"Xan," as his brothers call him, suffers from a rare neurodegenerative disease, WTAE reports. He's currently being treated at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh at UPMC and living with his family at a Ronald McDonald House.

"I know time is running out for him," his mom, Jennifer Moses, told the station. But Xan has a big wish to fulfill before that time comes -- he hopes to earn one million Facebook fans .

Xan's Facebook page, appropriately called "XAN'S FANS," had more than 133,000 "likes" by Monday morning. And his message is inspiring.

"I have a purpose and it is to help others," Xan said, according to the page. "You see, sometimes I'm really scared and I just keep being brave... So, if I keep being brave even when I'm scared then I'll show people how to do it, too... Then, all the people I show everyday will want to be my fan!!"
