Mrs. Martin’s Class Sends Card/Bear to Cancer Patient

posted Nov 14, 2017, 7:34 AM by Acsd Webmgr

Jacob Thompson of Portland, Maine, has Stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma, and doctors told his family in early October he probably only had a month to live.  So, 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,” said Jacob's father.  “He was excited to see what people had to say and it just brightened his day.”  Jacob also loves Minecraft, Star Wars and penguins.  After hearing about Jacob's wish, Mrs. Martin's students signed a Christmas card and mailed a small, soft stuffed animal penguin to Jacob on Monday, November 13th.
