CLEVELAND– At six months old, he had his third open heart surgery. At 6 years old, he came chief of the Cleveland Division of Police.
FOX 8 News joined forces with Cleveland police, the Cleveland Office of the FBI and A Special Wish Foundation to make CJ DeJohn’s dreams come true.
The kindergartner was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, which is a rare heart condition that effects one in 5,000 babies.
Basically, CJ has half a heart. But his heart is full of love for others and his dream is to protect people.
On Thursday, the 6-year-old was sworn in as chief of police for the day. Minutes later, The Crump committed an evil caper.
