Allie doesn’t want toys for Christmas.
Instead, the 7-year-old has asked Santa for something much greater—a cure for cancer.
Kasie Muir Hart of Georgia posted a letter her daughter wrote to Santa to her Facebook page last Tuesday. In the letter, Allie expressed her desire for Santa to find a cure for her 13-year-old brother, Robert.
“I have been really good this year,” Allie writes in her letter. “Please try.”

According to FOX 5, Robert was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in December 2010 and has had “over 65 spinal taps, around 800 doses of chemotherapy, about 16 days of radiation, three leukemia protocols and two clinical trials.”
“Robert is now 13-years-old and as innocent as they come,” his mother told the station. “Still believes in Santa.”
“Now, if anyone can find the cure for childhood cancer in the next few weeks that would (be) swell ...” Hart wrote on her post. “Our kids deserve so much more.”
