Michigan Native Has Specific Wish for His 100th Birthday

A mid-Michigan man and World War II veteran is about to turn 100 years old.

He hasn’t blown out the candles on his cake just yet, but he has made a wish and you can help it come true.

Ike Fabela will join the less than 2 percent of Americans to make it 100 years old on June 6.

To celebrate his century of a milestone he is asking his fellow Michiganders to fill his nursing home room with 100 birthday cards.

Fabela says he’s so thankful for already receiving a few dozen but hopes they keep on coming up until his birthday.

If you’d like to send Fabela a card, his address is listed below.
