Sick Teen's One Wish For Christmas Is A Letter From You, And You
14-year-old Lucas Hoelscher is living with spinal muscular atrophy type I, which has rendered his entire body motionless. He can only communicate by making movements with his eyes. Despite his illness, Lucas finds enjoyment in reading letters he receives in the mail from both friends and strangers.
When he was 10, doctors said he would not survive the next few months. Now, at 14, he's keeping that thought out of his mind, and making one request: send him mail. If you'd like to spread some holiday cheer to a very brave young boy, send Lucas a letter to this mailing address: 3092 Wyandot Drive, Springfield, Ohio 45502.
