Heroes onscreen, and for a child, heroes in real life. Fox News personality Shannon Bream sent out a request via social media in an attempt to connect a dying child with one of the actors in Marvel’s Avengers. Need your help Twitterverse — trying to help a young boy who is dying," Bream said. "He probably has just days and all he want[s] is a greeting from one of the Avengers. If you have a celeb connection, please let me know. Otherwise, could you help out with a RT? Thank you in advance!" Her post was retweeted more than 10,000 times and both Chris Evans (Captain America) and Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) answering the call. "I’m more of a ‘Reserve Avenger.’ But happy to help," Reynolds said.
Both actors are known to have a huge heart, having spent time with young fans who suffered from serious medical conditions in the past.
Evans stars in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War and Reynolds in Deadpool 2.
"Thank you, EVERYONE! Major progress has been made because of you. A special assist coming in from @jaketapper. I guess Twitter can be full of love when someone really needs it," Bream wrote
