Boy with rare condition has special Christmas request


While most 8-year-old boys write Santa asking for video games and bicycles, one Indianapolis boy’s wish is more simple.

Jack, who suffers from a rare genetic disorder causing him to have seizures and other health problems, wants enough Christmas cards to cover the walls of his room!

Jack was born with Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, a genetic disorder caused by a deletion of material within the fourth chromosome. The disorder causes Jack to frequently have seizures as well as other medical issues.

If you would like to send Jack a card for Christmas, please mail it to:
