Many Birthday Cards Mailed to Sick Boy

sick boyFOXBORO, Mass. (CNN) — There was a big birthday-eve party on Thursday for little Danny Nickerson, who’s battling cancer.

The boy got more mail delivered to his hometown post office than all of Foxboro, Massachusetts combined.

Boxes and boxes full of birthday cards, all for the boy with the rare inoperable brain tumor who turns 6 on Friday.

His mom said he had just one item on his birthday wish list.

“When we said what do you want for your birthday, he said mail, I want mail. So he got mail,” said Carley Nickerson, Danny’s mom.

An army of friends and relatives have spent days shuttling the cards to his home.

Letters have been mailed from Aruba, Texas and even from a squadron of Marines from Afghanistan.

In all, there have been about 50,000 letters received so far, with much more mail on the way.
