Adelantan Navidad para un niño con cáncer terminal

Todo el pueblo se organizó para que él viviera su última Navidad

A Brody Allen le quedan solo dos meses de vida, por eso su familia ha decidido hacer de sus días, los más felices, no importa si tiene que organizar a todo el pueblo para lograrlo.

Así es como en Colerain Township, Cincinnati, toda la población adelantó la Navidad para darle la última ilusión al pequeño.

Con solo dos años, Brody padece un tipo de cáncer muy extraño que acorta su vida a tan solo dos meses más. A él no le queda mucho tiempo, por eso todo el pueblo adornó su casa y organizó un desfile navideño en septiembre.

La idea inició luego de que sus papás solicitaran en Facebook, adornos navideños pues aún no es temporada. Fue ahí cuando el pueblo se unió.

"Él no sabe que aún no es Navidad, simplemente lo disfruta", dijo su hermana a una entrevista. "Es muy difícil pero amo ver esa alegría en su mirada", dijo su madre.

Sin duda un momento no solo inolvidable para el pequeño sino para su familia quienes nunca dejarán de estar agradecidos por tanto amor que recibieron de su familia.

I spent time with 2-year-old Brody Allen the other night. Five weeks ago, Brody Allen’s parents were told that their toddler son’s rare form of brain cancer meant he had two months to live. The boy’s family realized that he probably wouldn’t be able to enjoy one more Christmas. So they decided to celebrate early, putting up a tree and decorations, and their Ohio neighborhood followed suit. “In his mind it is just Christmas,” said McKenzie Allen, 21, Brody’s sister. “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.” The family started decorating their house, and soon most of their neighbors on the street started putting decorations out. Tons of decorations were donated to the family, and they’ve been receiving hundreds of Christmas cards from all around the world wishing Brody a Merry Christmas. “When Brody saw it, he couldn’t believe it.” The town is planning a Christmas parade for him a few weeks. Brody has good days and bad days, but with these efforts, he has a lot of good moments. “It’s emotional because I know this will be his last” Christmas, said Brody’s mother, Shilo Allen, 41. “It is really hard, but I love seeing the joy in his eyes,” she said. “We did it to make him happy.” I felt so, so honored to be able to tell this story and meet Brody. It was an assignment that had me sobbing in my car before I got there and once I left, but the few hours I had with Brody and his family meant the world to me. For @nytimes. Scroll ➡️➡️➡️
