Terminally ill boy raises close to $1,000,000 because he wants other children to live past 5

Six year old Tijn is terminally ill with a form of brain cancer, and his life expectancy is less than 1 year. Despite this, Tijn has one wish, which is to help prevent other children from dying with pneumonia.

Tijn's request is for you to paint your nails and simply donate $1 to the Red Cross. So far Tijn has raised close to 1 million dollars, and started a movement which has received phenomenal support.

“Most of the poor kids infected with pneumonia don’t even live to be five years old. That is why we’re standing up to fight,” the Dutch boy’s father told the Glass House in Breda.

Tijn, we love you, and we’re behind you.
