4-year-old Dominic Kerr has been battling leukemia (blood cancer) for the past two years of his life and was granted a wish by the wonderful people at the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Most sick children granted a wish would get something for themselves to brighten their days a little bit, but Dominic decided what would make him happiest would be to spread joy to other sick children. His wish was to provide toys to the other sick children at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Marty Ostrow Hematology/Oncology Outpatient Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
A 4yo being this selfless is truly amazing and something that really restores our faith in humanity like a boss.
Dominic hit up Toys R Us and Walmart during an epic toy shopping spree to fill the treasure chest at the hospital with toys for all the kids to play with. Make-A-Wish President Judith Stone praised Dominic, “Dominic wished not for himself but for other children. He had a memory of coming to children’s hospital, and one of the highlights was going to the treasure chest.”
Each donated toy has a sticker on it that reads, “Donated by Dominic,” and when Dominic was asked why he chose to have this wish granted, he simply said, “Because I want to make other kids happy.”
His father Mick was also delighted by his son’s selfless generosity and said, “Just seeing him, as happy as the toys made him, I hope it makes other kids as happy, and hope it gives them hope and makes it an easier time in the whole situation.”
Dominic Kerr, you are a true boss and inspiration to many children and adults alike. We wish you all the best! Keep being bosslike!
