Thousands Of Strangers Are Helping This Young Cancer Patient Celebrate His Last Christmas

Jacob was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma when he was 5. According to the American Cancer Society, only half of children diagnosed with the disease reach the five-year survival mark.


After Jacob was admitted to the Barbara Bush Children's Hospital on October 11, doctors discovered that the neuroblastoma had spread to his head and was incurable, according to a GoFundMe page set up by his mother. The doctors told his family in he probably only had a month to live.

    So they're celebrating Christmas early this year, and Jacob wants people to celebrate with him by sending him cards. Jacob asked for cards from anyone around the world who wanted to share his Christmas spirit.

    He's been receiving cards from people all over the country, including big-name stars Rob Lowe, Anna Kendrick, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    If you're interested in sending cards, address them to:

    Ernie Andrus, now in his 90's, is running cross-country to raise money in order to put the LST 325, the ship he served on in the Navy during WWII, back on the beach in Normandy where it supported the D-Day invasion on June 6, 1944.

    This LST 325 is the only LST ship left (out of 1,051 made) that has been fully restored and still operational.
