    A teenager from Arizona has a birthday wish: to receive 100,000 birthday cards and to raise awareness for his terminal illness, mitochondrial disease. 

    Dutch Bros Coffee is trying to help Jake Priestley reach that goal.

    At Dutch Bros Coffee shops around the country, there are post cards people use to write to Priestley. The coffee shop will then send the post cards to him. There aren't any Dutch Bros Coffee shops in North Texas, but you can send a birthday card to Priestley here: 

    Jacob Priestley

    Queen Creek, AZ 85142

    Priestley will turn 15 years old on August 28. According to his Facebook page, "Adventures with Mighty Jake," he was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease when he was 10.
