LOS ANGELES (KABC) — A very thoughtful superhero visited a young cancer patient at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Jabari Henley, who is being treated for leukemia, celebrated his fourth birthday with a surprise Spider-Man party in the hospital’s playroom.

Spider-Man, Jabari’s favorite costumed character, appeared at the party.

The birthday boy was a little shy at first, but then he warmed up.

He and Spider-Man played alongside the action heroes Spider-Man had given as a present.

Even through Jabari’s mask, the smile on his face was clearly visible.

“It brought automatic tears to my face,” said Cedulla BochMartinez. “We don’t have anyone, so it felt really good and warming to have others who care and think about my child so much.”

This event is organized by the Lifedriven Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports children with cancer and their families.
