Foxborough boy receives 100,000 birthday cards

Posted: Updated:

A Foxborough boy with an inoperable brain tumor who has become an Internet celebrity turned 6 on Friday.

Danny Nickerson's sole birthday wish was to receive a lot of cards -- and did he. His wish spread by social media, and at last count the Foxborough post office said more than 100,000 cards were sent.

Two Massachusetts state troopers from the Mounted Unit made a surprise visit to Danny on Thursday and brought along two horses.

The Mounted Unit presented Danny with his own campaign cover, a horseshoe for good luck and a birthday card.

Danny was diagnosed with DIPG, a rare tumor of the brainstem, in October.

Cards can be sent to Daniel Nickerson, P.O. Box 212, Foxboro, MA 02035.
