Texas Cop Dressed as Superman Drives 11 Hours to Surprise Boy with Cancer


One seven-year-old boy who has been fighting cancer finds happiness in superheroes. One Dallas police officer who dresses up as superheroes for the organization “Heroes, Cops and Kids” decided to make this little boy’s day.

Bryce Schottel has been fighting lymphatic cancer since February and in the midst of his chemotherapy, doctors have found a minor infection in his lungs.

ABC News reported superheroes have been lifting his spirits throughout his chemotherapy rounds.

Dallas police senior corporal Damon Cole drove 11 hours from Dallas to Smithton, Illinois to pay Bryce a visit as a superhero.

“They had a Superman campaign up there for Bryce,” Cole told ABC News. “I really go all out to impact the kids. My car is Superman themed, so I asked, ‘Would you mind if I came up there and showed him my car and dress in my costumes?'”

Cole visited Bryce and gave him a collector’s Superman figurine.

Cole plans to visit St. Louis Children’s Hospital, so he can show up again in his Man of Steel gear for Bryce, along with other children who are patients there.
