Children teach us to always be curious, to be happy always, and to fight tirelessly for something...especially when that something happens to be an evil villain like cancer, more specifically DIPG. As Spiderman knelt before Ruben to talk to him, so many thoughts and feelings came over the entire room; feelings of pure love, hope, and the willingness and relentlessness of family standing together to fight against something so big...then Spiderman leaned into the young hero and told him to "just keep being a kid". It was extremely hard to fight back the tears, as little Ruben looked up at his good pal Spidey and just smiled with eyes wide, full of hope, positivity, and promise of brighter days ahead. In the short amount of time we were there for our visit, Ruben and his brother and sister reminded us that although life can be unfair, it is only when we use the power of prayer, a strong support system, and positive thinking that we can overcome life's toughest tests especially when it comes to ones health; we have witnessed the miracles these have brought to the table when it comes to healing; trust us when we say it's stronger than medicine alone. We left our visit inspired and with the conviction that Spiderman and his crew have many more heroes to visit, miracles to witness, to have fun and "let go" as children do, and the opportunity to inspire, empower, and motivate more children to come.
