Seth Lane, a five-year-old boy born without a proper immune system, asked the world to show him support on March 27, and the world answered.
People from all over, and some of Hollywood's biggest stars, came out in support of the little boy on Friday by posting pictures of themselves wearing yellow. Superstar Ashton Kutcher even created a video telling Seth, "I'm thinking about you today buddy!"

Seth's illness, Severe Combined Immunodeficiency, is also known as "bubble boy disease" because it requires him to remain in a sterile environment.
The treatment for the disease involves a bone marrow transplant. Seth had one previously, but it was unsuccessful — despite keeping him in his "bubble unit" in Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary in the UK for two years afterwards.
To support his upcoming second transplant, Seth's father created the now-viral heartwarming video of little Seth requesting people to post pictures of themselves wearing his favorite color with the hashtag #WearYellowForSeth.
Aside from Ashton, Joe Jonas and Craig Ferguson are among the stars who have donned yellow for the cause.
