Little boy with cancer has one Christmas wish: cards

Posted: Updated:

Sometimes, the simplest of things can warm someone's heart.

Five-year-old Hayden Drake has been battling Leukemia and the effects of chemo and radiation treatments.

For Christmas, he has one simple wish: to get lots of cards sent to him in North Carolina.

His mom says he can't wait to check the mailbox every day.

"Like yesterday he got 5 cards in the mail and he does this little happy dance and he was doing the happy dance the whole time he was reading the cards."


Hayden is in remission, but will still need treatment for the next few years.


If you'd like to send Hayden a Christmas card, the NBC affiliate in Greenville, North Carolina lists this as his address:

Hayden Drake
1637 Lumbuck Road
Greenville, NC 27858
