A wish from a 5-year-old kid

Ok. This sounded a lot like the typical Internet e-mail. So, I went to the source and had it verified. I have also asked Snopes to verify it, but since I got close enough, I decided to post this.

If you are so inclined, this seems a simple thing to do...

My son Hunter has been diagnosed with a rare form of non hotchkins lymphoma called Burkitts cancer. It only affects about 300 children a year. Usually between the ages of 2 and 11 and its usually boys but can effect girls also. Burkitts is one of the fastest growing tumors that we know of. He went into the hospital on a friday and the tumor was about the size of a tennis ball. By monday it was a little bigger than a cantalope. He was started on cemo and it shut down his kidneys and then his liver started failing. On Wednesday, He told me that he could not see very good and then he quit breathing. He had tubes placed down his throat, nose, arms, and toes. He has swelling of the brain due to high blood pressure. Hunter went into the hospital weighing 40 pounds and now weighs about 70 because of fluid build up. He is now stable and is in the intesive care unit at Buffalo Childrens Hospital in Buffalo, NY. Hunter is only five years old. I would just like everyone to know, that Hunter has been set up with the guiness book of world records to try to recieve the most paper airplanes. Please forward this on to everyone that you know . All you have to do is make a paper airplane and write the state or the country you are from on the wing of your plane and send it to..

Hm. Just up the street from me right now (2 blocks).

A local radio station just did a HUGE fundraiser there Thursday and Friday of last week (raised something like $320k for the hospital). I wonder if they have heard this story yet...

I concur- no mention of this here in the Buffalo area that I have heard.

Yeah, that was my thinking. There most certainly would have been mention of it in conjunction with the KISS 98.5 telethon they did last week for Women and Children's. I suppose I could take Elmwood home today instead of the 190 and vilidate the claim...

I did do a bit of research into it, and actually spoke with a family member about it, but if you'd corroborate, that'd be great. If it's not valid, we'll delete the thread.
