Robert Hart was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2010 and has since been receiving treatment for it.

Muir Hart shared the letter on Facebook December 12, writing, "Sweetest and saddest thing I've ever read. Now, if anyone can find the cure for childhood cancer in the next few weeks that would be swell if not a little girl is going to wonder why."
