A 10-year-old Ohio girl suffering an aggressive brain cancer is hoping to receive lots and lots of Christmas cards this holiday season, and people all across the country are helping her wish come true.
FOX 8's own junior reporter Oliviah Hall has one big wish this holiday season: To get as many Christmas cards as her Ashtabula home can hold.
Thanks to the big hearts in Northeast Ohio, word spread across the country as thousands of cards poured in.
"I just think it's nice to know people love you when you're going through all this," Oliviah Hall said.
Oliviah was diagnosed last year with Glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer, and told FOX 8 the upcoming holiday means a lot to her.
"Christmas is a very special time for me because when I was in the hospital, we celebrated Christmas a lot," Oliviah said.
Her home is filled with thousands of cards, including a big one filled with pages of well wishes from her friends at FOX 8 News.
"I'd say we probably have close to 3,000 letters, between the letters and the boxes and more on the way," said Bryan Brown, Oliviah's dad.
That’s a lot of Christmas well wishes, but Oliviah would love to see them continue coming.
