A 5-year-old boy with an inoperable brain tumor has one wish for his birthday: a box full of birthday cards with his name on them.
Danny Nickerson, from Foxboro, Massachusetts, was diagnosed with an inoperable and chemotherapy-resistant tumor this past October. He has stopped going to kindergarten during therapy, and gets lonely, according to his family.
"He can recognize his name now," the boy’s mother Carley Nickerson told ABC News. "When he saw his name on the package from magical fairies on Easter, he was so happy."
Nickerson says personalized cards make Danny happy, and has opened a P.O. box to collect letters from well-wishers.
Doctors say less than 10% of children diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, like Danny, live beyond 18 months.
"I don’t really believe in that," Nickerson says. "He is doing great. Every day is a blessing for us."
Danny has received about 40 letters so far, and his birthday is on July 25th.
Letters can be sent to:
P.O. Box 212
Foxboro, MA 02035

I don’t usually post my own text, let alone beg for help, but my puppy is in so much pain. She was recently scratched in the eye by one of her dog friends and it became so severely infected this past week. We were cleaning it with a spray prescribed by her vet and giving her stuff for the swelling. This morning we woke up to this(right hand picture). I’m bawling to the point where I can’t breath. Her vet says we have to remove her eye completely. It’s going to cost us $500 and we can’t afford it. I’m begging for help at this point. She’s my baby before I had my baby. She’s the biggest sweetheart ever and she deserves health and happiness. Please reblog and share this as much as possible, please!
