I heard about this story on Facebook and thought I should share it with all of you. This little boy is sick and needs prayers and support. Not only that he has a birthday coming up and a special wish to get Birthday cards from every state in the US. I know with your help we can make his dream come true. Please read the message below for all the details.
Dear Friends, Family, & Strangers,
I know everyone is from a different state, and we have a favor to ask you. One of my friend’s little boys, Colton, from Chilton, WI, is 10 years old, has blood & bone marrow cancer for the second time (newly relapsed in September), and has a birthday wish! Here is his info & our mission:
“Colton was diagnosed with Pre-B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on Dec 28, 2007. He entered remission Jan 25, 2008 & had been fighting the good fight! On Aug 18, 2010, our doctors at St. Vincent’s found abnormal cells in Cole’s spinal fluid. On Sep 23, 2010, our worst fears were confirmed. Cole suffered Pre B Acute Lymphoblastic Isolated CNS Relapse.”
Colton is 10 years old and even made a list of things to do (bucket list) before he gets old…. One of his goals this year for his birthday is to receive a card from every state for his 11th birthday on November 18, 2010. I was wondering if you guys could help with his dream! He is from Wisconsin and is currently in the hospital again undergoing cancer treatment. Please could you send a card from your state?! We can totally make this happen!
The website with all his information is

Cole’s friends & family organizing the event are still looking for donations and/or silent auction items for his very first fundraiser. The money generated goes directly to his medical fund & hospital travel. Thank you!

By the way, just because that state is covered, doesn’t mean you can’t send a card! Let’s fill his mailbox up with hope! (He LOVES opening cards!)
