NEW CAROLLTON, Md. - We want to introduce you to an adorable 4-year-old boy named Jaylen.
Like most little boys, Jaylen absolutely loves superhero action figures. During this young New Carrollton residents brave battle with leukemia, he stayed busy by playing with his favorite superhero action figures. When Jaylen learned he was going to receive a wish from Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic, he knew exactly what he wanted - a shopping spree to add more action figures to his collection!
Thanks to Make-A-Wish, Jaylen's wish came true and he was treated like a VIP for the entire day of his wish. He took a limo ride to all of his shopping spree shops, and it gave him a day that focused on something other than his leukemia and treatment.
