Big Y grants wish to boy battling cancer

Big Y Foods, Springfield, Mass., participated in a Make-A-Wish America event for a Connecticut boy battling cancer.

The retailer’s Tolland, Conn., bakery department made a Spiderman-themed cake for a party for 6-year-old Camden Soucy, who is battling stage 4 neuroblastoma with metastasis.

Held last week, the party included a special appearance by Spiderman. The Tolland Police Department paid actors to arrive as Spiderman and a villain. Spiderman, with Camden’s help, cuffed the villain and put him in a Tolland Police Cruiser, according to a Big Y Facebook post.

Camden then found out that he and his parents were going on an all-expenses-paid trip to Disney World, courtesy of Make-A -Wish.
