Leland Camara, a 5-year-old battling leukemia, was far from selfish when he requested two wishes from the Make-A-Wish Foundation instead of just one.
His first wish was to go on trip to Disneyland with his parents, his twin brother and their older sister. His second wish: To serve hungry kids in his Anchorage, Alaska community, "because I wanted to help out," he told kls.com.
As a send-off party before his family's trip, Leland dressed up in his finest clothing and mouse ears, carefully carrying full plates and glasses to the grateful recipients at Kid's Kitchen, a nonprofit that provides meals for hungry children.
Laura Bruce of the Make-A-Wish Foundation said his reason for the second wish was simple:
"When I asked him if he was sure he wants to serve other kids, he says, ‘So many people helped me so I want to help others,'" Bruce told kls.com.
And after everyone else was served, Leland sat down to his own plate of food, his grin as big as ever.
"I wanted to make sure everyone who wanted to eat, ate."
