All I want for Christmas…
UPDATE 1124.09: Noah passed away at 8:02am this morning in his home. God hold you close baby. Noah and his family received over one million cards this month alone from around the world. Thank you again to everyone who sent one. Please pass the word to STOP sending cards because they need their privacy now. They have posted a request which you can find in the newest update here.
UPDATE 1118.09: STOP SENDING CARDS! From what was relayed to me, they received 80,000 pieces of mail on November 11th alone. Wow.
Wow!! Thanks! Please STOP!!!!

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.

This was sent to me today by an Art for Cures member. Please read and take a moment to send a card, it means the world to this little boy.
Noah Biorkman (age 5) is in the last stages of neuroblastoma cancer, after a two and a half year battle. He and his family are celebrating Christmas next week and all he wants are Christmas cards.
Please, please take a moment to send him a card and drop it in the mail right now. Do not put this off till tomorrow, he may not have one.
Please take a moment to send a card full of love to Noah and his family and keep the spirit of Christmas in your heart all year long.
Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers are with Noah and his family…
