It was likely the best birthday gift 5-year-old Jayden had ever received.
Jayden was fighting a grade four brain-stem tumor and his father, Mike Wilson, said doctors told the family the average survival rate was about a year.
That was why Wilson, a Parkour enthusiast, dreamed up an incredible surprise for his son’s birthday last week.
Jayden loves Spiderman, so Wilson had a replica Spider Man costume made in his size. As Jayden’s family began the party Wilson suddenly had to ‘run to the store’ and left.
Wilson wasn’t actually going to the store, instead he was donning the costume and climbing on top of the roof of the family home in Hampshire, England.
When Wilson gave the signal the family ushered little Jayden outside as Spider Man dropped from above to wish him a happy birthday and sweep him into a huge hug.
Then Jayden invited Spider Man into the house for the best birthday party ever.
Wilson said he was proud to have been able to do this for his son.
The family has set up a special Facebook page to follow Jayden’s fight.
