It's rare to see acts as selfless as this...

And Bridger's parents have been applauded for doing such a great job in raising their children.

It didn't take long for celebrities to start sharing the story...

Anne Hathaway seemed proud to tell Bridger's story, writing on Instagram: "I’m not an Avenger, but I know a superhero when I see one. I can only hope I’m half as brave in my life as you are in yours, Bridger. Wishing you an easeful recovery, and many cool looking rocks."

She then tagged her friend, Mark Ruffalo, who responded in the best way...

After catching wind of Hathaway's post, he decided to write a personal comment to Bridger.

He said this:

"I truly respect and admire your courage and your heart. Real courage isn't dominating people or fighting against people or walking around like a tough guy. Real courage is knowing what is right to do and doing it even when it might end up hurting you somehow." "You are more of man than many, many I have seen or known. With Admiration… Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk/Professor)."

And, just to make things even better, a whole array of other celebrities jumped in to commend the 6-year-old.

Octavia Spencer sent her own message, writing: "I'm not an avenger but I know and appreciate them as I appreciate your little hero. Angel hugs for you."

And then, Spider-Man himself weighed in on the story.

Tom Holland decided to reach out to Bridger himself and speak to him over the phone.

Nikki filmed Bridger's phone call to Holland...

And the Spider-Man actor can be heard saying: "I've heard your story, and I just want to say, you're so brave mate! And we are all so proud of you, and your little sister is so lucky to have someone like you."

Holland then asks the heroic little boy who his favorite Avenger is...

And even though Bridger is overcome with shyness, his aunt tells Holland that it is, indeed, Spider-Man.

And when Holland finds out that the little boy was watching Spider-Man Homecoming at the time of the call...

He said: "Aww, you're even more of a hero now!"

This lights up Bridger's face...

And Holland then tells the little boy he's more than welcome to come and visit him on the set of Spider-Man 3 when they begin filming in a few months.

Now that is the offer of a lifetime!
