Boy who got thousands of Christmas cards dies

The 9-year-old boy whose wish for Christmas cards went viral died on Sunday, one week after he was able to enjoy a special celebration of his favorite holiday.

"Each and every person who sent Jacob a Christmas card, a gift, a Facebook message or video, or a prayer made a difference in the final days of his life, " his family wrote on a Facebook page managed by his aunt, Sonya Artinyan. His family's request resulted in Christmas cards for Jacob being sent to the hospital from all over the world.

His family announced on Facebook that he passed away less than four years after being diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma that spread to his head and hip. Cards poured in from around the world.

"So when I saw this, as a parent, I thought we really are blessed when we have healthy children", Taylor said, "and maybe it would be a nice thing at Thanksgiving time to do this resolution so that we can send it up to him (to) let him know the town of Cranbury ... was thinking of him and his family at this time".

She said that she "will do everything to ensure that this country is well-led through these hard weeks". However, she said the SPD would use the talks with Steinmeier to try to find future solutions.

On November 19th, Michelle posted on a Facebook page called Jacob's Journey, that Jacobs life had "peacefully" come to an end.

Jacob had some celebrity admirers, too, like Arnold Schwarzenegger, who made him a card, and members of the University of ME hockey team and various local law enforcement organisations, who visited him in the hospital. "Thank you for taking the time, and taking an interest in our sweet boy's journey". The family said Thompson loved penguins and they had adopted an emperor penguin chick on behalf of their son through the World Wildlife Fund. His family asks people who would like to make a donation in his honor to do so to Operation Gratitude, a penguin rescue group or pay it forward in the community.

"And most importantly, always do not forget to #LiveLikeAPenguin for Jacob", the family said.
