A 9-year old boy with cancer was told by his doctors that he has less than a month left to live and now he's hoping to receive Christmas cards from all around the world.

The young boy is named Jacob Thompson and he lives in Portland, Maine.  He is suffering from Neuroblastoma and his doctors don't believe he'll live through the end of the year.  Since he might not make it to Christmas, his family is celebrating early and are asking anyone willing, to send Jacob a Christmas card early, if you can.

Jacobs parents said that their young hero has received a few cards since Halloween and that opening those cards was like opening presents to him and each brightened his day.  Just as an FYI, Jacob loves Penquins!

If you'd like to send a Christmas card to Jacob here is his mailing info:

Jacob Thompson, C/O Maine Medical Center, 22 Bramhall Street, Portland, Maine, 04102, USA.

We are sharing this story in the hopes that someone in each county in Wyoming will send this youngster a Christmas card and help to brighten his final days.  Thank you!
