This is a wish all of us can help to make come true...



This is a real request folks. Just a few moments ago I received a request from a friend to send a Christmas card to a 7 year old boy battling brain cancer. As his mom says on her blog "While we are busy filling our stockings, baking cookies and decking our halls, a little boy is busy planning his last Christmas." His last Christmas wish happens to be one that we all can fulfill if we do it together. Nate wants to receive one million Christmas cards. He can count on 5 from our family, one from each of us...please spread the word and send a card to:

Nate Elfrink
2415 Taylor-Blair Road
West Jefferson, OH 43162

Also from his mom's blog: "On December 11, at 6 p.m., hold a light in your heart for Nate and his family. Nate will help Santa flip the switch to turn on the light display at Garrette Park, in his hometown of West Jefferson, Ohio. On Dec. 12 at 5:30 p.m. Nate will ride with Santa on a float in the West Jefferson Christmas in the lighted parade. May Nate’s spirit light your heart this year."

Merry Christmas Nate!

Since Dodie informed us of Nates recent results I have the feverish desire now to pray asking god now for a miracle2) ...Dear sweet Jesus please hear our pleas, we now ask that you bestow a miracle upon our precious Nate ...rid him of this devious illness and make him whole once again.We pray that you alow Nate to be a true testomony to all of your great powers, your unabiding love for us all. Thank you dear Jesus, AMEN Please I know many are and have been praying for Nate, I'm asking to spread this request and ask god for a miracle and rid him of this tumor once and for all. I pray for Nate to be our Christmas Miracle, wont you all join me in my new quest? Thank you all from deap within my heart :)Sincerely Aunt Dee Elfrink

I will put a card in the mail tomorrow. Would it be OK to post Nate's address on my facebook to spread the word. God Bless.

Hi,

Just wanted to leave a note to say that the family of Nate has said that they are overwhelmed by cards and that it has gotten too much to handle. They prefer donations be made to the hospital instead.

Here is a link to their request: http://www.columbusmessenger.com/NC/0/7519.html
