Little Boy With Terminal Cancer Just Wants BDAY Cards

by Alex posted Jul 23 2014 1:17PM

Not just any birthday cards though, birthday cards with HIS name on them.

Danny Nickerson, a five-year-old Massachusetts boy with a rare form of chemotherapy-resistant cancer, is turning six on Friday, and all he wants for his birthday: 'a box of cards.' 

Danny was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor last October. According to ABC News, doctors say that less than 10per cent of children with the disease, called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glimoma, live longer than 18 months. 

Since he had to drop out of kindergarten, Danny's mother says he occasionally feels lonely - but he gets really excited to receive cards with his name on them.

Carley Nickerson says her son can identify his name, and when he saw it on packages at Easter, 'he was so happy.'


Here's his address:

Danny Nickerson

P.O. Box 212

Foxboro, MA 02035

The Easter presents he received were from Magical Fairy Missions, an organization that sends mailings to children with brain tumors, as well as their siblings. 

At this point, Danny is getting chemotherapy every two weeks, and despite the 18-month outlook, his mother remains optimistic.

'I don't really believe in that. He is doing great,' she said. 'Every day is a blessing.'

The Nickersons lives in Foxboro, a small town about 22 miles south of Boston. Besides Danny, Carley and Dan Nickerson have one other son, Matthew, who's four years old. 

According to the Danny's Warriors Facebook page, an account Mrs Nickerson created to keep everyone updated on her son's progress, Danny was first diagnosed after he complained of having double vision.
