Maine Boy With Cancer Gets Hundreds Of Halloween Cards/Gifts From All Over World
A 7-year-old boy from Biddeford, Maine made a request that has been heard around the world. Brock Chadwick reportedly has a rare form of brain cancer called glioblastoma. He had brain surgery to remove a tumor in his brain earlier this year, but his mother says a recent MRI has found more tumors, according to the Huffington Post. He asked for Halloween cards this year, so his great-aunt posted his request on Facebook. She even came up with a great name -- Brocktoberfest. It went viral, and hundreds of people from all over the world have been sending cards, candy and other gifts.
He's been getting about a hundred packages in the mail every day, according to his family.
Halloween is still over two weeks away, so let's send him some more cards. Here's his address:
11 McKenney Drive
Biddeford, Maine 04005
