I guess real life does imitate art. Yes, he played a superhero on the big screen in Guardians of the Galaxy, and, apparently, Chris Pratt is a hero in real life. On Thursday, Pratt took to his Facebook page to share the exciting news that a little girl named Emma beat cancer! Woohoo! First, congratulations to the adorable Emma. Second, let's all swoon over the amazing man that Pratt is. Not only is the photo and caption he shared with fans super sweet, but so is the fact that he takes time out of his busy schedule to visit sick children and those in need.
Pratt included the following message with the photo:
After a long battle with childhood leukemia, Emma is going home cancer free!!! Atta girl! You kicked cancer's butt!!! Thank you to Children's Hospital Orange County for setting up an amazing visit and to Emma for my wonderful painting.
This isn't the first time Pratt has spent time with sick children. In August 2014, Pratt visited the Children's Hospital Los Angeles, where he arranged a screening of the Guardians of the Galaxy and even dressed up as his character, Star-Lord. He spent more than three hours in his costume and visited patients who were too sick to watch the movie in the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit, the Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases, and the Pediatric ICU.
Yep, Pratt is a real life superhero doing a lot of good in this world.
