Boy Fighting Cancer Makes Gift Bags for Other Children at His Hospital

A seven-year-old boy, who was undergoing chemotherapy due to bone cancer, prepared bags of gifts for the children on the cancer floor at his hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Rayshawn Mims recorded a video that shows his son, Ahkeem, filling up bags with stuffed animals, snacks, juice and cards, whilst undergoing his cancer treatment in a children’s hospital in Pittsburgh on October 9.

“This is very nice, Ahkeem, you are gonna make all these kids all happy tonight,” Mims says in the video.

Mims told Storyful that Ahkeem was at the end of the fourth round of chemotherapy when he came up with the idea of doing something for his fellow patients.

According to the family’s GoFundMe page, Ahkeem was taken to the emergency room for what was initially thought to be a knee sprain but he was then diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. Credit: Rayshawn Mims via Storyful
