 The holidays are a good time of year for giving and sharing with those you love and your community. If you're looking for a special way to observe the holidays this year, you can help a little boy in need.



 


Nathan Norman, a 6-year-old-child from Rustburg, Va., is living with terminal cancer. According to Nathan's website that's updated by his parents, his cancer started in January 2009 when he was only one years old as brain cancer, but has progressed and he now has a tumor in his spine. He's had multiple surgeries and chemotherapy sessions, but with no success.


 


Nathan has a special wish this Christmas: to receive Christmas cards from police officers, firefighters, and EMS personnel from all over the country.


 


Show your support by sending Christmas cards to:


Nathan Norman


81 Dunivan Drive


Rustburg, VA 24588


 


You can also visit Nathan's Christmas Facebook page for more information.

Wow... this tears at my heart strings.  A boy at his age only wanting cards from the police, fire, and rescue.... bless his sweet little heart.  I pray for a miracle that he beats his cancer.  God bless this boy.
