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.
Hey, this actually made it on my dash! Listen, folks, this little boy is from my area, and a bunch of my friends and family have already sent out their birthday cards to him!

Come on guys,this will probably be his last birthday. You can even make a card with printer paper and send it lettermail. Will cost you 5 dollars tops! <3 Went out today and got him a few things,I think he deserves it.
Never forget that you don’t have to be a Daddy to be a Caregiver! ANYONE can be a Caregiver, and just one of the many Caregiver roles is Mommy Domme. I made this shout out because I’m a Mommy to my little one and I feel like 90% of Ageplay dominant love goes to Daddies only… There’s nothing wrong with being a Daddy Dom. I’m not dissing you Daddies out there. You’re awesome! I just think us Mommies need a bit more love and recognition. :)
