Hi everybody, there is a seven-year-old boy in my area who is dying of cancer and who’s birthday is coming up in just about a month. Please pray for him and for his family and friends if you could.
"Shane Bernier is a courageous seven-year-old boy from Lancaster, Ontario who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia when he was only five. On June 6th, 2006 Shane and his family received some unfortunate news: Shane experienced a relapse after completing 108 of 130 weeks of treatment.
However, despite the bad news, Shane has managed to keep a positive outlook on his situation and has made a heart-warming wish… He hasn’t asked for money or toys or anything of the sort. Instead, his birthday is on May 30th and he would like to break the world record for the most birthday cards ever received. His goal is 350 million cards. With every card, Shane’s courage grows. Something as simple as sending a birthday card could be enough to help Shane find peace and joy in his current circumstances."
For more information on sending Shane a card, please see this thread: forums.catholic.com/showthread.php?t=149335
Thank you so much for your prayers and support.
