HAPPY BIRTHDAY “Courageous” Carter Matthew Willett!  He turned 10 on October 17th and he’s been battling Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare form of cancer, since last November. He’s getting chemo treatments at Norton Children’s Hospital, and all he wanted for this birthday birthday cards. LOTS of them. And so far, he’s gotten OVER 25,000 CARDS AND tons of packages from around the globe! And STILL COUNTING!

He even had firefighters bring trucks to his house the morning of his birthday!

So far Carter has received gifts from Cabela’s, Bass Pro Shops, KFC, Arby’s and the U.S. Air Force. Thank you to all who shared his story and made this happen!  Hoping this helps him get through his last few chemo treatments!
