Danny Nickerson has inoperable cancer. All he wanted for his 6th birthday this year was birthday cards.

Word spread on social media and the response was overwhelming. So far, Danny has received 100,000 cards.



The family has been tracking the influx of packages on its Facebook page Danny's Warriors.

Todays total rough count was a little over 8500 cards and 900 packages!!! We filled the U-Haul completely up! And then filled 3 cars too! the family posted on Facebook this week. We are in awe of all of this, we are speechless and dont have enough words to explain how thankful we are for everyone of you! And all the love that you have shown us and continue to show us!

People overwhelmingly sent well wishes to the address, PO Box 212 Foxboro, MA 02035, with messages of support and hope.
