Jason Momoa, the Aquaman star, recently made a surprise video call to an Aquaman superfan who is currently undergoing treatment for a rare form of brain cancer. When WBZ, the local CBS Boston affiliate, produced a video of a seven years old superfan of Aquaman, whose name is Danny Sheehan, receiving an Aquaman toy.
The clip quickly went viral, and when Jason Momoa himself saw that video, he made a decision to do something really special for Sheehan, calling him via Facetime to surprise the boy with a chance to meet his superhero.
Sheehan opens up an Aquaman toy with very excitement in the original video, explaining that it is his favorite character. Sheehan even shouts that he loves Aquaman to really drive home the point.
In the video that has been posted to the Instagram handle of Momoa, Sheehan cheerfully greets the Aquaman actor with an excited, “Hi Aquaman”, and tells him that he is so excited to be talking to him.

Sheehan tells the actor during their conversation that he is doing well and that he also loves dolphins, to which Jason asks if he has ever seen a dolphin. When Sheehan admits that he has not seen a dolphin, Jason Momoa responds to it and says, “We gotta make that happen.”
Later in the video, Sheehan asks if he can show Jason something, and when Momoa sees it, he literally falls back into his chair in gleeful laughter. When the camera turns back to the boy on screen, he is holding an Aquaman toy, and Jason and the mother of the boy joke that it looks just like him.
The seven years old boy seemed to greatly enjoy this video call and his time talking with his hero, and the conversation was posted on the official Instagram handle of Momoa, where it has since blown up over the social media, being shared all over and reported by several news outlets.
You should also know that Danny Sheehan has been diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer called Pinoblastoma, and he is currently being treated for it with the support of his parents and his community.
In the post, Jason also thanked the fans and the community which made him aware of the situation of Danny Sheehan and also included a link in his bio to a GoFundMe page where people can donate to his family.
