9-year-old With Terminal Cancer Asks for Christmas Cards So He Can Celebrate Early

Michelle Thompson Simard says her son Jacob was admitted last month to Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital in Portland, Maine, “for the last time.”

Doctors said the 9-year-old’s Stage 4 neuroblastoma spread throughout his head, and his hip is “peppered by tumors,” according to a GoFundMe page created by Simard.

She added: “It is expected Jacob may pass away within the month.”

So Simard hopes to celebrate what she expects will be Jacob’s last Christmas a bit early. Jacob is asking for cards to be sent to his hospital room, which will be transformed into a “winter wonderland,” she told

“Jacob loves the holiday season and we want him to know that Christmas wishes come true and that there are good people who care all around the world,” Simard told the publication.

It wasn’t long before the first Christmas cards arrived.

Merry Christmas, Jacob!
