Super Heroes meet a little super hero tonight in Boardman



Published: Thu, August 23, 2012 @ 10:43 p.m.

BOARDMAN

Holy big turnout, Batman was in the house!

That certainly more than suited 4-year-old Jayden J. Barber.

“This is just amazing, a blessing,” said Jayden’s father, Tim Barber, referring to the family, friends and residents who filled the stands at Boardman Center Middle School’s football field on Market Street to see Jayden meet his favorite hero, Batman.

The event Thursday certainly did not disappoint. It allowed him to meet the Caped Crusader, which fulfilled one of the biggest wishes for Jayden, who was diagnosed last November with myelodysplastic syndromes leukemia, a disease in which the bone marrow fails to make enough normal blood cells.

Jayden, his dad and mom, Charlene Barber; and brothers, Noah and Carson, arrived with a police escort, then emerged on the track next to the field from their blue Nissan Altima to thunderous applause.
