Patriots sing happy birthday for kid with cancer

The Patriots and first responders came together to make a very special birthday surprise for Danny Nickerson, a six-year old with an inoperable brain tumor.

Danny Nickerson made headlines this week when he told his mom that all he wanted for his sixth birthday was a box of birthday cards. Nickerson, a Foxborough, Ma., boy who has a rare inoperable brain tumor, loves to get mail, so his mom took to social media to spread the word. Over the weekend his neighbors, the New England Patriots, gave Danny another birthday surprise.

On Friday, the entire team signed a card for Danny and presented it to him at Patriots practice. On Saturday, the team gathered to sing Happy Birthday to Danny.

The event was arranged by local police and firemen.

The Patriots official site has video too.
