From a Fellow Advocate

from Brian Kozina, Hotline and F2F Advocate since Fall 2008

When I hear about stories like this, my heart really goes out to people involved.

My grandmother died on Christmas in 2006, and made it very clear to us that under no circumstances were we ever to treat Christmas as anything less than special. My mother also has cancer. She is currently in remission, but the unthinkable could happen faster than I think, and because of this, every Christmas with her is a blessing.

I hope you'll all read over this and then send a card. You can make Christmas unforgettable for a 5 year old boy you've never met.

Title: Cards for Noah

Noah Biorkman is a 5 year old boy who is in the final stages of a battle with Neuroblastoma (a form of cancer). He was originally diagnosed in February 2007. He went into remission but the cancer returned stronger in August 2008 and despite multiple attempts at treatment, it continues to spread.

Noah is in the end stages of life, and his family is celebrating Christmas early since he may not live until December 25th.

Noah loves Christmas cards. I think we should all send him one.Diana (Noah's mother) is asking that anyone who is able, send $1 in a card to the family and they will donate it to the University Of Michigan neuroblastoma research center and the Michigan Make A Wish Chapter.

Cards can be sent to:
Noah Biorkman
1141 Fountain View Circle
South Lyon, MI, 48178

Let's show some love to Noah and his family and make this the best Christmas they've ever seen.
