My Granddaughter's Card to Noah Biorkman
A Card For Noah
The first time I saw a hub about Noah, I skimmed it and figured it was a scam of some sort. But the next time I saw the story there was a link to Snopes and I realized that it was horribly true.
Noah Biorkman is a five year old little boy dying of cancer in Michigan. He has a wish and it is not to meet Miley Cyrus, play for the Michigan Wolverines or ride his own pony. He just wants one more Christmas and lots of Christmas cards. Apparently no one, except God, can grant him the "one more Christmas" wish but we can sure send him a card.
Go to the forums if you want some more information on Noah. The one titled "A dying child's last wishes" is full of info including the address, links to snopes, etc.
Just picked up Maddie, my seven year old granddaughter, at school and told her about Noah. She immediately agreed to make him a Christmas card and wanted to put a dollar in it! I told her he just wanted the card but she said "If he gets well he can go and get him something."
I couldn't bring myself to tell her that he was not going to get well.
We walked it out to the mailbox and a helicopter flew over from the local hospital. She thought it might be Noah and I told her that Michigan was a long way from South Carolina. Then I showed her Noah's picture on my computer and where Michigan is on the map. She still thought he might get well and get to spend her dollar. Such is the faith of children!
Bad day at work? Be thankful! Car payment past due? Be thankful! Can't find a job right now? Be thankful! In other words there are a lot of problems in this world and hardly any of them can compare to the problems this little boy and his family are facing. Be thankful!
And Noah, your card's in the mail.
Merry Christmas-we love you!
