(PCM) Tragically, five year old Brayden Denton, lost his battle with a brain tumor and the incredible photos of his favorite superheros acting as the pallbearers for his casket has gone viral across the web.
Brayden passed away on May 8th and his mother could not think of a better way to celebrate his life than to give him a sendoff surrounded by the superheros he had enjoyed so much. His mother says that superheros were his whole world and it is definitely what he would have wanted for his funeral.
Brayden was lifted to his final resting place with the assistance of Batman, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Superman, Thor and his very favorite character of all time Spiderman.
Brayden was diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive form of brain cancer that strikes children called diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, or DIPG. The cancer kills 90% of children diagnosed with the disease within an 18 month time period. Brayden’s mother has donated his tumor to researchers in hopes that they will eventually find a cure.
