Over 50 postal trucks brought a special delivery to six-year-old fighting brain cancer

FRAMINGHAM, Mass.– Tuesday afternoon, more than 60 postal trucks delivered a special message of hope to the Suau family of Framingham.

The Framingham and Natick letter carriers one-by-one drove by the Suau’s home near Reardon Park. Each truck had green ribbons and #WhyNotDevin on it.


The unions of the two post offices wanted to support Devin Suau, who was diagnosed with DIPG earlier this year. The disease has no cure. His parents have launched the awareness campaign #WhyNotDevin hoping their youngest of four sons will be the first to defeat the disease.

Besides making him an honorary letter carrier with his own mail bag, filled with letters of support from the letter carriers, Devin was made an “honorary postmaster.”

“On behalf of the United States Postal Service, I’d like to make you the honorary postmaster of Framingham,” postmaster Shawn Pitts announced with a proclamation.

Devin waived to each and every truck as it passed by his house.

  1. UnAffordable Care Act has nothing to do with health care……supreme court even ruled it is nothing more than another tax on american citizens-deductables are in the $10,000 range and higher. if you like socialized medicine so much no one is stopping you from moving to russia. people from europe, canada, and russia come to USA because their health care is sub-standard. hope this little kid finds a good american doctor to find a cure.

    • It was started by Reagan and the supreme court did no such thing. You are nothing other than racist.

  2. How very nice of them. It’s good to see some good news in these pages because news being news, good and kind stuff doesn’t get mentioned nearly often enough.
    It is horrifying that a little boy and who knows how many other kids suffer from horrible diseases, disabilities and other bad things. Adulthood is bad enough on a normal day, so to foist such terrifying crap on a family suffering with their little boy or girl fighting for their lives, or grieving over the loss of one or more, is terribly unfair, but to spew a cliche, life isn’t.
    My wife and I wish we could do more, but we do contribute monthly to St. Jude’s in Memphis. Charities are very difficult to work with sometimes, because many of the biggest names are criminals, taking far more money, overpaying executives and other nasty activities under the guise of “helping others”. I wouldn’t give a penny to Red Cross, who are notorious for laundering tons of money, United Way, also a big time skimmer, and the outfit that worked the postal workers around Christmas begging for donations through payroll deductions, but upon further investigation we found a very minuscule amount was being allocated to those charities and the rest was getting taken for “administrative” costs. My contribution to St. Jude’s through this outfit would have amounted to about 10% of what I gave, and that is wrong, wrong, wrong.
    When you use a legitimate credit card or payroll deduction if it’s available and give directly to St. Jude’s, among other legitimate charities you can research online, every penny of your gift goes to the cause. Never donate to charity until you have done your homework. And I certainly hope Devin can be the first to beat this disease. One day we will have cures and preventative medicines for all cancer, but given the greed of U.S. pharmaceuticals and the AMA, it will come from Europe or somewhere else. And people still hate the Affordable Care Act and think socialized medicine is a bad thing.

    • I want to correct a sentence and there isn’t an edit option. My sentence to be corrected should read toward its end ” . . . grieving over the loss of one or more, is terribly unfair, but to spew a cliche, life isn’t fair.” Sorry for the typo.
