Danny Nickerson was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour, on October 24 last year — four days after he bumped his head in the playground.
His mum, Carley, said that what he really wanted for his sixth birthday was mail.
“He just wanted news, he loves, loves getting mail, seeing things with his name on it,” said his aunt.
His birthday went viral and on his sixth birthday Friday 25 July. He did receive mail — nearly 100,000 birthday cards and 8,000 parcels were ready for collection at his local post office in the town of Foxborough, Massachusetts.
He received birthday cards of all sizes from all over the world and it took multiple trips by his dad, Daniel Jameson, over several hours to get them home.
“With all the sadness that we do have in our lives right now it’s amazing to see him so happy. The cards are giving Danny something to do each day and his family is eternally grateful.
Danny though has had 33 radiation treatments and has chemotherapy every two weeks.
“We hope there is going to be a cure,” said his aunt. We hope so too. Our very best wishes go to Danny and his family.
