MARSHFIELD, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Boys and Girls Club of Marshfield revealed a new mural celebrating Danny Sheehan, a boy whose love for Aquaman went viral last year.
Sheehan was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive brain tumor known as pineoblastoma and has been going through chemotherapy.
He has received an outpour of support across the nation. In November 2020, eight-year-old Danny Sheehan went viral when he FaceTimed with actor Jason Momoa.
The Facebook page 4TheLoveofDannywrote about the mural, saying:
The Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield unveiled the Aquaman-themed mural and Believe Bench honoring Danny at last night’s Special Meeting. Thank you to the Club’s Board, Jeff Picard, Kym Waitkus Rossi, and the insanely-talented artist Jack Marcella who made this all possible, to Chief Tavares for his warming speech which had the crowd yelling ‘We Love You Danny’ loud enough so D could hear it at home, and to D’s family in blue (Marshfield Police and Cops For Kids With Cancer, Inc.) who always show up in full force for D. The only thing which topped the bubbly feeling in my heart when they dropped the curtain to reveal Jack’s artwork was the feeling I had seeing other children taking photos in front of the mural. Knowing D’s little superhero face is going to be smiling down on so many for years to come – WOW! So very grateful, lucky, and blessed to live in such a wonderful town.💕 Marshfield MA Forum
Danny has a GoFundMe page that has raised over $130,000.
