An East Texan's wish led him to 'Avengers: Infinity War' Premiere

An East Texan's wish led him to 'Avengers: Infinity War' Premiere

Brookeland, TX (KTRE) - Stephen "Zack" Everett of Brookeland got to experience something that millions of people dream of - attend the premiere of the highly anticipated movie the 'Avengers: Infinity War' in Los Angeles, California.

The 10-year-old was invited to the Dolby Theatre in downtown Hollywood to stand on the red carpet for the premiere that had the biggest movie opening of all time.

Everett not only saw the movie but he also met, talked, and took pictures with all of the actors from the film.

The Brookeland native's dream came true with the help of the Kids Wish Network, a children's charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses.

Everett suffers from Chiari malformation which causes the cerebellum to push into the space occupied by the spinal cord. Due to this condition, Zack is not able to enjoy a carefree childhood of running, jumping and playing sports like most of his peers, according to KWN.

After, the network found out about his love for superheroes they began working to make his super "Marvel"ous wish come true.

Not long after, Zack and his family flew from Texas to Los Angeles and were met with a first-class limousine to chauffeur him and his mom to the premiere.

"I had an awesome time seeing all the stars," Zack said. "And the movie was great."

Zack was able to see actors Chris Pratt, Scarlett Johansson, Bradley Cooper, Samuel L. Jackson, Paul Rudd and Chris Hemsworth.

"He had the best time of his life. He was also so happy to go on a trip and not have to see doctors," his mom said.

"It put a big smile on his face that I haven't seen in a long time," his grandmother Rebecca said.

Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai said, "Zack has been through so much, and his positive outlook greatly inspires others. We're so thrilled that we could give him a wish of such magnitude with all of his favorite superheroes."
