I received an email today from a trusted friend regarding an article that had been run about a young boy here in North Carolina who has been suffering from neuroblastoma, an incurable form of cancer often occurring in young children, since 2005. The doctors have said there is nothing else they can do for him.
He told his father his request for Christmas is that people would send him cards.
Now I realize that we all have probably received emails about sick children before. However, I went to the website of the newspaper that ran the article, and I believe this to be legitimate. You can read the article for yourself here. One commenter on the site actually suggested this may be a spoof, and the editor of the online paper came back and stated that sadly it was in fact true.
The little boy’s name is Damien Hammonds. His address is 409 Burns Road, Lumberton, NC 28358. I took this information straight from the online article.
Would you please consider sending a card along with your prayers to this young boy? We are the body of Christ, and as such, this is one way to be His hands and feet to those in need of His touch.
Thank you, and
