Do the Right Thing, Holiday Cheer

I received this email yesterday.
Please read and pass on. Do your part!

"This is a sad, but amazing story. I just spoke with my brother who is a counselor in this students building, and they delivered over 600 cards today.......

There is a young man that has been told that he is going to die and there is nothing more that the doctors can do for him as he has terminal cancer. He was asked what he would like for Christmas, as this will be his last one, and he replied "I want a million Christmas cards." Do you think you could find it in your heart to send this young man his last Christmas card... per his one last Christmas wish.

If you were curious, here is a little information on Nate. He is a 9 year old little boy who has been battling brain cancer for several years and was just told from his doctors at St. Jude's that his battle will soon come to an end and there is nothing more that they can do for him. He has been a true fighter, unfortunately he has exhausted all forms of treatment that exist. Just another reason that we keep "Relaying" to find a cure for this horrible disease. They have had a "Nate's Mates" Relay for Life team the past several years in honor of Nate.

Please when mailing out your Christmas cards this year, take the time to make out just one more. Hug your kids and count your blessings this holiday season and please keep Nate and his family in your prayers... And forward this on, lets make Nate's Christmas wish come true.

Please pass this on to your friends, family and co-workers and lets see if Nate can get his Christmas wish."

His name and address is as follows:
Nate Elfrinck
2415 Taylor Blair Road
West Jefferson, Ohio 43162

* Yes, this story has been confirmed.
