Christmas and Noah Biorkman

During Tyler's battle with cancer, we received incredible support from many people. We are still in awe of the outpouring of our neighbors, as well as those around the county and the world. I could speak for days about the things that people did for us.

One of the many events that stands out was our Christmas of 2007. Tyler was home for the first time since his diagnosis. We knew Tyler only had two or three days before the chemo effects would send us running back to Children's. We could not really make any plans. We also had not bought many gifts..we were always in the hospital, and no one was really in the shopping spirit. But the six of us were all together, and we had a wonderful time. Then, in the middle of the night, gifts for all the boys were dropped off at our door step. It was a wonderful Christmas surprise. You can read the story here.

Noah Biorkman is 5 years old. Like all 5 year olds, he loves Christmas. One of Noah's favorite parts of Christmas is getting Christmas cards addressed in his name. Unfortunately, Noah appears to be approaching the end of a 2 1/2 year battle with cancer. Doctors are doubtful that Noah will make it to Christmas. In response, his family is celebrating Christmas this week-end. If you want to add to Noah's Christmas, all he is asking for is Christmas cards. He would love to receive one from you.

Please only send cards. Even if you live in the area, please do not go to their home. This is a private time for the family.
