Cancer Survivor Says President Trump's $10K Donation Saved His Life


An 11-year-old boy with cancer received video greetings from some of his favorite on-screen superheroes after several of Marvel’s “Avengers” rallied to fulfill his dying wish.

On Sunday, "Fox News @ Night" host Shannon Bream sent a request out via Twitter in the hopes of connecting the boy with one of the actors who make up the superhero squad.

Bream sent the tweet after she met a man during a flight who spoke about his nephew, Emilio, who he said was very sick and only had a few days left to live.

The man later reached out to Bream and revealed that the boy is a huge fan of the “Avengers.” He asked if it would be possible to have an actor who plays one of the superheroes send him a video.

Within a few hours, Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, and Paul Bettany, who takes on the role of Vision, offered to help.

Benedict Wong (Wong) and Don Cheadle (War Machine) also got involved.

Even actors who portray superheroes in other franchises, including Ryan Reynolds, Chloe Bennet and Zachary Levi, reached out to help.

FoxNews.com reported that the first batch of videos have been sent, and fellow “Avengers” stars Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) and Paul Rudd (Ant-Man) will also be sending greetings to the boy.

Bream tweeted her thanks on Monday night, writing that, "Twitter can be full of love when someone really needs it."


UPDATE: Shannon later shared that Emilio lost his fight and she thanked everyone who had helped lift his spirits before he passed.
