After nine-year-old Jacob Thompson was hospitalized in October after a four-year battle with Stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma, doctors told his family that he likely had just one month to live.
In response, his parents have decided to have their Christmas celebration early this year, and Jacob wants people to celebrate along with him by sending Christmas cards.
In the five days since Jacob made his Christmas wish, the family has received over 100 cards from onlookers and well-wishers from around the world, even Antarctica, just in time for the family to celebrate Christmas at the beginning of November. The celebration will include snow, a tree and, of course, Santa Claus, CNN reports.
