What This Little Boy Wants Will Melt Your Heart
A 5-year-old boy named Seth Lane was born with severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), a group of inherited disorders of the immune system. He lives in a sterile environment in the hospital because he does not have sufficient white blood cells to fight infection.
In this short video, the 5-year-old British boy holds up bright yellow note cards and asks people around the world to wear his favorite color yellow on March 27th. He asks people to take photographs of themselves and post them on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook with #wearyellowforseth.
The boy’s parents will hang those pictures around his hospital room so that he can know that he is not alone. The family can’t believe that the video of Seth has received so much attention. The boy will undergo a second bone marrow transplant on March 27th.
