Krista Dillabough is asking people to send cards and letters of support to her 10-year-old cousin with Lyme disease. Nick, who lives in Perth, was bitten by a tick. Dillabough says some days are tougher than others for Nick.

She says his symptoms have been getting worse since May. She is hoping people will send cards with positive messages, like ‘thinking of you’ or ‘you can get through this’ to help Nick through his tough days.

Letters and cards can be sent to 7124 County Road 18, Spencerville Ontario, K0E 1X0. Dillabough plans to gather all the letters and surprise Nick with them.
