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.
Please take the time to send a card to Shane and make his dream become a reality. Share his story with your friends, family and co-workers. If at all possible, get your youth groups, church congregations, employees, neighbours or communities to set aside a few minutes to write a thoughtful note to Shane.

I'll be more than glad to send him a card. I wish him the best, I hope he isn't suffering and I hope he has a happy birthday.

Shane's address is at the link. Also another way to help:
"One way to help spread the word is to register on Digg.com and then digg this story. You'll notice the Digg button in the upper left-hand corner of the site. The higher the number, the more likely it is that people will hear about Shane's effort. Digg.com is a user-submitted news community. By "digging" the story, you promote it and let others know that the story is worthwhile."

While many of these pleas are "urban legends", this one, in fact, is True.
Unfortunately, May 30 is tomorrow.....
