Doing a search in here http://www.clickondetroit.com/video/21525126/index.html

for the video using the title, in the last 30 days, it comes up and shows it was posted on 11/04/2009 at 6:59pm

and from the FB group:

Quote:
Description:
I just want to thank everyone for sending cards as well as prayers to Noah.

His family has asked me to relay the message that no more mail is sent to Noah as he is not doing well and his mom and dad want Noah to be with his family as much as possible.

Please continue to pray for Noah and the Biorkman family.

As Christmas is approaching, I'm looking to keep this group going for children who are in need. When I first created this group, I had NO idea that there would be 80,000 members! We can make such an impact in someone's life.

If you have any ideas please don't hesitate to send me a message, otherwise I hope that you keep checking back for updates. (read less)
That used to have the address, so it just recently changed

Before I question another man's request for help, can you please PM me links to your sources first. Thanks, SP.
Sorry, but it is true. I didn't notice this thread until I saw the announcement. It's a good thing you are doing, but for some reason the request is making rounds again after 2 years. I think he's still alive, just really sick and wouldn't be able to appreciate the cards.

A good source for this type of info, as always, is snopes.

Wow! The outpouring of love and concern for Noah is just amazing! Scott and I never in a million years thought that so many people would want to send Christmas cards to Noah. However, please note: We did already celebrate Christmas LAST Sunday — November 8th.

PLEASE STOP SENDING CARDS AND GIFTS!!!!

Noah is very ill. He is not getting out of bed and it's time for Scott, our families, and I to concentrate on our son. His time is very short and he needs us.

Scott and I would like to say thank you so much for the support and continued show of love. However, we are asking that everyone please stop sending cards and gifts.

Also, everyone please post the stop order on Facebook and any other websites or organizations that you belong to. We need the peace right now.

Thank you for your understanding in this request.

Ok thanks for the link, SP. I'm pretty sure we were all thinking the same thing: "Are we sending an Xmas card to a boy who has passed away 2 years ago???" But according to Snopes, the answer is no.

The post is recent and the family have managed to celebrate an Early Christmas with Noah on Nov. 8. Just flip through the dates:

Quote:
snopes.com

Noah Biorkman
Claim: Noah Biorkman, a 5-year-old boy battling cancer, wants to receive Christmas cards.

OUTDATED

Example: (Collected via e-mail, October 2009)

Diana Harrison Biorkman has a 5-yr old son in his last stages of a 2 1/2 year battle with Neuroblastoma cancer. They are celebrating Christmas next weekend and Noah loves Christmas cards.

Please take a minute to send a card to:

Noah Biorkman
1141 Fountain View Circle
South Lyon MI 48178

Origins: Noah Biorkman is a 5-year-old boy who was diagnosed with Stage IV neuroblastoma in February 2007. Although he went into remission in August 2007, his family says, in September 2008 Noah "relapsed with lesions in his right arm and right leg," and "after going through six different trials, the cancer continues to spread."

As radio station WKSR in Pulaski, Tennessee, notes on its web site, one of its on-air personalities is an acquaintance of Noah Biorkman's mother and verified the above-quoted appeal for Christmas cards for her son:
Christmas will come early for a five year old Michigan boy this year. Noah Biorkman is battling cancer and is not expected to live much longer.

Noah's mother and WKSR morning personality Ed Carter went to school together years ago. They keep in touch by email. She mentioned the early Christmas for her son in an email to Ed.

Mrs. Biorkman is asking for Christmas cards for her son. If you would like to take time to send a card or letter, send it to:

Noah Biorkman
1141 Fountain View Circle
South Lyon Michigan, 48178.

The family also provided an alternate address for cards and letters:
Noah Biorkman
c/o Scott Biorkman
3480 Petoskey Way
Milford, MI 48380

Updates about Noah can be viewed on his section of the CarePages web site, on which an appeal was posted on 13 November 2009 asking people to please stop sending cards:

Wow! The outpouring of love and concern for Noah is just amazing! Scott and I never in a million years thought that so many people would want to send Christmas cards to Noah. However, please note: We did already celebrate Christmas LAST Sunday November 8th.


PLEASE STOP SENDING CARDS AND GIFTS!!!!

Noah is very ill. He is not getting out of bed and it's time for Scott, our families, and I to concentrate on our son. His time is very short and he needs us.

Scott and I would like to say thank you so much for the support and continued show of love. However, we are asking that everyone please stop sending cards and gifts.

Also, everyone please post the stop order on Facebook and any other websites or organizations that you belong to. We need the peace right now.

Thank you for your understanding in this request.

Next time, maybe suggest donating money to cancer research rather than wasting trees to cheer up a single kid. I'm sure a few grand has been spent on this boy, and I bet once he's dead those cards aren't going to morph into a doctor and cure cancer!

People, we should all be volunteering and making a real difference rather than feeling good about ourselves because we drove 5 minutes to a card store and wrote some sentimental crap to a stranger and posted it.

Good point. I already support that research, but still good food for thought.

Whats stopping you from doing so? You can still donate or volunteer to a worthy cause to make a difference.

However many thousand was spent on cards and gifts to help a dying 5yr old boy feel that kind of joy and love (or still does) is priceless and was definitely worth every penny...

South Lyon boy, 5, dies after early Christmas

BY ZLATI MEYER
FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER


Noah Biorkman, the 5-year-old who received more than 1 million Christmas cards from around the world when it became apparent he wouldn't live until Christmas, died Monday of stage IV neuroblastoma in his home in South Lyon.

Noah was diagnosed in February 2007 and went into remission six months later, according to his Web site, www.carepages.com/carepages/NoahScottBiorkman/. In September 2008, he relapsed.

The effervescent child -- who charmed doctors and nurses at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital in Ann Arbor, where he got much of his treatment -- enjoyed Matchbox cars and Thomas the Tank Engine, Kedrin Gall, Make-A-Wish Foundation of Michigan's development director, said Monday.

• DISCUSS: Did you send a card to Noah?

The year he was diagnosed, the organization granted Noah's wish for a trip to Disneyland.

Noah is survived by his parents, Scott and Diana Biorkman. The funeral will be for family only.

Memorial contributions may be sent to Noah's Pediatric Oncology Fund, Department of Pediatrics and Oncology, U-M, 1500 E. Medical Center, D4202MPB, Ann Arbor 48109, or to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Michigan, 230 Huron View, Ann Arbor 48103.

on the bright side... at least he got his wish fulfilled.
1 million cards is a lot! He must have been happy before he went.

RIP nonetheless, a truly tragic story.
