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.”
