12-Year-Old Boy With Down Syndrome Gets Kiss From Pope After Battling Cancer

A boy from Ohio wanted one thing above all others. He wanted to be kissed by “that man in white.” That man happened to be Pope Frances.

And 12-year-old Peter Lombardi, who has Down syndrome and has beaten cancer, hoped for a kiss from the head of the Catholic Church.

The child got his wish and a ride in the Popemobile.
