Robert Downey Jr Dressed Up As Tigger, The Reason Why Makes Him A True Superhero.

Seven-year-old Daniel has been diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, a fate that no child should have to contend with. The disease means constant doctors appointments, difficulty breathing, and often, having to wear a port in your chest.

Despite bullying at school, Daniel tries to look at the bright side of things -- After all, doesn't having a port in your chest make you kind of like Iron Man and his arc reactor?

Daniel's mom decided to reach out to Iron Man, otherwise known as Robert Downey Jr, and let him know how much Daniel looks up to him. Downey's response will warm your heart, and possibly bring a tear to your eye.

This is my son Daniel and he has cystic fibrosis, he is seven years old and wants nothing more to meet his idol Robert Downey Jr (aka iron man) as he has managed to get past the bullies he faces from day to day by telling them the he too has a extra special port in his chest much like iron man has his arc reactor, I am sharing this in hope that mr stark (as Daniel calls him out of the suit) could find a way to contact me on here as Daniel could really do with a little lift at the moment after a child at school has told him that all children with cf die. If this reaches him and Daniel could get a reply I hope that it could help him through his stay in hospital as it is starting to take its toll on.

Mr. Stark here. This is for Daniel (@envy_coatings) who was having a rough day recently. When I’m in the dumps, I’ve found this little getup to be helpful. P.S. Would you like to come to the LA premiere of Captain America: Civil War as my guest? If so, have your people call my people. All the best.

Here's another good deed done by Downey.
