A 5-year-old boy with an inoperable brain tumor has one wish for his birthday: a box full of birthday cards with his name on them.
Danny Nickerson, from Foxboro, Massachusetts, was diagnosed with an inoperable and chemotherapy-resistant tumor this past October. He has stopped going to kindergarten during therapy, and gets lonely, according to his family.
"He can recognize his name now," the boy’s mother Carley Nickerson told ABC News. "When he saw his name on the package from magical fairies on Easter, he was so happy."
Nickerson says personalized cards make Danny happy, and has opened a P.O. box to collect letters from well-wishers.
Doctors say less than 10% of children diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, like Danny, live beyond 18 months.
"I don’t really believe in that," Nickerson says. "He is doing great. Every day is a blessing for us."
Danny has received about 40 letters so far, and his birthday is on July 25th.
Letters can be sent to:
Danny Nickerson P.O. Box 212 Foxboro, MA 02035

C’mon Tumblr…let’s make this kid smile for a long, long time to come. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to the corner store for a stamp.

I don’t normally repost this stuff but I just sent him a card. If you go to treat.com (greeting card website run by shutterfly.com) and use the code CARD4DANNY at checkout, all you have to pay is tax and postage; card is free!! You can make really nice personalized cards and if you order by tomorrow it should get to him in time for his birthday <3

Bold’d because that’s handy and I didn’t even know about treat.com

TITP POSTED SOMETHING WITH A QUOTE FROM THE ONION#doneThe fact that I can’t tell if this is a troll submission or someone actually agreeing with that quote says a lot about their blog

Once again, TiTP demonstrates that only the truly idiotic, worthless and laziest people buy into HAES and fat acceptance by illustrating their own lack of intellect and worth themselves.

m0destsonyah asked:

I agree with your "Fat does not equal unhealthy" post, but what if you are well function in metabolic even though you're fat. However, wouldn't it also be a risk for bones to be having an excessive amount of body fat? If this is an irrelevant question or misinterpreted, I apologize in advance.

thisisthinprivilege answered:

There’s no evidence of it, it’s just a fucking assumption by fatphobic assholes. You can tell this by the simple fact that they never harass bodybuilders about how bad it is for their bones, even though, say, Dwayne Johnson is much heavier than most fat people.

I seriously suggest you go read up on these things, if you genuinely care. We have links all over this blog to studies and articles in actual journals.

Here’s a study with a sizeable sample indicating that fat has a protective factor for bones in post menopausal women. At least, I’m pretty sure that’s what it says, it can be hard to parse the really technical language in these things.

> reads one paragraph of an abstract

> comments on the “technical language” to excuse complete and utter disregard for the point of the article

The article, in very untechnical terms, clearly states that one should not choose between gaining weight and drinking milk. Probably because some inane fat activist would rather eat themselves into a coma than have 3 servings of dairy, in the guise of health, which is further implicated by the fact that women who seemed to have the lowest dairy intake also had higher BMIs.

Of course, it is difficult to parse the really technical language in these things when you read more than a paragraph.
