Remember our post a few days ago inviting everyone to send a Christmas card to a little boy sick with cancer?
This is an update for those of you not following the story at carepages.com. The family now asks that no more cards be sent:
Wow! The outpouring of love and concern for Noah is just amazing! Scott and I never in a million years thought that so many people would want to send Christmas cards to Noah. However, please note: We did already celebrate Christmas LAST Sunday — November 8th.
PLEASE STOP SENDING CARDS AND GIFTS!!!!
Noah is very ill. He is not getting out of bed and it’s time for Scott, our families, and I to concentrate on our son. His time is very short and he needs us.
Scott and I would like to say thank you so much for the support and continued show of love. However, we are asking that everyone please stop sending cards and gifts.
Also, everyone please post the stop order on Facebook and any other websites or organizations that you belong to. We need the peace right now.
Thank you for your understanding in this request.
How much mail did Noah get? On Nov. 11, the family announced:
We received 80,000 pieces of mail on Monday alone!
Eighty. Thousand. Cards. Wow. God, are you listening?
Thanks for your support, folks. You’re a good bunch of people. Makes me wonder what else we could accomplish in this little corner of cyberspace with the holidays on the horizon.
Any ideas? Speak up in the comments.
