Nine-year-old Sebastian Bradley has terminal brain cancer.
It’s just devastating.
The Williamsville family, while still coming to terms with this horrible realization, is hoping to make what they expect will be Sebastian’s last Christmas, the best one ever. They’re hoping that people from all over will send Christmas cards to the little boy.
They’re also hoping to complete a short but very sweet bucket list that Sebastian has come up with.
The first thing on the list is going Lego Land in Florida. Great news – they are leaving on Friday for the trip.
Sebastian also wants to go fishing.
And sledding – so fingers crossed for plenty of snow.
And Sebastian very much wants to take a trip to Washington D.C. He loves Martin Luther King, Jr. and has always wanted to stand on the same place MLK gave his famous ‘I Have a Dream’ speech. (The steps of the Lincoln Memorial).
Sebastian had been receiving treatments for his cancer, but recent tests showed that his tumor has doubled in size and the family has made the decision to stop chemotherapy. Now, they are focused on enjoying their time together and making Sebastian feel nothing but love. They want make lots of memories together.
Jenny Kaltman, a friend of the family tells me this outpouring of love means a great deal to the family, “It means the world to them that friends, family, and people they don’t even know are thinking about them. No one can imagine what they are going through but having the love and support of everyone helps. #SebastianStrong”
