Robert Downey Jr has seen Aaron’s video appeal and the support and kindness he has shown to him since has just been incredible.
Aaron received a special FaceTime call from his favourite hero that was magical and such a blessing to watch unfold. During their chat Aaron asked him the question that he has been so desperate to ask;
'Can you please do my #GOMADJUMPFORROHHAD Challenge? and help me raise awareness for all the ROHHAD Kids around the world?'
The most AMAZING NEWS is that Robert said YES!!! He told him he would love to do his challenge and made him feel so special.
Iron Man has answered our brave boys plea for help and in doing so has made him the happiest little boy in the world! He has not stopped smiling since and told us he feels he is the luckiest boy in the world because he is now best friends with Ironman!!
