A boy from Biddeford who's battling brain cancer is hoping folks will send him Halloween cards, to help celebrate his favorite holiday.

Brock Chadwick is only seven years old, an age where kids should be planning what to wear for trick or treating and looking forward to a bag full of candy. But, for this little guy, life is about fighting a rare form of brain cancer. He's already had surgery for multiple brain tumors and abnormal spinal tissue. But, after he was discharged from the hospital, his family learned the cancer was back.

His Mom is looking for ways to lift Brock's spirits and, since Halloween is his favorite holiday, is asking that folks send him Halloween cards. She told WGME-TV that Brock has already received about 30 cards and a couple of packages that have not only brought smiles, but also worked to distract him from real life for a few moments.

Halloween cards can be sent to :

  • Brock Chadwick
  • 11 McKenney Drive
  • Biddeford, ME 04005
