A 2-year-old Ohio boy suffering from inoperable brain cancer probably won’t live to see Christmas. But his family decided to bring the holidays to him, decorating their home with lights, candy canes and polar bears, WCPO reported.
Oncologists in Cincinnati told the parents of Brody Allen in August that the toddler had less than two months to live. What the boy’s doctor originally thought was an ear infection in May was diagnosed as something much worse, as specialists discovered that Brody was born with an aggressive brain cancer that grew into four untreatable tumors, the television station reported.
“In his mind it is just Christmas,” McKenzie Allen, 21, Brody’s sister, told The New York Times. “He woke up one day and the Christmas tree was out. He doesn’t know it isn’t really Christmas. He is just enjoying it.”
“We do Christmas big,” Brody’s father, Todd Allen, told WCPO. “For us, it’s about family time and those memories and traditions that you can’t ever get back.”
