9-year-old Jacob Thomas has been diagnosed with stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma a form of cancer since the age of 5. This form of aggressive childhood cancer has spread all through his body and now has reached his head, which means the poor child has to remain in the hospital indefinitely.
Christmas is a seasonal holiday that you would either love or hate and as for Jacob he loves the Christmas period. Unfortunately, the doctors have told Jacob and his family that he may not survive until Christmas.
So, the Thomas family have decided to bring Christmas early for Jacob at the hospital and have been receiving the help from nurses and doctors too. Everyone has been decorating his room and bed and have asked Santa to come sooner to entertain Jacob and doing extra bits and bobs to make his last Christmas special.
During times like this, it shows that there is always light during the darkest periods and the best gift is love and support. Best of luck to Jacob and his family.
