An 8-Year-Old Boy in Eastern Iowa is Now a ‘Ghostbuster’ [VIDEO]
8-year-old Braeden Rios of Wellman, Iowa officially became a superhero this week, and it's all thanks to the 'For the Win Project!'
According to the 'For the Win Project' Facebook page, the non-profit group, "gives children in special circumstances the chance to be their favorite heroes in their very own movie poster and trailer. We create a new sense of hope, motivation, and give a self-esteem boost for each child. Transforming them into HEROES will be influential in raising both awareness and funds for whatever they may be up against."
KCRG reports that Braeden is battling a rare respiratory disease called bronchomalacia, which often forces him to stay indoors during recovery. Since he was three, Braeden has enjoyed watching the movie "Ghostbusters" over and over. That's why the 'For the Win Project' flew Braeden and his family out to L.A. to film his very own "Ghostbusters" trailer! He was even invited to the battle by Lead Ghostbuster Ray Stanz, originally played by Dan Aykroyd. The trailer was finally released last week, and it is absolutely fantastic!
