WASHINGTON - A 5-year-old boy with a life-threatening illness has received a top secret letter from 'The Superhero Council.'
Kaheem is from Maryland and is in active treatment for Chronic Myeloid Leukemia. He has told volunteers from Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic that he wishes to help people, save people and to be a superhero.
On Monday our special wish kid, Kaheem, received a top secret letter from The Superhero Council, which Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic delivered to Kaheem on Monday morning. The letter outlines what it takes to be a superhero and informs Kaheem that he may be needed in the next coming days to help out with some trouble that is brewing in the D.C. area.

For now, the details remain top secret, but on Friday you can watch his wish unfold right in front of your eyes on FOX 5 DC Facebook page and live on our FOX 5 DC app. Please stay tuned throughout the week as more clues will be shared about Kaheem's wish day.
You can also follow along on social media and join the fun using the official hashtag, #KaheemSavesDC.
On Kaheem's wish day, Make-A-Wish volunteers will be taking donations on the phone during Good Day DC from 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
We're very excited about making his wish come true this Friday -- and we hope you'll join us to support #SuperKaheem on his big day!
