It’s safe to say that in these days that happy stories surrounding comic fandom are few and far between. Just this past week, we have seen a group attempting to bring down the Rotten Tomatoes score for Captain Marvel ahead of its release next week. So it’s nice that every once in a while we get a little bright spot in the darkness and the latest example of this is possibly one of the brightest – and it involves Avengers: Endgame.
It was revealed today that Charitable Organisation, One List One Life, has rented out an entire Sacramento Theatre so that those suffering from Cancer can enjoy Avengers: Endgame in a friendly and supportive environment. The organization is headed by Dillon Hill and Clay Stevens, whose main aim is to help those suffering from the terrible disease achieve something from their bucket list.
This recent act of goodwill actually came about in an effort to help Lexi, a girl diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma back in 2017. One of Lexi’s hopes is to actually meet a Marvel actor. After getting the word out over social media via the use of the #AvengerStrong hashtag, the pair eventually decided on the renting of the theater in an attempt to draw attention to the campaign aswell as giving deserving people the chance to check out the highly anticipated sequel.

It’s not unknown for members of the cast to help out with campaigns such as this, in the past we have seen actors such as Chris Pratt, Chris Evans and Tom Holland visit children’s hospitals to deliver toys and spread joy to it’s patients. Hopefully someone within the MCU family does manage to see this and give Lexi the chance to knock that wish off her list.
Stories like this definitely restore some faith in the community, although you do have to remember that the majority of fans are good people and it’s only a small minority who choose to ruin it for the rest.
Avengers: Endgame hits theaters in two months time and be sure to help the campaign by sharing #AvengerStrong.
