Devin Kohlman has terminal brain cancer and his doctors say he only has a few weeks to live.
The 13-year-old may not have a lot of time but he does have a lot of friends.
With chemotherapy not working Devin’s family brought him home on Sunday. His mother Alexis had just one wish "we want Devin to have the best Christmas that he's ever had."
Nearly the entire city of Port Clinton, Ohio, agreed and they showed up at the Kohlman’s house to make sure it happened.
The Toldeo News reports “seriously everyone" in Port Clinton came out to put on an early Christmas for Devin.
"I'm really glad that everyone came out here because he’s probably sitting in there with a really big smile on his face, happy that everyone came out here," a classmate said, smiling.
Walmart got into the act, donating gifts to the family while friends built a "winter wonderland" in a park across the street.
From the hospital bed in Devin’s window he can see a giant "Merry Christmas Devin" sign and the big tree neighbors decorated.
The Port Clinton News Herald says Devin watched as hundreds of people dressed in green and red came together in the street singing Christmas carols and launching balloons.
Even Devin’s trip home from the hospital was spectacular. Named "Operation Bright and Loud," Devin was escorted by over 100 vehicles including police, fire, friends, classmates, and neighbors.
Toledo Mayor Leone summed it up like this. "Personally, I believe in God and I pray that he's watching out for him. I know he is."
