This Noah Biorkman hoax can no longer be considered a hoax because sources said that the emailed request for Christmas cards in behalf of Noah Biorkman of South Lyon, Michigan, a 5-year old boy dying of neuroblastoma cancer is genuine. According to WDIV-TV News in Detroit, Noah was diagnosed with Stage IV neuroblastoma in February 2007 and has been fighting the disease ever since and is not expected to live till Christmas. The boy love Christmas and receiving things in the mail so his mother reached out to a radio station to ask for people to send Christmas cards to her son.
