It's a picture that has captured the compassion of the nation: Four-year-old Dyrk Burcie in the arms of a Dallas firefighter.

Dyrk is in the final stages of incurable cancer, and his father is putting together a scrapbook with images of support sent in by WFAA viewers.

Photos have been pouring in this weekend. The Irving Fire Department hoisted a giant American flag over a Las Colinas canal with two ladder trucks and a fire boat.

Coppell firefighters created an unforgettable portrait featuring three firetrucks and the firefighters themselves spelling out DYRK.

Comanche Florist sent a message to Dyrk the way they know best — with flowers and a sign saying "We Love You."

And how about this: Carolyn Mendoza Canales baked cookies spelling out Dyrk's name. She just wants the youngster's family to know they are in her prayers.
