Four-year-old Branden Witt was looking forward to donning a costume and spending an evening trick o' treating this Halloween, like most young kids his age. But this October 31, Branden will be at the hospital, having neurosurgery--so his neighbors decided to give him an early holiday he'll never forget.
The brilliant idea was actually that of Branden's parents, Carol and Bobby Witt, who found out the date their son was scheduled for Chiari Malformation Decompression surgery and sent fliers around to their neighbors, asking if they wouldn't mind holding a special pre-Halloween celebration for their son. The response, as you'll see, was overwhelming.
More than 40 neighbors in Midlothian, Virginia, got their candy dishes ready a few weeks early in his honor, and cameras were on hand to capture an excited Branden--um, we mean Lightning McQueen--going door to door for his goodies. You'll be unable to hold back the smile watching the clip, we promise.
ICYMI: More than 41 neighbors opened their doors and allowed Branden to celebrate Halloween a little early. 4-year-old Branden will undergo neurosurgery next Monday and will not be well enough to trick or treat on Halloween. Best of luck with surgery Branden! STORY: http://shout.lt/bf73mPosted by NBC12 on Monday, October 19, 2015
