John Boyega is just as big of a hero in real life as he is as Finn in Star Wars. He just visited sick children in the hospital dressed up as Finn. This is such an absolutely awesome thing for him to do. I love seeing this. He came with Star Wars toys to give them as well. Look at the smiles on their faces. This is so great!
Here are the photos that John posted on Instagram:
This little stormtrooper Daniel had a wonderful wish after seeing the force awakens. Daniel currently lives with a brain tumour and rather than having Finn to himself he wanted Finn to meet the kids at the Royal London hospital and give them some toys. I stayed in character while I was with this brave boy asking him what a car was. He taught Finn about everything earth related! Really thankful for the opportunity this child granted me and I'm just humbled! I hope I played a little part in making you smile young stormtrooper. ❤️❤️❤️
John went to the Royal London Hospital, teaming up with Ray’s of Sunshine children’s charity. He went with Daniel Bell, a 5 year old boy who’s wish was to spend the day with Finn. Daniel has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. It’s so amazing to see that he got his wish fulfilled and got to meet his hero.
The two of the them handed out Star Wars toys together, along with a girl named Layla. As you can see, they had a lot of fun! Lots and lots of happiness.
Here is what Daniel’s mom, Rosalind had to say on Facebook about the awesomeness:
Thank you so so much Rays of Sunshine and John Boyega for granting Daniel’s wish to meet Finn and take toys to the hospital. It was just amazing, I have no words! Daniel is still totally overwhelmed, I have never seen him so happy xxx
When I heard about Daniel’s wish to meet Finn, I jumped at the chance to make it come true. It was fantastic to be a part of his very special wish with Rays of Sunshine.
It was also great to meet the children at The Royal London Hospital and be a part of something so positive.
