Jimmy Kimmel Honors Young Cancer Patient, Gets Choked Up

by at . Comments

Segments on Jimmy Kimmel Live often leave us teary-eyed from laughter.

But the following footage is guaranteed to give you waterworks of a different kind. It did for the host himself.

On Wednesday night, Kimmel played a tape sent to him from students at Arroyo Elementary School in Tustin, California. It urged the comedian to meet a seven-year old named Max, who has tragically been diagnosed with brain cancer.

Kimmel heeded their advice, brought Max on stage, promoted a charity in his name and then introduced Max to Iron Man.

Watch the moving piece now and see Kimmel get choked up toward the end of it:

Pretty great stuff, huh?
