Funeral for a superhero boy who lost his fight with cancer
Spider-Man, Thor, Iron Man and several other superheroes stood as pallbearers to honor five-year-old Brayden Denton’s fighting spirit. The little guy from Newton County, Indiana, died on May 8th.
His mom says Braydon always had a superhero with him as he braved treatments for his brain cancer. To commemorate her son’s bravery, she planned a funeral fit for her little superhero.
Among the pallbearers were Staci Denton’s brother dressed as Thor, and Brad Denton, Staci’s cousin, dressed as Ironman.
His mom said Brayden had been a huge superhero fan — his favorite being Spiderman — since he was three. Since then, he has seen Spiderman on Broadway and even got to meet the superhero in Chicago.
