Chris Evans has surprised Kenny Botting, who is only nine years old and is bravely battling a brain tumor, by visiting him on Monday, December 29th. Watch a video below!
Kenny’s been staying at Christopher’s Haven, a place that provides a home away from home for kids battling cancer, with his sister and mother as he undergoes treatment next door at Mass General Hospital. “Christopher’s Haven has given me a new apartment and a new home to stay and be here,” Botting said. “This is home, a community and you bring the whole family here,” Christopher’s Haven Founder Dan Olsen said.
Kenny took pictures, played and received an autograph and some gifts from Chris Evans. To top it off Kenny took Chris on a tour of Christopher’s Haven. You can see in the video below a lot of Captain America stuff and posters, so sweet!
Chris is in Boston for a special event at Fenway Park this weekend to help raise money for Christopher’s Haven. “It’s their strength that gives me strength. No matter what hurdles are in my life it’s nothing compared to what these families go through, so any way I can bring a smile it’s worth it,” Chris said.
