Robert Downey Jr. spends time with ill fans

Even without his suit of armor Downey exemplifies what it means to be a hero.

With the upcoming release of the much anticipated Captain America: Civil War on May 6, 2016, Entertainment Weekly recently reported that one of the film’s mega-stars, Robert Downey Jr., who portrays comic book legend, Iron Man, made it a point to visit the Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital in order to help bring smiles to the faces of some of his seriously ill fans.

Of particular note was one young 7-year-old armor clad fan by the name of Ethan Miller from Southend, Essex. While the very excited Iron Man fan happens to suffer from type 1 diabetes along with the rare disease known as ITP, Downey’s visit helped make the young hero smile from ear to ear while lifting his spirits in ways that modern medicine could never imagine.

With a heart like that its no wonder fans love Robert Downey Jr almost as much as young Master Miller’s exuberance will bring a smile to our collective faces. Well done Iron Man and keep up the good work one young heart at a time.

Captain America: Civil War is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo and stars Chris Evans along with Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd and Sebastian Stan along with the rest of the film’s stellar cast.
