The Power Rangers Help Give Young Cancer Patient A Shopping Spree
The Power Rangers are always up for saving the world, but they also have the power to bring joy to fans, and they did just that with a young fan named Grayson.
Grayson Dodd is 3 years old and sadly is dealing with AML Leukemia. A charity called the Foundation for Strength decided to make his day by teaming up with the Westland Toys 'R' Us and the Power Rangers to give him a shopping spree, allowing Grayson to shop in the store before it opened up for business (via Hometown Life).
According to Foundation for Strength's Cory Allen though, Grayson was so enamored with the Power Rangers, who are his favorite heroes, by the way, that shopping wasn't even a priority.
"Grayson had so much fun with the Power Rangers that he wasn't even concerned with shopping for toys. He was finally back to being a fun lovely kid again, playing tag, battle swords and hide and seek with the Rangers. His dad mentioned that this was the first time he has seen Grayson with this much joy in over a month."
It was a welcome reprieve for Grayson, giving him a memory he will never forget. He had a full cart by the end of it, which included a new bicycle, which he can ride after he gets out of the hospital, where's he's undergoing chemotherapy.

Foundation for Strength seeks to help those who are battling cancer and diseases like it, giving people like Grayson reasons to smile and hope. They'll be holding several events to help raise money and awareness, and for more about them, you can head to their official website.
You can find the description for the current season of Power Rangers Ninja Steel below, which is expected to return with new episodes later this year.
"With the franchise's 24th season, Saban Brands' Power Rangers Ninja Steel starts deep in space, where Galvanax is the reigning champion of the most popular intergalactic game show in the universe in which monsters battle to prove who is the mightiest warrior. Galvanax is determined to become invincible by controlling the mythical Ninja Nexus Prism, which contains six supernatural Ninja Power Stars. The only thing standing in his way is a new team of heroic teenage Power Rangers who possess it. The evil Galvanax sends his warrior contestants down to Earth to steal the Ninja Power Stars, where each epic battle against the Power Rangers is broadcast throughout the universe. Together, the Rangers must master their arsenal of Ninja Power Stars, Zords and Megazords, each made of legendary Ninja Steel, in order to stop this evil threat and save Earth from destruction."
