Here at News 5, we've followed the story of young Max Vertin and his two brothers as the Hastings family raises awareness and hope for a rare disease. The brother's suffer from Duchenne muscular dystrophy. At 8 year's old, Max is the oldest of those boys. His muscles have weakened, but that hasn't stopped the 8 year old from dreaming big.
When asked by "Make a Wish" what he'd like to do, Max said he wanted to be like Iron Man. So the organization brought the entire Vertin family to Colorado where SkyVenture helped him soar like a superhero.
Max's two brothers - who suffer from the same disease - got to fly too. And that wasn't the only surprise. Max got to meet Iron Man, who delivered him his very own Iron Man suit.
