Yeah, this kid has been a real inspiration to everyone here in the Greater Seattle Area.  They held a food drive that filled over 7 Semi's full of food, enough to fill a warehouse.  Nearly a $100K in cash was raised and divided up amoungst the local food banks.  The members of the Seattle Seahawks football team not only helped make and collect donations but promised to pay for the funeral and burial of the young man.

I've heard reports that the news of his last wish has inspired people from as far away as Australia and South Africa.  Such an accomplishment from a mere 11 year-old boy.  Very Humbling, but shows just how much difference one person can make.
