Meet six year old Dorian Layton of Casper, Wyoming.

Dorian was diagnosed with brain cancer at 15 months old.  A recent battle with the illness again forced him to spend Christmas at the Wyoming Medical Center.  Instead of feeling bad for himself, he used his Christmas money to buy gifts for the other patients.  His kindness wasn't limited to the hospital either. Layton has helped raise thousands of dollars to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and purchased treats and toys for the Casper Metro Animal Shelter.

Dorian's tumor has reached a point it has become inoperable and untreatable.  He has written a bucket list of things he wants to accomplish in his lifetime.

My name is Dorian Layton, but my family and friends call me Ninja Dorian. I am a Make-A-Wish kid and I am also a cancer kid. I have a brain tumor, but I am not afraid. Ninjas are BRAVE! One day, I will go to sleep and not wake up, but people shouldn’t be sad about that because Heaven is an alright place. I know the reason I am here. I am supposed to help people be happy and tell them that they shouldn’t be scared.
