Record Number of Birthday Cards

Got this via email

Shane is a 7 year old little boy with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He is an awesome guy who has been in hospital for over 2 years straight receiving Chemotherapy protocol (currently in week 108/130). He has one birthday wish this year: To Break the world Record for the Number of birthday cards received in one calendar year (record currently 35,000,000). His birthday isn't until May 30 but you can start mailing the cards now - so tell everyone you know to take a couple dollars, buy a card and a stamp and mail the card to :

Shane Bernier
Box 484
Lancaster, ON
K0C 1N0
Sounds like a classic hoax, but snopes says it's true. I'm in just cause it's nice to have an email that tripped my hoax radar turn out to be true.

- Peace

True story with plenty of news coverage (print: eg. Ottawa Citizen; video: CTV; and radio: KISS-FM) and May 30th is his B'day so time's ticking away. We've sent one from each member of our household...can you do the same? It all helps!
