Dear Ollie,

I found this story on Our Daily Obsessions blog and it kind of broke my heart.

You see, Oliver is a 10 year old boy diagnosed with DIPG {Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma} also known as pediatric brain stem caner in 2009. This Christmas will be his last, unless Jesus grants him a miracle. Luckily Ollie is able to be home to spend this last holiday with the ones who love him the most.

You can read more about this sweet boy on the blog his family set up :

Ollie loves receiving cards, a few bloggers got together from all over the states and decided to send him a Christmas card. I am participating because my heart breaks for this family just knowing how little time he has, he must be scared and sad. Lets make him feel loved and let him know we are praying for him and his family to have the best Christmas of all. {Holy run on sentence} I am not going to ask you to donate {though there is an option to do so on his blog, to help with medical expenses and such} I am just asking you to write one extra Christmas card this year, it will cost you but one card, envelope and stamp.

Mail your card to:
Oliver Palmer
417 Oaklawn Ave.
Waterloo, IA 50701

This is what this season is about, spreading the holiday cheer and doing what Christ would do.
