Anderson Silva went the hospital to pay visit to a young boy who was a huge fan.
Such a great story! UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva probably just made this young boys life so much better. A 12 year old, Joao Pedro, had been training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu since he was 5. Now, Pedro is suffering from a rare bone disorder called epiphysiolysis, basically he is now disabled in a wheelchair.
Pedro’s mom was able to get in contact with Silva’s Dentist, and the story caught Silva’s attention motivating the champ to head to the hospital for a surprise visit.
From the looks of the video, it seems like this act of kindness brought some awesome hope for Pedro. The boy’s emotions were evident with Silva’s presence.
It’s great to see acts of kindness like this coming from celebrities. Heart warming and major kudos to Anderson for his magnanimous gesture!
