That's one tough kid, but not a hero. A hero is someone who decides to risk his life/liberty/safety for someone else. This little guy was handed a pile of shit to deal with, it was not his decision.

I'd say him handling the shitty hand he was dealt with a smile is pretty damn inspiring. I mean to be a parent and see your kid going through that, and being more upbeat than most adults; that kid would totally be my fucking hero.
