To avoid fainting, keep repeating 'It's only a movie...It's only a movie...'

What happened to Brayden Denton should never happen to any child. At only 5 years old, this sparky kid passed away after a year-long struggle with a brain tumour.

What his family did for him - in his memory - was truly beautiful. Little Brayden was a mega-superhero fan - just take a moment to appreciate how sweet, how heartbreaking but how damn loving, his superhero-themed funeral was.

Brayden's superhero pallbearers would sure have made him smile. Brayden's mom, Staci said, 'The whole time I saw them carrying Brayden he was probably up there going, 'This is so cool.' That was his world. That's what he would have wanted.'

Bravery in the face of tragedy? Standing up for your loved ones? What happened to this family broke me down, but the way they responded made me proud to be human.

The whole Denton family sound like superheroes to me.
