FOXBORO, Mass – A five-year-old boy with a rare form of chemotherapy-resistant cancer has just one birthday wish.

Danny Nickerson wants a box of cards on his special day.

Thanks to thousands of people on Facebook he’ll be getting his wish and so much more.

According to the Nickerson family blog Danny was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor last fall.  Only 10% of children with this form of cancer live longer than a year-and-a-half.

But Danny and those who love him aren’t giving up their fight.

Still since the battle has been all encompassing, Danny had to drop out of kindergarten and his family says he can feel pretty lonely.

That’s why he asked for that box of birthday cards.

The request has since gone viral and Danny has spent the last week sorting through boxes and boxes of birthday cards from all over the world.

The family is sharing their fight on a Facebook page called Danny’s Warriors and his aunt keeps up the family blog, Danny’s Journey.

If you want to send Danny a card here’s the address:

Danny Nickerson
PO Box 212
Foxboro, MA 02035
