The man behind the most-viewed news story of the week is the story of a little boy’s quest for happiness in the face of a deadly illness.

A report on Monday by The Telegraph in Britain said the boy, a three-year-old from Lancashire, had become a “celebrity of the moment” following the release of his viral video of himself eating a carrot cake and being “thrilled”.

The boy, named Chris, who goes by the stage name “The Guy” on social media, posted the video of him eating a banana on his YouTube channel on May 15, 2016, and it went viral, reaching nearly 1.4 million views in less than three days.

It was then revealed the child had a rare genetic disorder called cystic fibrosis, a chronic, progressive disease that causes a body’s immune system to overreact against the healthy cells of the body.

Chris had been diagnosed with the rare condition in March, and he was receiving treatment at the age of 10.

In the video, Chris, whose real name is Chris Hodge, was seen eating a “super healthy” banana.

The Telegraph reported that, while some people might think of the video as “entertaining”, the boy’s family said the video was “a way of showing his family he is doing well, he’s doing well with life and he’s making it through.”

The boy has since been seen wearing a “Crown of Fruits” T-shirt and wearing a blue jumper.

“This was a very brave decision for him and I think we’re all proud of him,” Chris’s mother, Debbie Hodge told The Telegraph.

“He has become a very important part of our family.”

Chris was treated for cystic Fibrosis at the Royal Free Hospital in London, where he received a lung transplant and is now receiving life-saving medical care.

Chris is a popular figure in the UK and he has also appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

Chris has also received awards from the BBC for his viral videos and he received the 2017 British Heart Foundation Award for Excellence in Inspiring Change.

Chris’s mother Debbie told The Times that she has been overwhelmed by the response to the video and that she is “absolutely delighted with the support she has received”.

“I am so proud of what he’s achieved in his life,” she said.

“I think it’s really wonderful that people feel like he is making it, and that he is being recognised and supported.”

Debbie told the newspaper that the family is “happy for him” and they are “just thrilled with what he is going through”.

“He is such a special boy, and we’re just so happy that people are so proud to support him.”
