Community celebrates holidays early for terminally ill boy



This year, Christmas, Halloween and a birthday party came all at once for a 4-year-old Utah boy.

Ethan Van Leuven has been battling acute lymphoblastic leukemia since he was 2 years old, and doctors recently told his family he may not live through the end of the year, MyFoxAtlanta reported. Doctors said his cancer is no longer treatable.

To make his last days as special as can be, Ethan’s community, in the town of West Jordan, Utah, came together to celebrate the holidays and his birthday.

Ethan went trick-or-treating Oct. 21 and opened presents under a Christmas tree Saturday morning, Oct. 25.
