Sad story for small child

November 20, 2009 - Frank Robinson
I received this note from a person named Amanda Moody who lives here in Warren. It's a heart-breaking note about a very ill little boy she knows who may not make it to Christmas. I thought I would pass along her request, so here it is:

"I'm not sure if I am trying the right place. As a bartender, I hear a lot of stories but this one breaks my heart. This is such a simple request from a young child. "Noah is a 10-year-old who is terminally ill with cancer. I'm unsure what type but he is dying. Normal kids would want to go to Disney World or meet someone famous before they die. Well, this child wants to receive the most Christmas cards ever. I'm not sure if that's a personal record or world record, but how unusual and so very simple.

Unfortunately Noah isn't expected to survive until Christmas, so can anyone, everyone spare at least the stamp to send this little boy a card? What a simple wish for such a young child. Please help us fulfill this child's wish. Pass this along to everyone. Let's pull together to make this happen. I would love to be a part in fulfilling this boy's wish. Please feel free to edit this in any way but please publish it."

Well the sad news it may be too late. I googled the kid's name and he's actually 5, and a message on snopes.com says the family has received a huge outpouring of support. However, they request that no more letters or gifts be sent because they celebrated Christmas already. It also says they need time now to spend with Noah, as he apparently is near death.

It's just a sad story.
