Cards For Dalton

13 Dec

I came across something on my Twitter feed this morning…

Cards for Dalton

and did a little googling and found a Facebook page as well.

This little 9-year-old boy, Dalton Dingus, has Cystic Fibrosis and has a short life expectancy.  As a matter of fact, all he asked for this Christmas, after being sent home with all medical supplies to rest comfortably, was to break the world record for number of received Christmas Cards.  Even though he passed his goal of 35,000 he wants to make sure that his numbers stick around for a while (last count was 37,000).

This is a picture (from this source) from his living room:
