A brave little superhero named Kaheem recently had a very busy day fighting crime in the nation’s capital area. The 5-year-old boy from Maryland is currently in active treatment for leukemia, but that didn’t stop him from saving the day on Friday, Dec. 16.
Kaheem wanted nothing more than to help people just like his favorite superheroes, so Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic decided to help make that wish come true. So, when Kaheem received a top-secret letter from ‘The Superhero Council’ explaining that his help was needed in Washington, D.C., he knew just what he had to do.
Fox 5 news was there the entire day to capture “Super Kaheem” in action. Some of the 5-year-old’s missions included saving Santa Claus, stopping the Grinch from stealing presents, and rescuing the DC sports mascots from a second-floor balcony.
And, it seems that everyone took notice of the little superhero’s extraordinary efforts. Kaheem received notable shoutouts from Vice President Joe Biden, Speaker Paul Ryan, and even The Rock.
