Noah is 5 years old. He is one of our fellow patients at The University of Michigan's Pediatric Cancer Center. Noah is a very sick little boy. His family is grieving. Even before losing this precious little boy to an unthinkable disease. His family is grieving.
His mother was told the absolute most devastating news. Noah was dying. Noah would not live to see another Christmas. The one Holiday that nearly every single child in the world looks forward to. Noah's mom decided to throw together an early Christmas for Noah. One filled with family and love. Complete with a Christmas tree, decorations and presents.
Noah's mom asked for cards to be mailed to their little boy. Christmas cards, upon the request of Noah! Paul actually heard this request on the radio just the other night. He mentioned to me that Brandon Inge, of the Detroit Tigers was involved. I knew immediately who Paul was talking about. Brandon Inge and his wife are HUGE supporters of UofM's Pediatric Cancer Center. I knew exactly who he was talking about. I quickly jumped online to Noah's carepage. One I've followed for a long time. I realized then that I had not been getting Noah's updates (along with a whole slew of others) and so I began to read. I began to cry. This sweet little boy is losing his battle. Not fair. Not fair at all.
Please hop on over to Noah's carepage and read the latest from his mom. This outpouring of love and support for this family is going way over the lines. Way too much for his family to deal with at this time. All mom asks for is, Christmas cards sent to her son.
Please keep this wonderful family in your prayers. They are hurting, but yet, trying to put smiles on their faces and make a magical moment for their dying son.
Rainy Days and Mickey
