FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — A Foxborough boy with an inoperable brain tumor is celebrating his sixth birthday in style after an outpouring of support, much of it coming from strangers around the world.

Tens of thousands of birthday cards and packages began streaming in after appeals were posted on social media to help make the boy’s birthday extra special.

The town’s postmaster says Danny Nickerson got more mail on Friday than the entire rest of the town combined.

And there was more.

On Saturday, first responders from around the region helped Danny celebrate a birthday party at Gillette Stadium, where he attended a practice of the New England Patriots and even got to meet some of the players.
