I received a very sad email today, please read. The email was from mcmahonfivedesign.com and she says :-
I don't normally do this but this story touched my heart...
2 card making friends have passed this story of Little Noah on to me. It touched my heart and the best way to reach all my card making friends was thru this email. I have verified the story with snopes.com as true. Please continue reading below about a sweet, young boy in the final stages of cancer. He loves Christmas Cards and his family is asking for cards to be sent to him. They are celebrating Christmas this weekend and your card probably won't get to him in time for their celebration, but I'm sure he and his family will appreciate your beautiful works of art all the same.
Help Little Noah Celebrate Christmas Early!
Five year-old Noah Biorkman is in hospice and we need your help to make this the best Christmas ever by sending him Christmas cards! His family will be celebrating Christmas this weekend.
Noah was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma in February 2007. He went into remission in August 2007. In September 2008, Noah relapsed with lesions in his right arm and right leg. After going through six different trials, the cancer continues to spread. Noah is an angel and we are blessed to have him in our lives.
Please help the fulfill the Biorkman family's wish to make this the best Christmas ever for Noah. You can send your Christmas cards to:
c/o 99.5 WYCD
2201 Woodward Heights Blvd.
Ferndale, MI 48220-1511
►PLEASE NOTE: 99.5 WYCD and the Biorkman Family respectfully request that you do not stop by their home with your well wishes during this time. They have been overwhelmed with visitors and well wishers, and while it is very greatly appreciated, they need this time to care for and be with Noah.
On Wednesday, November 4th, WDIV-TV spoke with the Biorkman Family - watch the video below!
