Your friendly neighborhood Lebanon Spider-Man

By: 
CHRIS RODEN FOR THE LACLEDE RECORD

Lebanon’s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is on the lookout for kids that need to smile their way to better days.
Like the popular Spider-Man of comic books and movies, he shows up unannounced.
However, instead of battling a villain with a masterful display of fisticuffs and acrobatics, this Spider-Man plays games with the kids and poses for pictures with them and their parents.
He has already fought his arch nemesis: colon cancer.
Having faced it and survived, this Spider-Man wants to help kids fight their own battles.
“I want to go to the pediatric cancer wards being a cancer survivor myself. I didn’t know much about colon cancer myself, but man, when you know you’ve got it, you do all the research you can,” Spidey said.
