9 Year Old With Cancer Wants Christmas Cards For His Last Christmas
We need your help to brighten up this boys day.
If you missed it on the show today, we got talking about 9 year old Jacob Thompson, who was diagnosed with Stage 4 high risk neuroblastoma back in February of 2014.
He was just 5 years old and according to SunnySkyz, a few weeks ago the doctors caring for Jacob had to deliver tragic news to him and his family.
Jacob won't be leaving the hospital and he only has about a month to live.
Jacobs family said that he absolutely loves Christmas and after getting the horrible news they decided to fast forward Christmas to give Jacob one last celebration.
So they have decorated his room with a tree and lights, fake snow and, of course, Santa Claus will be there. Just like most 9 year olds, Jacob was asked what he wants this year and he said he would like presents and cards from his family and friends.
But he also would love cards from anyone in the world who feels inspired to reach out to him.
Thats where we come in. A story like this is awful to read but if we can help in making Jacob's last days happier with a simple card, we need to do it.
You can send your cards to Jacob, here is the address and if you are intrested he loves penquins and Star Wars..
