9-yr-old cancer patient asks for cards to celebrate Christmas 'early'

>Jacob has been fighting Neuroblastoma, cancer that forms in nerve cells early on, since he was diagnosed at age 5. It has spread to his head and hip, and treatment was deemed unsuccessful. Since Jacob is bed-ridden and has limited time left with his loved ones, they are bringing Christmas to him next weekend. On the big day, his room will transform into a winter wonderland — snow, sparkling tree and all (even Santa). But Jacob has one request: cards from anyone "inspired to reach out" to help bring the Christmas cheer.

The address to send to:
Jacob Thompson
C/O Maine Medical Center
22 Bramhall St
Portland, ME 04102

Let's do it /pol/
