It’s an unforgettable birthday for a 9-year-old boy in Delaware — all thanks to the kindness of strangers from around the world.

Kiernan Clark is celebrating his ninth birthday inside the Nemours Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children.

Clark is receiving care for complications from a rare intestinal condition called Hirschprung’s Disease.

To cheer him up, Kiernan’s father launched a Facebook campaign asking for birthday cards.

Throughout the weekend, Kiernan got thousands of cards, messages, balloons and presents from across the globe, bringing a smile to his face.

Kiernan hopes to continue opening up messages throughout his stay.
