Chris Evans Records Inspiring Video for a Sick Boy

Captain America to the rescue!

Chris Evans this week recorded an inspiring video for Owen Simmons, a 7-year-old boy hospitalized with heart trouble – and Owen, a huge superhero fan, was so excited that he recorded a video to send back to Evans.

“I hear you’re going through some stuff. But you know what, you’re a warrior. Don’t forget it,” the Avengers: Age of Ultron actor told Owen. In his video reply, Owen said: “You are the best superhero in my world, and your suit is very cool!”

Evans reaches out to sick children regularly, even dressing as Captain America to visit Seattle Children’s Hospital with Chris Pratt back in March.

Owen, meanwhile, was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), or half a heart. He has had three pallative open heart surgeries that allow him to survive. He is currently on a wait list for a heart transplant.

His family regularly blogs about their journey on this site>.
