A boy and his family are wishing for cards from people around the world in honor of his favorite holiday of Christmas.

Jacob Thompson, 9, is fighting cancer at the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine.

When doctors told his mother he had a month to live, Jacob’s family began asking people on Facebook to send him cards so he can celebrate his last Christmas early.

Jacob , who is is fighting stage 4 neuroblastoma, will be celebrating a two-day Christmas holiday with his family at the hospital this November.


In early October, Jacob entered hospice care.


If you’d like to send a card to Jacob, please mail to:


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