Let’s help make this happen!!
A 9-year-old boy with a rare type of cancerous tumor wants you and everyone you know to send him Christmas cards!
Jacob Thompson has stage 4 neuroblastoma and according to his mom, “Jacob may pass away within the month.” Because Jacob may not live to see Christmas this year, his amazing family is asking everyone from around the world to send Jacob Christmas cards and help him celebrate the holiday a little bit early.
Jacob’s mom, Michelle Thompson Simard, told Good Housekeeping, “Jacob loves the holiday season and we want him to know that Christmas wishes come true and that there are good people who care all around the world.”
Jacob’s story has gone viral and his only special request is that he would love to get homemade Christmas cards so he can celebrate the holiday one last time. Celebrities like Anna Kendrick and Rob Lowe have already sent Jacob a card and he would love one from you too! You can send Jacob a card to:
C/O Maine Medical Center
22 Bramhall Street
Portland, ME 04102
The family also set up a GoFundMe page so they can afford his funeral costs.
