Boy Battling Inoperable Brain Tumor Asks for Birthday Cards as Gift
A 5-year-old boy suffering from cancer asks for a gift most children his age overlook. Danny Nickerson is asking for birthday cards this year for his 6th birthday.
Danny was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in October which is one of the most chemotherapy-resistant cancers. In a two month span he received 33 radiations and now has chemotherapy every two weeks. Going to school became hard so he had to quit going to kindergarten causing him to be quite lonely.
One of the things that cheer Danny up is receiving cards. He now recognizes his name so it makes it more fun to receive mail.
Danny has received 40 letters so far through his P.O. box. His birthday is July 25 so everyone is encouraged to send Danny a birthday card to:
P.O. Box 212, Foxboro, MA, 02035
Help make this boy's birthday special by sending him a card. Learn more about Danny and his condition here.
