Boy losing battle with leukemia celebrates Halloween early

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Neighbors throw a four-year-old Utah boy an early Halloween celebration.

Ethan Van Leuven is losing his battle with leukemia.

Knowing that time is running out, his family wanted their last days with Ethan to be filled with joy, so they decided to put on a week of holidays.

With the help of his five siblings, Ethan suited up as Superman and went trick-or-treating in his neighborhood.

"We're not sure how long Ethan was going to feel good and so we wanted to do it while he's still feeling okay," said Van Leuven, Ethan's mother.

"I also want him to know how proud I am of him for fighting through this and in the midst of his challenge being such an example of faith," said Ethan's father, Van Leuven.

Other neighbors have been preparing their houses for a Christmas celebration.
