Terminally Ill Boy Granted Wish

Jacob Thompson is a 9-year-old little boy battling stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma, a cancer formed in nerve cells. His cancer has recently spread, and doctors predict he has about one more month to live. Jacob loves Christmas and has one wish, to celebrate it early.


Strangers have sent him 14,000 Christmas cards and more are on the way! He has also received several penguin-themed gifts, which is his favorite animal. The hospital and his family are planning on transforming his hospital room into a winter wonderland with Christmas decorations and a visit from Santa!


If you would like to send Jacob a card, here's the address:
