Shane's Wish

Shane Bernier is a courageous seven-year-old boy from Lancaster, Ontario who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia when he was only five. On June 6th, 2006 Shane and his family received some unfortunate news: Shane experienced a relapse after completing 108 of 130 weeks of treatment.

However, despite the bad news, Shane has managed to keep a positive outlook on his situation and has made a heart-warming wish... He hasn’t asked for money or toys or anything of the sort. Instead, his birthday is on May 30th and he would like to break the world record for the most birthday cards ever received. His goal is 350 million cards. With every card, Shane’s courage grows. Something as simple as sending a birthday card could be enough to help Shane find peace and joy in his current circumstances.

Please take the time to send a card to Shane and make his dream become a reality. Share his story with your friends, family and co-workers. If at all possible, get your youth groups, church congregations, employees, neighbours or communities to set aside a few minutes to write a thoughtful note to Shane.
With every card, Shane's smile grows.....

  1. What a sweet little boy. Thanks for pointing me to this. Can I share this post on my blog too?

  2. Oh definitely Kelley; you don't need to ask. Let's get the word out there for Shane :) He sure is a cutie.

  3. Oh God. Now I'm crying. I know two seven year olds in hospital fighting cancer and that is the same age as my daughter. So sad.

    I'll get him a card later and post on my blog over the weekend.
