According to a post this afternoon on IJR’s website, Aiden Davis is only 10-year-old but has been fighting cancer since he was three. His wish was to see to see David Copperfield perform.
Mr. Copperfield apparently heard about the young man and his wish through a social media campaign. He granted it and then some. He flew Aiden and his family to Las Vegas and dropped in on them once they checked into their hotel room.
They traveled by limo (Aiden’s first) to the iconic Welcome to Las Vegas sign where the two posed for a memorable photograph and then headed out for sightseeing and finally a visit to Mr. Copperfield’s hidden warehouse/museum of magic.
They finished off the visit with Aiden getting the best seat in the theater, in a perfect position to see Mr. Copperfield perform.
Mr. Copperfield expressed thanks to Aiden and his family for the opportunity to meet and spend time with “an example of strength and courage for him and all who have been fortunate enough to meet him.”
Like we said, in case you needed another reason to love Mr. Copperfield. We’re going to get some tissues and be thankful.
