Neighborhood Celebrates Christmas Early for Terminally Ill Toddler

Brody Allen was a normal toddler from the suburbs of Cincinnati until he had a minor fall. When his parents took him to the hospital, they learned he was suffering from ETMR tumors, a rare form of cancer in children. After spending almost 100 days in the hospital, he was discharged and his parents were told he only had two months to live.

His parents took him home and decided that they'd make every single day count while they could. That meant celebrating their favorite holiday, Christmas, just a little bit early. The Allen family began decorating their yard with festive lights and characters, catching the attention of their neighbors. 

When their neighbors heard the reason why, they decided to join in and put up their own decorations! But they didn't stop there! They sent him Christmas cards to get him into the holiday spirit and started a GoFundMe page for the family. Brody's dad, a truck driver, has not been to work since his child was diagnosed. The town has even planned a superhero-themed Christmas parade for the boy on September 23rd!

Brody's family has even created a Facebook page called "Team Brody", where people from all over the world are sharing their own messages of support for the toddler! Some are even sharing photos of their own Christmas decorations!
