A 6-year-old Worcester boy waiting for a heart transplant is asking people to send him Christmas cards as he will be stuck in the hospital for the holiday, Boston 25 News reports.

Born with an unbalanced atrioventricular canal defect, Carlos Rolon had had four heart surgeries before he was two years old, and now will not be able to go home until he gets a new heart.

To stay upbeat while having to spend his favorite holiday, Carlos is asking people to send him Christmas cards he will use to "decorate his room."

  • Boston Children's Hospital
    Cardiac Unit 8 East
