Iowa Boy Who Asked for Racing Stickers for His Casket Dies

'Before I was woken up being told he was getting ready to pass, he was smiling at me while I was dreaming.

Twelve NASCAR race cars will honor Hammond today at IMS during the Xfinity race and Brickyard 400. 'Our deepest condolences go out to the friends & family of Caleb Hammond'. It was kind of our deal, ' Playle said. "I probably had just as much fun as he did". Playle said the stickers poured in after social media appeals and helped keep everyone's spirits up.

Caleb Hammond's family announced his passing on Facebook early Monday morning.

Caleb Hammond, a young racing fan from Iowa in the USA, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in February a year ago.

The deadly suicide attack came hours after multiple bombings targeted schools in Nangarhar's capital, Jalalabad . Provincial health director Najibullah Kamawal and Khogyani both confirmed the latest casualty toll.

Race drivers and others answered his social media call for stickers to decorate his casket, and he was even given a chance to drive a race auto at a local track, under the guidance of a 12-year-old racer. Now 11, Hammond and his family recently chose to stop treatment at Blank Children's Hospital in Des Moines, Iowa, because it was no longer helping.

So Caleb left the hospital where he had been receiving treatments for his two-year battle with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia and returned to his home in Oskaloosa, Iowa, to live the rest of his life away from painful procedures, and to spend time with his family.

The #TeamCaleb logo was designed by Shawn Magee Design in Canton, Ohio.
