Electron Boy Saves Seattle…Excuse Me…I Have Something In My Eye
Ok, I’m typically more of a news-and-cool-shit blogger who tends to shy away from the human interest story genre, however, I couldn’t resist this story from the Seattle Times about an elaborate event created by the Make-A-Wish foundation.
13-year-old Erik Martin has terminal Liver cancer, but that didn’t stop him from wanting to be a super hero. Last Thursday was another normal day for Erik, until he got a phone call from a breathless Spiderman, who told Erik that Seattle was in danger, and only Electron Boy (Erik’s superhero alter-ego) could stop it!
The full story is all kinds of heart warming awesome, and can be found at the Seattle Times Online here.
