I hope it is okay to post this on here...

My cousin had this posted on her Facebook this morning:

A 5 yr old little boy named Noah is in the last stages of Nueroblastoma cancer (2 1/2 yr battle). The family is celebrating Christmas next week, and Noah's request is to get a lot of Christmas cards. Lets send the little guy some:

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

Lets see how many cards we can get him! Pass it on!

I checked Snopes.com and it is true.

I will be mailing one out to him today I thought maybe some of you would like to mail one out to him, as well.

I mailed out a complete set of signed Cool Yule comics on Tuesday... maybe his parents can read them to him and they'll have some warm, funny memories at his bedside, not just the sorrow... that's my hope anyway...

Update: They've requested that the cards and gifts please be stopped.
Snopes.com/biorkman

Bless this little boy. ):


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.

Update 2:

Christmas has gained a new Angel as little Noah passed away this morning.


After a long battle with Stage IV Neruorblastoma cancer, Monday morning at 8:02 AM, Noah Biorkman passed away at his home in South Lyon, Michigan. Scott and I, along with our families, would like to thank everyone for the continued support over the past few years during Noah’s illness. As most of you know, Noah has received more than one million Christmas cards over the past few weeks. The outpouring of love and compassion has been remarkable and we are extremely grateful. We are now asking for everyone please respect our privacy during this very difficult time. The funeral services will be for family only. We are asking that instead of sending cards and flowers to Scott and me; please make a donation in Noah’s name to either of the organizations below. With your donation, Noah’s legacy will live on for many years to come, if not forever. Thank you so much for your support and love.

Sincerely,
The Biorkman Family
