We recently saw on the news that there was a sweet little boy from Massachusetts named Danny Nickerson that is battling cancer. His one wish was to get a whole bunch of birthday cards on his birthday, July 25th. The news station encouraged us to send him cards and gave his address where we could send them.
After we saw the news clip I thought that would be something sweet for us to do for Danny. So I had Maggie make a card and then got our MidTown class at church on board and they made him cards too!
After all this I realized that this story had gone viral! I started seeing it everywhere – on the news, on Facebook, etc. I started looking into how many people from Hampton Roads sent cards to Danny and I couldn’t even count how many! I am so proud to be from a place that cares like we do here in Hampton Roads. People took time to write, make, and send birthday cards to a little boy that they didn’t even know. That is so sweet and kind and I am sure it completely made his day!
It wasn’t just Hampton Roads that got on board though! There were thousands of people who sent cards from all over the country and the world. People from California, Utah, Florida, England, the Netherlands, Mexico, and on and on and on it goes. Danny’s wish definitely came true! He has more mail than he can keep up with.
We are praying for this sweet little boy’s recovery and hope you will join us. If you would like to send a belated birthday card, there is still time! Just send it to P.O. Box 212, Foxboro, MA, 02035.
