What a success this was! Thank you to my lovely friends who sent cards, or reflagged to help little Danny receive over 8,500 cards and over 900 packages from all over the world…
Here is what his mom said:
“Todays total rough count was a little over 8500 cards and 900 packages!!! We filled the uhaul completely up! And then filled 3 cars too!” the family posted on Facebook this week. “We are in awe of all of this, we are speechless and dont have enough words to explain how thankful we are for everyone of you! And all the love that you have shown us and continue to show us!”

There is no recipe tonight…. just a simple request.
I cannot tell you how much all of the love and support that you gave to Mike and me…after I told you about his illness… meant to me. While I’m not surprised, because over these last few months, I’ve come to know that there are so many, many good people in this world…I am deeply touched by the kindness that you showed to the both of us.
I know that many of you are moms too, so I know you feel what I feel. I would give my son anything that would make him happy (within reason…I’m not buying him that $30K truck that he wants!).
Like I told you, we are blessed. Michael has the disease, but it’s manageable. He can live a long life.
Last night, I was watching the news…and there was a short segment about a little boy in Foxboro, Massachusetts who has inoperable brain cancer. My heart went out to his parents and his family.
Little Danny Nickerson has one simple request. This coming Friday, July 25th, he will turn 6 years old. His request? To receive birthday cards.
That’s all he wants.
And that’s what his mom is doing for him.
Requesting birthday cards for her little boy, because he gets lonely.
I thought…How easy is that? I can send him a birthday card. But then I thought… what if I posted this…and maybe helped to get him a few more cards?
So my request is simple.. I wish that you might consider this beautiful little boy, and help to make his wish come true by sending him a birthday card.
It doesn’t matter if it doesn’t make it there by Friday…I’m sure he would be delighted if he continued to receive them for the next few weeks!
Here is the address:
P.O. Box 212
Foxboro, MA 02035
Life is good…. but….Sometimes life is hard…but with the love and support from others…it might make it a little more manageable.
Thank you so much for your kindness…and your consideration.
My prayers and love go out to Danny and his family.
And my prayers and love go out to you.
You can find the request on WGRZ Channel 2’s Facebook Page (Buffalo, NY).
