Help Me Send Postcard to 5 Years Old Cancer Dying Boy

The title state it pretty well…

There is this 5 years old boy in Michigan who have cancer since he was 3, and sadly his condition aren’t getting any better.  His parents thinks that their little boy, name Naoh Biorkman by the way, won’t make it through Christmas, so they asked everyone who are kind enough could send him a card as his last Christmas present.

I don’t really do this kind of stuff, but the story just really touched me.  He only lived for 5 years, and his little life are ending.  I just feel so sad…so as fella otaku/friend/blogger, pleas consider sending him a card wishing him Marry Christmas.

Five-year-old Noah Biorkman of South Lyon will celebrate Christmas early this year.

His parents, Diana and Scott, wanted to make sure he would see the holiday one last time before cancer claims his life. They’ll have their own Christmas this weekend.

Noah was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in 2007, when he was 3 years old.

He went into remission, but then relapsed in September 2008. His family is not expecting him to make it to Christmas Day.

The media caught wind of the story and now thousands of people from across the country and around the world have sent Noah gifts and cards.

An entry on the Web site Reddit asking for people to send cards is at the top of the list on AskReddit today, with 1,723 votes and 840 comments.

The movement also has a Facebook invitation page with more than 10,000 confirmed guests and wall posts from people in Finland, Sweden, England and Canada.

You can send cards or gifts directly to the family’s home at 1141 Fountain View Circle, South Lyon, MI 48178.

You can also send them through Metro Detroit country radio station WYCD.

The family is asking people not to stop by their home.

Local NBC news station WDIV did a video report on Noah’s Christmas, which you can watch here: WDIV video.

When Noah opens an angel Christmas tree ornament, the reporter asks him what it means to him.

“I’m going to heaven,” Noah responds. “I’m going to be an angel.”
