Postal workers deliver smiles for boy battling deadly brain tumor

A six-year-old boy battling brain cancer in Massachusetts gets a special delivery from the U.S. Postal Service.

When their shifts ended, dozens of postal carriers got in their trucks to make one final delivery.

WCVB-TV in Boston was there when they created a parade for a boy named Devin Suau who was diagnosed a few months ago with a rare brain tumor. It's a type of cancer no one has survived before.

But the mail carriers in Framingham delivered a special message to the boy and his family: 'Why not Devin.' The 50 trucks in the make-shift parade were decorated in green ribbons and handmade signs with the slogan.

The carriers also gave Devin postal hats, a delivery bag filled with messages of support and they even made him honorary postmaster.

Along with the goodies came a much needed monetary gift for the Suau family. They were presented with a $2,100 check to help pay for experimental treatments for Devin.
