HIRAM, Ga. - It was a sea of Christmas red and green among a whole lot of khaki for a 6-year-old Hiram boy as the Paulding County Sheriff's Office helped to make little boy's Christmas wish come true. The deputies posted his joy on their Facebook page.
Brantley Dobbs has an inoperable tumor on his brain stem. Most kids who have this diagnosis live nine to 12 months. Brantley is now on month 20, and he wants to at least be able to celebrate the holidays one last time.
His family decided to start Christmas early for him and they have asked folks send him ornaments.
Friday, the deputies visited Little Brantley, bringing dozens of ornaments for the child including one giant one signed by the deputies.
"This young man and his family have the best spirit and were extremely humbled and appreciative of the overwhelming support that the community has given them since the Fox 5 news story yesterday," the sheriff's office posted on their Facebook page. "God bless Brantley and this amazing family."
