9-year-old’s Christmas wish for aunt fighting breast cancer


A 9-year-old from Brooklet has a special Christmas wish this year.

In a letter to Santa Claus, Liam, of Brooklet, says he’s been really good this year. He asked Santa for just two things — including a wish for his Aunt Kimberly, a teacher in Appling County.

“Well, Santa you can bring whatever. The only thing I can think is a new basketball. Thank you Santa,” Liam wrote. “Hey, one more thing. My aunt is having cancer, will you make her feel better Santa?”

Liam’s grandma, Sarah Boatwright shared the sweet note with News 3. She says her daughter, Liam’s Aunt Kimberly, has breast cancer.

“We just thought it was rare for a 9-year-old to think of others,” she said.
