9-year-old with Cancer Wants Cards for his last Christmas

Nine-year-old Jacob Thompson has Stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma, and doctors told his family in early October he probably only had a month to live.

Through the devastating news, the family has decided they'll celebrate Christmas early this year...and Jacob wants people to celebrate with him by sending him cards.

"He got some cards from this Halloween, and he opened up and saw them and it was like getting a gift. He read it to us and had a big smile his face and his nose scrunched," Jacob's father, Roger Guay, told CNN in a phone interview. "He was excited to see what people had to say and it just brightened his day."

Cards can be sent to Jacob here:
