NHS collects cards for 9-year-old with cystic fibrosis

NHS+collects+cards+for+9-year-old+with+cystic+fibrosis+

If one were to look onto a 9-year-old’s Christmas list, the wishes would most likely consist of Hot Wheels, Pokemon Cards and a Nintendo 3DS.

That’s not the case for 9-year-old Dalton Dingus, who is suffering from cystic fibrosis and is part of the Make a Wish foundation.

Dalton’s wish is to break the record for receiving the most Christmas cards, ever.

Lindsey Paradis, president of The National Honors Society, heard about Dalton through a friend on Facebook and brought the idea to collect Christmas cards to NHS Advisor, Jessica Brehaut.

They will be collecting cards in room B101 until Thursday Dec. 21.

Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening disease that is caused by a buildup of mucus in the lungs, digestive tract and other areas of the body.

“It’s really nice this time of year to help him set the record,” says Paradis, “we want the record to be unbreakable.”

About the Contributor
Alexis Gamache, Editor-in-Chief
Large and in charge, senior Alexis Gamache is top dog, seeing as she’s now the Editor-In-Chief of the The Cub. Before graduating in June, Alexis hopes to leave her footprint on LHS and is planning big things for the newspaper. She basically  lives at her dance studio, taking six classes a week and teaching on Friday nights. However, when she is not dancing she’s busy being a “scoopoligist” at the Friendly’s in Ludlow (she also has big plans to get out of that job as soon as possible). Alexis gets excited when country music is blasting through her radio in her 1993 Chevy Trailblazer, also referred to as Brandy. She could sit outside for hours and just take in the good weather, “it’s the little things in life” she enjoys. Her bright, bubbly personality is something you can’t ignore. You’ll recognize the big smile and her curly brown hair, which Alexis swears is a blessing in disguise. Although she’s still undecided on her goals, education is what she is leaning towards. Get to know her, you’ll regret you didn’t.
