According to the article link shared by Celebrity Stylist Ilaria Urbinati on Twitter late Tuesday night, Danny Nickerson (right) is not quite six years old and has inoperable brain cancer. His 6th birthday is this Friday, July 25. Please consider sending him a birthday card.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
“Danny Nickerson is five years old and excited to be turning six this Friday, July 25th.
This past October, Danny was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor: one that is particularly resistant to treatment. Fewer than 10% of kids diagnosed with this type of tumor live beyond 18 months after diagnosis.”
“The only thing Danny wants for his birthday is more mail. So let’s send him some for his birthday. He also likes Lego and Super Mario, but he really just wants cards and letters.
Send him a card at the address below.
P.O. Box 212
Foxboro, MA, 02035
Even if you don’t send a card, please share this with your friends. We hope other sites pick this up. We’d like to see Danny’s mailbox filled with cards and letters (and maybe some Lego.)
Happy birthday, Danny. We hope you’ll see many more.”

Thanks again to Ilaria Urbinati who tweeted this link!
My thoughts and prayers are with Danny and his family. I’m sending my card to Danny in the morning mail. I hope that it reaches Danny in time for his birthday. Hugs!
P.S. The preferred postal spelling of the name of the town is correct in the address above as “Foxboro”, though “Foxborough” is used as an alternative spelling per wiki.
