** IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ!!

**Update! The family has been overwhelmed with cards (over one million!), and it's become more of a burden than a blessing at this point. The child isn't expected to live till Christmas and the family asks for our prayers during this very difficult time. DO NOT send a card if you haven't already!!! Thank you!

My dear friend Ann emailed this to me:

Hi all, today in church we learned of a young boy who lives in Warner Robins (GA) who has cancer. He's not expected to live beyond the end of this year. The Make a Wish Foundation is working with his family to help fulfill his wishes. One of his wishes is to receive the most Christmas cards ever. Please send one to him when you send out your other Christmas cards. Thanks, Ann - the address is:
So PLEASE send this child a Christmas card, blog about it, and email this info to everyone in your address book!! It's such a small wish and we can all do something special for this child!!!

I'm so sad to hear this lil fella isn't going to make it. what an amazing response that the family received, I'm glad he got his wish. I hadn't mailed mine yet, so I won't trouble them with it.
