife #YourMessage #JohnMuirWalnutCreek #WalnutCreek #Ca

And this morning, I returned to my god given path of walking into hospitals for children in need! This is Petals. She's a beautiful little girl I met while at John Muir Walnut Creek California today. Her breathing tube was just taken out right before Batman and I walked in. As I knelt down to her bedside and gave petals words of encouragement, I felt a heaviness in the air. Thats when I glanced out of the corner of my spidey eye and saw her mother and father crying. I continued going through all the toys we brought for her and when we were done I made sure to walk over to her parents. I hugged her father and told him they're all in our prayers. His tears of joy at the simple gesture of two hero characters coming to cheer his daughter up single handedly reminded me that this is where I belong. For the first time in months, I had zero anxiety. Focused, strong and driven to bring smiles, hope, and joy all who need it most. πŸ™πŸΌ Thank you God and prayers up for petals! #HeartOfaHero #Spiderman #MyReturn #ImBack #JohnMuirWalnutCreek #pediatricunit #Pediatrics #Love #smiles #joy #light #petals #PrayersForPetals #InspireOthers #God #Prayers #Blessings #Ca #WalnutCreek #MyLife #ForTheKids #Spidey

To bend but never break. To fall, dust yourself off and stand up again. To hurt deeply but move forward. To march through hell toward your healing even if it means staggering through to reach the light. To heave the weight of the world atop your shoulders knowing your knees are weak and you're about to crumble. Its being forged in flames where you will discover your true strength. This life is a journey and its important to remind yourself that its not until you're through the difficult times that you'll appreciate them and who they've helped you become. Be fearless my friends. We get one shot. Head high, smile on, focus on point, and go get your dreams for all those sitting in a hospital (or worse) wishing they could. πŸ™πŸΌ God Bless #HeartOfaHero #Spiderman #Prayers #Blessings #Love #OneTime #TeamWork #Heart #Light #InspireOthers #Motivate #Difficult #HardTimes #ForgedByFire #Life #God #happiness #Joy #Smiles #Tribulation #PicOfTheDay #TeamNoah

The hugs. What its all about. Felt good to get out there and interact with kids once again. I wouldn't wish what I went through or what I go through on anyone. There isn't one single spiderman or any person on this planet who dresses up as any character who's stepped foot in front of as many sick children as I have. Not one has been to as many funerlas or held as many kids as I have as they passed away. The fact that I'm still standing and still getting out there is unheard of. This doesn't make me any better, it just gives me a different perspective. 10,000 kids, 3 years, countless victories and too many funerals, worldwide. My experiences make me a better man but the children and how I tell their stories will make a better world. I see God in their eyes. Our hope in their hearts. Our future in their smiles. This week I return to the hospitals and hospice care facilities to give these little ones courage to fight as their hugs heal a heart of a warrior to a spiritual battlefield.

Today's event at @lumpysdiner was simply AMAZING! It was the 9th annual car show and burger eating contest where all of todays proceeds go to the nonprofit organization I built known as HEART OF A HERO @heartofaheroinc (which houses all i do as Spider-Man for children worldwide). To see the community come out in such HUGE numbers was incredible!

Next week (Tuesday the 17th) will be the first time I step foot into a hospital in over a month after taking my much needed break. It will be to visit children at Walnut Creeks John Muir hospital in California. Although im still fighting through PTSD, anxiety, and depression, I need to show myself I can still do this. It will be a big moment and what makes it even cooler is that Batman will be there with me! I know all of you will be there in spirit supporting me also. Most people with PTSD learn to live life at a distance from things that trigger them but for me, that's not an option. Since holding two children as they passed away just weeks apart from each other, I was floored mentally. I've been at war ever since (3 months). I feel like ive been dragged through hell and tested more than I ever imagined I would be in life. But here I am. Still here. Still standing. Still working to be stronger. Still gonna face my fears, triggers, and doubt's. You better believe that its NOT for me either because walking away would be so much easier for me but I'm not choosing that. Why? Its for the kids and ALWAYS has been! There's more to do so I must dig deeper than I ever have. God bless me with the strength πŸ™πŸΌ Amen #HeartOfaHero #Spiderman #Batman #TimeToWork #Faith #Believe #TheJourney #ImScared #ImNervous #AllWillBeOk #ThisTooShallPass #Strength #Love #Light #blessings #Prayers #God #TogetherWeStand #StandingTallThroughItAll #DoItForDarryl #LordIsKing #KeepTrying

I've come to realize that if what you're doing doesn't down right scare you, you aren't pushing your limits enough to change anything on this planet. It takes great sacrifice to move mountains in this world but even greater is asked of you if you choose to change the way people think and operate. Altering the landscape is easy in comparison to what's embedded deep beneath the surface. We must dig. Its going to hurt. There will be pain, moments of doubt, flat out exhaustion, and setbacks but its important to march forward. My brother Darryl (pictured here) told me crying doesn't mean he's weak. It just means he's been strong for too long. He had those very words tattooed to his arm. It has me thinking that maybe we're broken down into rubble to become something greater than before BUT rising after impact is still a choice. A choice ONLY YOU can make. This transformation isn't without its difficulty but its the very nature of your growth. Because after all...the butterfly wasn't born that way πŸ˜‰ missing you brother @_teamdarryl πŸ™πŸΌ #HeartOfaHero #Spiderman #Growth #Change #Transformation #Love #Light #Peace #EverythingWillBeOk #BePatient #ChooseToRise #StandAgainstYourFears #BeatAnxiety #YouCan #ICan #God #Blessings #TriumphTakesGreatLoss #BecomeStronger #TeamDarryl #DoItForDarryl #StandingTallThroughItAll #AllFaithNoFear #MissingYouBro
