Brock “B-Rock” Johnson is a local teenager from Canal Winchester, who has been in out of the hospital since he was five days old.
Doctors have never been able to diagnose what he has, but through it all, he’s stayed positive.
On April 13, he got to walk the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of “The Avengers: Age of Ultron”.
“They were asking for autographs and pictures. It was crazy,” said B-Rock.
B-Rock was invited to the premier by Iron-Man himself, Robert Downey Jr.
“It’s kind of hard to put into words, but it was one of the best times of my life,” said B-Rock.
“It’s just amazing that this incredibly popular actor has nothing to gain by being nice to this little 14-year-old in Columbus, Ohio. He just does it out of the goodness of his heart,” said B-Rock’s mom, Kristi Skilling Johnson.
Downey Jr. heard of B-Rock through a mutual friend. They often text and Facetime one another.
B-Rock also has a pair of glasses given to him personally by the actor.
But the most important thing given to B-Rock by the actor, was the memories.
“It did more for him than any medicine could ever do. He was a different kid from Thursday to Tuesday,” said Johnson.
And he needs those positive thoughts. B-Rock recently had a liver transplant, and now there are complications.
But like he’s done all his life, B-Rock takes it all in stride. “You have bad days, and you have your good days. You just got to fight.”
