A very special little boy in Kentucky needs your help to make his biggest wish come true.
Nine-year-old Dalton Dingus lives in Salyersville. Dalton has cystic fibrosis and even though he is very sick, it's not keeping him from dreaming big.
Dalton wants to get 25,000 Christmas cards. Earlier this week, the Salyersville Independent, a local newspaper, reported that Dalton had already received more than 10,000 cards from around the world.
Dalton's family told the newspaper that receiving the cards gives him something to look forward to while he is struggling with the illness. The Make-a-Wish Foundation delivered a club house for Dalton, complete with a Playstation 3, recliner and a flat screen television.
Dalton was named grand marshal of the Salyersville Hometown Christmas Celebration Parade, but was unable to attend this past Saturday. His mom told the newspaper that he had attended a party earlier that day and was too tired.
To help Dalton's wish come true, you can send cards to the following address:
HC 62 Box 1249
Salyersville, KY 41465
