I came across the story over the weekend and I can't stop thinking about it...

Danny Nickerson is a five year old boy with an inoperable brain tumor... He had to stop going to kindergarten to receive treatments... He can recognize his name and when he received a package for Easter he got really excited...

For his sixth birthday he wants a box full of birthday cards... As a father of a nine year old I can't help but to personalize the story... and while most kids ask for bigger gifts each year... Danny just wants some birthday cards...

His mother, Carley Nickerson set up a P.O. Box address for her son and started asking people online to send cards for his birthday which is on July 25th... Today I will send a stack of cards that my son and I pick out at the store... and I will draw a few with my son to send to Danny...

If you would like to add to the smile Danny will have on his face on his birthday here is the info...
