Some of Hollywood’s biggest superheroes have come together and become real-life heroes to one little boy. Shannon Bream, an anchor on Fox News @ Night, tweeted out yesterday looking for a shout out from any of the Avengers that would be willing to help out a little boy named Emilio, who she says has “just days” to live.
Need your help Twitterverse – trying to help a young boy who is dying. He probably has just days and all he want 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!

The tweet has now gone viral with almost 40 thousand RTs and likes. She’s had several Avengers assemble to contact her and even some actors from outside of that superhero group. Chris Evans, who plays Marvel’s Captain America, was a big name to lend a hand. Even Zachery Levi, who plays DC Comic’s Shazam and was in two of the Thor movies, reached out.
Happy to! DM me

I’m more of a “Reserve Avenger”. But happy to help. DM me.

I’m not technically an Avenger, but I’d be happy to record a video for the little man and do my best impressions of @ChrisEvans @prattprattpratt @chrishemsworth or any other Chris if necessary. 🙏 Where can I/we send these messages, and what’s his name?! https://t.co/jBTOepXzOf

With all of the progress Bream has made with her campaign in under 24 hours, there are bound to be even more Avengers assembling for a great cause. Just goes to show, sometimes the internet is an inspiring place.
This is the kind of thing that restores faith in humanity – three Avengers' messages have made it to Emilio, two more are on the way. Again – huge thank you to @jaketapper for helping to get this thing off the ground – and to everyone who RT'd and shared contacts. God bless! https://t.co/lEM94eyEWE
