Family asks for birthday cards for 2-year-old boy fighting cancer

A boy with down syndrome fighting leukemia is turning 3 on June 14, and his mom is trying to get cards sent to him for his birthday as a surprise.

Freddie, 2, was diagnosed with B cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on January 8, 2019. For over a month, the young toddler has been undergoing chemotherapy and steroid treatments.  Doctors predict Freddie treatment will last approximately three years.


If you’d like to send him a card, you can mail it to 7B Children’s Hospital MUSC, 165 Ashley Avenue PO Box 250329, Charleston, SC 29425.
