Before you read this and watch the video, you might want to move somewhere your coworkers can't see; you're in for some feels.

This "SpiderDad" fan film was made to honor the memory of the filmmaker's son, Jayden, who passed away last Christmas due to a brain tumor.  After Jayden was diagnosed with a Grade 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme brain tumor at just five years old, Jayden's father began work on a Spider-Man fan film with the intention of having a grand premiere event for his son.  Unfortunately, Jayden didn't get to see that happen, but his father finished the film in his honor:

The SpiderDad Film was inspired by my son Jayden who sadly lost his 18 month battle at Christmas to a Grade 4 Brain Stem Tumor called, Glyoblastoma Multi-Forme. Before he died, we began filming with the full intention of giving Jayden his very own Premiere at home, with drinks and popcorn. Just like at the cinema. I was very passionate about making this look and feel as real as possible for our little super hero. Even to the finest details of webbing effects, stunts, the Spiderman suit and generally providing a feel good energy about the film.

Sadly, the little fighter became very ill, and his very own Premiere wasn’t able to happen. It became a dedication project to the bravest, and most courageous little boy we know, always willing to give a smile and thumbs up at even the most difficult of times. In addition, we wanted this to also raise awareness and money for the charity who gave our family so much support whilst caring for Jayden, as well as the continued after care for our entire family and his big sister Ella.

Now here's where you come in: the money earned from views and ads on this video will go directly to Naomi House, a UK Children's Hospice Center.  You don't have to donate any cash, just watch the video, and share, tweet, or whatever else you do on social media so others can see it too.  And hand me a tissue, somebody's been cutting onions in here.
