A 6-year-old San Bruno boy recently launched a Halloween costume drive to give other children who have to spend the day in the hospital something to celebrate.
The catch is that Nico Castro is himself battling brain cancer.
The Huffington Post further explained Nico's efforts:
Nico knows what it feels like to have to sit on the sidelines during the holidays. Last November, instead of celebrating, he was in the hospital, too ill to take part in the festivities. He was diagnosed medulloblastoma, cancer of the cerebellum. But during this scary time, all he could think about was if he would be healthy enough to celebrate his favorite holiday -- Halloween.
So in true superhero fashion, they took action and started a costume drive. "We were so surprised from the support outside of our community. The community really came together packages of costumes are coming from Pennsylvania, Illinois and Texas," said Raul. "The costumes, the little trinkets that the kids in the beds are getting. Just an instant and it changes their demeanor and whole attitude about being sick."
Bob Marshall Jr. and the staff at Marshall Realty donated a number of those costumes at a drive that took place at Nico’s dad’s automotive business on San Mateo Avenue, according to Today.com.
If you want to donate Halloween costumes for Nico's drive, all costumes can be dropped off at C&C Automotive Refurbishing.
