Parade, decor, cards: Christmas comes early for Kentucky toddler with brain cancer


BURLINGTON, Ky. (WZTV) — A Kentucky family got heartbreaking news.

Their 2-year-old son with brain cancer may only have a few months to live.

So, they are enjoying the time they have and moved Christmas up so he could enjoy the holiday.

Little Brody got to see Santa in September. He calls him "Ho-Ho."

The local police station also showed up - to put him in the driver’s seat of their patrol cars.

The boy's family - couldn't be more thankful for everyone's support.

"To have so many people across the world reach out to my son to tell him ‘Merry Christmas, we're thinking about you, we love you’ is just the greatest gift that I as a father could never give him," Brody’s dad Todd Allen said.

Earlier in the week, Christmas decorations started going up in Brody's neighborhood.

Then cards started coming in the mail from all over the world and they haven't stopped.

Next week, a Christmas parade will take place in Brody's Burlington neighborhood.
