You don't have to be the man of steel or scale buildings to be a superhero. They come in all shapes and sizes. Dominic Osorio is an example of that. He was small in size, but mighty in spirit.
"Dominic had so much strength and such a positive attitude," recalls his mother, Nicole Spagna.
That's how he earned the nickname The Dominator. His family and doctors at Johns Hopkins developed the superhero persona to help him fight pediatric brain cancer.
It helped. He was brave and faced new treatments head-on. Sadly, Dominic passed away at the age of 7 after two years of cancer treatments. His mother is determined to honor his tenacity with a walk called DO Believe.
"If I behave like a grieving mother than his memory goes to a dark place. There was nothing dark or sad about Dominic," Spagna explains.
She started the Do Believe Walk and in three years she has raised $50,000 for pediatric cancer. She wants to do so much more and she is calling on the community to help. The walk is Sept. 7 and they are hoping more people will sign up. If you want more information, visit www.dobelieve.org
