ABC News: Evan Wears Stormtrooper Mask During Proton Beam Therapy

ABC News has posted a video report about an 8 year old boy who attends St. Louis Children’s Hospital for proton beam therapy for his brain tumour. Evan is a huge Star Wars fan and the staff at the hospital have gone the extra mile and also recruited some familiar helmets to help him during his treatment.

8-year-old Evan has to wear a mask as he undergoes proton beam therapy to fight his brain tumour – so the staff at St. Louis Children’s Hospital surprised him with his very own Stormtroopers helmet “to help empower” him during treatment.

Everyone from Team Jedi News wishes Evan all the very best during his ongoing therapy. May the force be with you Evan!
