CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Superheroes scaled a hospital in Elizabeth Friday morning to save child cancer patients from the boredom of tedious treatments.
Superman, Spider-Man and the Hulk arrived at Novant Health’s Pediatric Cancer building to wash windows.
They surprised children who sit through long, uncomfortable outpatient treatments.
One 13-year-old told Channel 9 it energized him to see the superheroes he said has helped him fight leukemia.
“When I’m in the hospital all I do is read Batman comics,” said patient Matty Mester. “I thought if Batman’s that strong, I can be that strong and I can get through it.”
The superheroes told Channel 9 they love putting a smile on the children's faces.
