Actor Jason Momoa proved he is still one of the best superheroes after he surprised a 7-year-old cancer patient with a virtual visit.
The “Aquaman” star surprised Danny Sheehan, who is a huge fan of the superhero, over FaceTime, according to an Instagram shared by the actor Thursday. Sheehan is battling pineoblastoma, a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer. He was first diagnosed with the disease in 2017.

“So I just wanted to say thank you to the community, friends and family on Instagram for reaching out and showing me this beautiful boy Danny who is going through chemo and has cancer,” Momoa captioned a series of videos of the virtual visit. “I saw his video online that made me want to get in touch and FaceTime him and spend some time talking to him.” (RELATED: Actor Jason Momoa Says He Has ‘Midwest Roots,’ Just Wants To Work Hard)
Momoa reached out to Sheehan after a video of the child opening an “Aquaman” toy went viral.
I love when Hollywood actors and actresses sit down and do things like this for their fans. This virtual visit and conversation between Sheehan and Momoa will mean so much to this little boy.
It’s so nice to see Hollywood stars be normal people with emotions and empathy.
