Christian Bale has once again become a real-life hero for one family.

The 38-year-old – best known for his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the Christopher Nolan trilogy – recently flew four-year old leukemia patient Jayden Barber and his whole family to Disneyland in Los Angeles, California.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bale joined the group for an intimate lunch at Club 33.

“The entire interaction was like old friends having lunch. Jayden did not get star struck but was well aware of who we were with!” Charlene Barber wrote on her son’s Facebook page. “They talked movies and super Heros an he was genuinely happy to hear about everything Jayden wanted to tell him. Christian, his wife and daughter are three of the most beautiful people we have ever met! Christian made these arrangements for us personally and ensured we were treated like royalty. I don’t have even one negative thing to say about them. I can tell you that they were just as impressed w Jayden as Jayden was w them :)

Jayden has been fighting bone cancer for over two years. Despite at one point receiving news that his condition might become terminal after a failed bone marrow transplant, doctors now say his disease is now in remission.
