Foxborough Boy With Cancer Wants Cards For His 6th Birthday




FOXBOROUGH, Mass. It’s not the cake, presents or party that gets Danny Nickerson excited for his sixth birthday on July 25 – it’s the cards. The Foxborough boy diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer last fall has had to stop going to kindergarten, his family tells ABC News. But when he’s feeling lonely, nothing cheers him up like a card with his name on it.“He can recognize his name now,” mom Carley Nickerson told ABC News. “When he saw his name on the package from magical fairies on Easter, he was so happy.”Danny Nickerson underwent 33 radiation treatments after his October diagnosis and he’s now getting chemo therapy every two weeks, according to ABC. His doctors say children with his type of cancer rarely live longer than 18 months. Danny Nickerson has received more than 40 letters so far, his mother says.“I gave him the key to the P.O. box,” she told ABC News. “He was so excited when he opened it.” Cards can be mailed to Danny Nickerson, P.O. Box 212, Foxborough, MA, 02035.

40 Letters? That’s it so far? When did this story air? I almost didn’t want to post this story because I feel like Stoolies will break the post office. I mean sending Danny Nickerson a birthday card is the biggest no brainer in the history of earth. You got to mail that shit today though. His birthday is in 4 days. So here is my question for all the Stoolie suckers out there who have kids. What’s hot in the streets for 6 year olds nowadays? Is Scooby Doo too scary for 6 year olds? I did some quick research and it appears Arthur is still the man? Could that be possible? I just don’t want to send Danny a dickhead card. I want to be the cool hip smut peddling uncle. So what should I be looking for here? Lil help.

And again here is his address. Send your card today.
