I don't know Nathan, nor do I know Chief Mitchell who organized this photo...but I want to thank Chief Mitchell for the effort he made in answering a little boy's wish. This is one of my all time favorite Christmas Spirit stories. I hope I have the opportunity to give so much from the heart. And Best Wishes to Nathan.

I just went to the boys family blog site. Wow!. Such a young child and all the treatments he has gone through. Clearly, no one wants to give up. Very brave!
