Season of Wishes: A look back at Superhero Kaheem -- who is now cancer free!

- Last year, FOX 5 stepped in to help make the dreams of a young man named Kaheem come true.

We fell in love with this young man from Maryland who we met while he was fighting leukemia. Kaheem told us that he wanted to be a superhero, so FOX 5 partnered with Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic to make that wish happen.

During his Wish Day, Kaheem shined as Commander-in-Chief, helped rescue Santa, and even stopped the Grinch from stealing Christmas. His mom, Dionne, says his Wish Day helped their family in so many ways and created memories he will never forget.

But defeating bad guys wasn't the only victory Kaheem claimed this past year. "Things are going great," Dionne said "His health is excellent and he's cancer free!"

The pint sized crime fighter fought the toughest battle and came out on top! These days, his super Kaheem doll helps him fight crime from his home in Maryland -- cancer free and happy.
