GRAHAM, Washington --When Bubby Everson asked for mail for his 9th birthday he never expected this.

14,000 letters and 3,000 packages have arrived at the terminally ill 8-year-old's home in Graham since last week and his official birthday isn't even until Wednesday.

Soon Bubby's parents shared their story with Q13 FOX,  the cards, letters and stickers began pouring in from across the country.

“What started out as us hoping some people would send some cards has turned into packages, custom paintings,” said Thomas Everson, Bubby’s dad.

“It`s way beyond what we ever expected.”

Bubby is battling a host of health issues, including Cytomegalovirus and Scoliosis.

Not knowing how many birthdays he may have left, His parents wanted to make sure his 9th birthday was the best ever.

Bubby's story was picked up and shared by news organizations around the globe and since that time the mail has been arriving literally by the box full.

“We've got so many stickers now that we're going to be able to wall paper our entire house with stickers,” said Thomas.

Bubby is going through every card, peeling every sticker, but there are thousands. The boxes are piling up, and they're coming from around the world from places like China, Australia, and Cuba.

“We feel absolutely blessed. The amount of love from strangers is overwhelming and it fills our heart.”
