Wish list

Two-year-old Kaydence Weaver is ready to count to 500 — the number of Christmas cards she hopes to receive this year.

The Noblesville, IN, toddler was diagnosed in July with a cancer that affects her soft tissue and is undergoing medical treatments, the TV newsmagazine “Inside Edition” reported recently.

To make Kaydence feel better, her aunt, Misty Deavers, told her about another sick child who received get well cards.

Kaydence then declared she wanted exactly 500 Christmas cards. Her older sister, Salem, wants them, too.

“Of course, I couldn’t say no,” Deavers said. “I couldn’t because I wanted to see them happy.”

Deavers has shared her nieces’ request on social media and hopes Kaydence gets her wish before beginning her next phase of cancer treatment.

“As long as they have something that I can read to them, and something that they can open up and know that they have something there, whatever they get, I know they’ll be happy,” she told WXIN-TV.

The news organizations have published the address for people who wish to send cards: Misty Deavers, c/o Kaydence and Salem, PO Box 615, Noblesville, IN 46061.
