"Danny was the little boy who wanted only cards for his birthday, and got truckloads of them," according to CBS Boston.

"Now, 6-year-old Ryan McGuire of Foxboro is planning to play 100 holes of golf in one day in hopes of raising $5,000 for pediatric cancer research, in memory of his kindergarten classmate."

Little Ryan reminisced about his friend Danny by telling CBS Boston that his friend was a "good boy and a really nice friend." Their story shows that no matter what age you are you can make a difference.

"Ryan's grandfather, who beat prostate cancer, will be his caddy on June 17 at MGA Links in Norton," reports Lana Jones. "Ryan would be the youngest to ever complete 100 holes of golf in a single day."

McGuire is showing a ton of strength and a huge heart in his attempt to honor his friend and it's safe to say that anyone who reads the story is going to be rooting for McGuire. Good luck Ryan!
