Community Comes Together To Make Boy's Christmas Special

WEST JEFFERSON, Ohio People from across the community were planning to make the holiday season special for a 7-year-old boy who is battling terminal brain cancer.

Doctors told Nathan Elfrink's parents that this Christmas would be his last, 10TV's Lindsey Seavert reported.

When the community realized that Nate reached his final days, they wanted every day to be a gift. Now the gifts are coming from across Ohio, the U.S. and the world.

On Monday, Nathan received 16 cards. Then, on Tuesday, he received 45 cards. On Wednesday, family members said that their mailbox was stuffed full of cards.

The letters came from strangers, stamped from dozens of states.

On Friday, Nate could not awaken to see all the presents that arrived in the mail.
