Christian Bale takes young cancer patient to Disneyland
— Posted by Ryan
Earlier this year we heard about Christian Bale’s personal visits to the victims of “The Dark Knight Rises” Aurora shooting. Christian Bale has popped up in the news again for recently flying a four year old cancer patient and his family to Disneyland. Jayden Barber was diagnosed with bone cancer back in 2010 and the condition turned into MDS leukemia. After a failed bone marrow transplant, Jayden is now in remission. After hearing of this, Christian Bale paid for the family’s trip to Disneyland and ensured that they all got the royal treatment. He later joined them for a quiet lunch at Disneyland’s Club 33 this past week.
Some of you may call this a publicity stunt but Christian Bale isn’t taking advice from his publicist on these random acts of kindness. He is staying away from the media and the photos shown come from various social media outlets, not the press. Christian may have had some outbursts in the past but honestly who hasn’t? He’s taken his own personal time to be with these people rather than taking the easy route of just giving them some money. I truly admire what he is doing with his fame, it is very honorable and I think this makes him a hero on and off screen.

First and foremost, Ryan Brown is a fan. He has been an avid fan of both the theater and cinema since an early age and his passion for both has been continually growing ever since. When dissecting a film, he focuses on all elements of film-making including some fan/cult factors. He believes that character development is the foundation of a good film and usually starts his analysis of a film from there moving forward. His writing style may be influenced by his background of narrative and argumentative studies in the subject, but he tends to enjoy a more conversational style to better interact with the readers, unlike some other pretentious and pompous writers.
