It's unimaginable to accept losing a child. We ask, why wasn't it me instead? Life is too short as it is. That's why when we hear of a real-life child's last wish, our hearts are unified. Such is the case with little Danny Nickerson. To look at his blue eyes and sandy brown buzz cut, no one would detect that this 5-year-old boy was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer.

This little trooper has been through 33 rounds of aggressive radiation treatment in the last six months and doctors say chances are very dim of his living more than 18 months.

When asked, Danny said he'd like to receive birthday cards because he likes to open them to see the cards. Let's all make it a commitment to sent Danny a birthday card for this Saturday, July 26. Don't worry that it might arrive late. Just know you'll make him very happy just for thinking of him.

Here's Danny's address:

Danny Nickerson
P.O. Box 212
Foxboro, MA 02035
