The mother of a boy from Cornwall who was born with half a heart is asking people to send him birthday cards. Leanne Richards says the only mail that arrives for nine year-old Daniel at their home in St Austell is from the hospital. She's posted an appeal on Facebook.
" Daniel was born with only half a heart, his condition is called hypoplastic left heart syndrome which is a life limiting condition. Daniel will be 9 years old on New Year's Days. Daniel loves it when the postman comes - he goes to the door to see if there's any for him, but apart from hospital post he doesn't get any. So I am asking family and friends to send him a birthday card to put a big much needed smile on his face for his birthday."
