FLINT (WWJ) - A Flint man dying from cystic fibrosis is holding out hope he will live to see his 21st birthday next week, and his mother is making sure he gets a couple of last wishes granted.

“The first day, we got like 13 cards in the mail from people we didn’t even know, the second day we got like 54 cards, yesterday we got about 39 cards. It’s just from all over, different states, and they’re all writing personal notes on there, like ‘Oh, I have a son with cystic fibrosis’ or ‘Hang in there and keep fighting.’ It’s just awesome. Some of them are even drawing pictures and it’s just overwhelming, the kindness that people are showing,” she said.

Everett is hoping people from across the nation will hear Chad’s story and send him a birthday greeting.

Everyone is encouraged to mail Chad a birthday card at:

Chad Everett 9165 Chatwell Club Drive, Apartment #14, Davison, Michigan 48423

A long time ago I lost a good friend to cystic fibrosis.

He was so smart, so funny...he is missed.

Rather than a card, I’m sending a prayer.
