Massachusetts boy battling cancer wants one thing -- birthday cards
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 of Foxborough, Massachusetts, was diagnosed with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG)-- one of the most chemotherapy-resistant cancers -- in October of last year. He has stopped going to kindergarten during therapy, and gets lonely, according to his family.

Danny turns 6 years old on July 25, and there's one thing at the top of his list - a card from you! Nickerson says personalized cards make Danny happy, and has opened a P.O. box to collect letters from well-wishers.

You can help make this a special birthday for this special family by sending a card to:

Danny Nickerson
P.O. Box 212
Foxborough, MA 02035

Happy birthday, Danny!
