5 yo kid w/ cancer - make his wish come true

Ok RS, we need your help on this.

We are doing something nice this year (early Christmas present) by having as many of us send this kid an Xmas card. The task is simple and the cost is inexpensive (just pay for a card and stamp). We argue and complain about petty things in life like which car is faster... when this kid won't live long enough to drive. We need to check ourselves sometimes.

Please send your card asap and sign it.. and may be say where you're writing from (e.g. Vancouver, Canada). As a "thank you" RS will publish your name/username on the front page as a contributor

We'd have to do this quickly as his prognosis is likely short...

A friend of one of our bodyman has a five year old boy named Noah who is car crazy, but sadly though he is loosing his battle with Cancer. His parents were told that he will most likely not make it to Christmas this year. They decided to celebrate Christmas early this year so Noah could be a part of it.

When they asked him what he wanted for Christmas he said he wanted a bunch of Christmas cards so I am e-mailing you to ask if you wouldn't mind helping this little boy have the best Christmas he has ever had.

If you want to be a part of this boy's wish, please send a Christmas card to (USA postage needed - $0.98):


Noah Biorkman
1141 Fountain View Circle
South Lyon
MI 48178


Any help would be appreciated.

Best Regards

Poor little guy I need to stop at the drug store today, so I'll pick one up and mail it. I think there was something similar to this last year, but the kid was a bit older. Even if it's not real, this kid is about to get a lot of christmas cards

My gf made a bunch of Christmas card this year. I'll ask her for one & put a pic of my car in as well. Fake or not, doing that will definitely give me a warm fuzzy feeling inside. Win-win situation, so why not.
