Boston's finest support Foxborough boy with brain tumor

Posted: Updated:
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (WHDH) - A Foxborough 5-year-old fighting a terminal brain tumor is getting support from his community and from some famous guests at an event to help the family raise funds.

The cast of Donny Wahlberg's Boston Finest, Patriots players and local first responders were at Waxy O'Conner's on Main Street for the event on Saturday, which helped to raise money for the large expenses associating with caring for the boy.

Danny Nickerson, who has a thing for firefighters, policemen and the military has DIPG, a rare form of terminal brain cancer.

Hundreds came out to show support for the local family.

The event was organized by Hero Helpers of America founder Lauren Eliopolous with help from family and friends.

"This is yet another example of our men in uniform helping someone in need. Sure, this is not their usual call to duty, but they are responding to our plea and hundreds are expected to attend," said Eliopolous.
