Henry Visits Young Cancer Patients, Offers Words Of Support


While Henry was in New York a few weeks ago, he attended a very special screening of Mission: Impossible Fallout with some young cancer patients and their families and also met with other kids. Meagan Celeste helped organize the event and today she shared some pictures and heartwarming details about the day, so make sure to read her write-up below.


"No matter how strong you think Superman is, a child fighting cancer is a thousand times stronger." Henry Cavill delivered these and other heartfelt words when he joined MDC at our recent Mission Impossible: Fallout screening event for kids from Ronald McDonald House and New York Hospital for Special Surgery. After the movie (which was fantastic) and a wildly entertaining Q+A, Henry decided to travel with us all the way back to the House to spend time with more children who were too young to see his film! Despite being in the middle of an exhaustive global press tour that had him in a different city each day, Henry made these kids a priority and I can't thank him enough. We shared a wonderful evening filled with so much laughter, jokes, lots of hugs and kids giving Henry their best Superman impression. My friend Dylan even gave him a gold Superman ring which Henry wore all night, making Dylan feel like a million bucks and moving all of us to tears. @HenryCavill is truly an incredibly sweet kind funny gracious and charismatic super man who radiates goodness and brings hope to those who need it most. Superman has always been my favorite movie superhero and to me, he and Henry will forever be one and the same. Thank you so much to Jennifer Allen; to Sophie at Paramount and Nick at Bryant Park Hotel for providing the venue and all the wonderful gifts and goodies; and to @gregjolleyphotography and @thejohnhedlund for capturing these magical memories for the families; and to Nel, Ben and @jsricca1001 at @rmhnewyork for being such incredible friends and working so hard to help me with these events. Teamwork makes the dream work! #henrycavill #superman #manofsteel #missionimpossible #fallout #clarkkent #mdcproductions #rmhnyc

GregJolleyPhotography helped take these touching photos, and he also talked about how special that day was for everyone involved:

I am incredibly grateful to have been on hand to photograph the experience of @henrycavill meeting the amazing and wonderful families of the @rmhnewyork a couple weeks ago.

@mdceleste from @mdcprods curated this event and brought me on to shoot (which I absolutely love doing), arranging not only a visit from Henry, but a screening of Mission Impossible-Fallout for the families. 

Henry came in at the end of the screening for a Q and A with the kids and families. 

When one child asked "What would you say to kids fighting cancer?" 

Henry's response was just lovely..."No matter how strong you think Superman is, a child fighting cancer is a thousand times stronger."

Thank you to Henry and his incredible team, the folks at Paramount and the Bryant Park Hotel for arranging the screening and swag goodies, the folks at Ronald McDonald House who are always just so nice and awesome and accommodating and do such wonderful work with the families.

I'm honored when I get to do these events. More than just meeting celebs, I get to photograph memories for these families and the amazing people who work with them. The joy they get at meeting their heroes is pretty incredible. These people are absolute warriors.









Thank you to Meagan and Greg for allowing us to share these precious moments with everyone.

  3. Thank you all so much for sharing!! Getting that visit from Henry would have meant more to those parents than they ever could describe, seeing the smiles on their childrens faces. By brightening up the day of those brave kids, making them smile, forget the pain, and feel hope - Henry has literally given those families more time together. Incredible, inspirational, always my super human xx

  4. Henry, it is great to see that you use your influence for good and right things. I think that gives a meaning to life and peace to soul. Every kid is a gift, even sometimes there are hard times, but hope gives a strength and they become fighters. You can see that on their faces <3. I wish them a lot of strength, hope, faith and love.

    I hope you will find a good wife with same values so you can walk in the same direction and I wish you a lot of boy and girl babies. I' m just saying ;)
