This is a strong emotionally fact: Jacob Thompson, a boy 9-year-old, who was diagnosed with stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma in February 2014 when he was just 5 years old, will have his last Christmas on the next weekend because he have not more life time.
The rare cancer has spread to his hip and head. Treatment has so far been unsuccessful. He may not live to see the end of the year. His hospital room will be decorated with a tree and lights, some fake snow and, of course, Santa Claus will be there. He is a boy who understand his situation and he wants now a simply elementary thing: to be loved by people from the world.

“He loves cards from all people. He's also a typical 9-year-old boy. He wants iTunes cards," his father Roger Guay said. "He plays this game Sim City where he builds an entire city and he can use his iTunes cards to buy gems, which helps the process move a little faster." What he really wants and loves is homemade Christmas cards. If any toys get sent his way they will be shared with all of the kids who are at the Barbara Bush Children's Hospital at Maine Medical Center. The family is inviting anyone who is interested to send homemade cards to Jacob. Many people have already jumped at the chance to bring Jacob a smile. you can address it to:
