Little Boy With Cystic Fibrosis Asks For Cards And Stickers While Battling COVID

While COVID-19 has been incredibly difficult for many people, some individuals have been hit harder than others.

For those people with pre-existing conditions, the health risks associated with contracting the virus are even higher and serve as deadly comorbidities.

One little boy who's been battling both cystic fibrosis and COVID-19 has recently gone viral for his simple request: for people to send him cards and stickers

This little boy is hanging on.

At the end of 2020, 5-year-old Noah Schneider from Yuba City, California, was diagnosed with COVID-19 while also struggling with cystic fibrosis, an inherited, life-threatening disease he was born with. As a result, he's been hospitalized nearly 35 times throughout his short life.

As Good Morning America reported, the disease affects the youngster's lungs, digestive system, and other organs. But damage caused by his COVID diagnosis is putting this little boy through even more pain.

While he's still battling the deadly virus in the hospital, this little boy still enjoys playing with stickers, looking at books, and building things.

In fact, since he was admitted, he's acquired quite the sticker collection, thanks to some generous nurses at the hospital.

A family friend recently put out a public plea on Facebook for people to send Noah cards and stickers, and everyone's been overwhelmed by the response that post has gotten. Noah's been flooded with packages ever since.

"He loves getting them," Noah's mom, Haley Schneider, told GMA. "He asks almost every day, 'Did I get a package?'"
