Terminally Ill Wisconsin Girl's Last Wish is to Get Letters From Dogs

A Wisconsin girl with terminal cancer wishes to receive letters from dogs.

Emma Mertens, 7, has already received over 80,000 letters written by dogs (with the help of their owners, of course). According to CNN, Emma's friends and family came up with the idea to cheer her up after learning she has a rare form of brain cancer with no cure.

Dogs from all over the world have written her letters - from Japan to Australia and Venezuela. Her family initially had a PO box set up, but there have been so many letters pouring in that they're asking dogs to now post to the Team Emma - Emmalovesdogs7 Facebook page.

The girl's neighbor also set up a GoFundMe to help her and her family cover medical bills.
