A real example of the eRumor as it has
appeared on the Internet:
to all my friends and family,
I felt compelled to spread this story about son's best friend, Sam who
is 8 (on the left in the photo above). He is in MAJOR need of Prayer.
The following story is what his mother Cindy (we are in MOPS together)
Our son Sam is a wonderful young man who is 8 years old. He will be 9 in
January. He is goTuesday, June 14, 2011 03:44:27 PMing
into the 3rd grade in Reynoldsburg , Ohio . Sam had been having some
pain in his right knee most of this summer (2009). As the pain increased
we realized that something might be wrong and we made an appointment for
him to see an Orthopedist on 8/10/09. At this doctors appointment an
X-ray was done of Sam's leg/knee and it showed that there was a mass
that the doctor believed to be cancerous. Samuel went into the hospital
just a few days later for a series of tests. He received a cat scan, MRI,
and also a full body scan. Our family met with the pediatric oncologist
the following day and Samuel was diagnosed with a type of cancer called
Osteosarcoma (stage 4). The cancer is in his right knee and it has also
spread to both of his lungs. This is an agressive type of cancer and it
will be treated with agressive forms of chemo. We are asking everyone to
please lift up our litle boy Samuel Gordon Bish in prayer. We pray for
healing!! We serve a mighty God and we know that HE can heal Sam if that
is his will for Sam's life. Please be prayer warriors along with our
family as Sam starts this very difficult journey in his young life.
Today's date is August 16th, 2009 and all this has happened in 6 days.
His first appointment was on Monday the 10th and by Friday the 14th he
was in the hospital getting his Chemo-port put in his chest and a biopsy
I figured if an animated woman walking around the world for cancer can
get passed to millions, then so can this story.
PLEASE KEEP THIS GOING TO YOUR CONTACTS IN YOUR ADDRESS BOOK! SAM
CAN NEVER GET ENOUGH PRAYERS. WE PRAY FOR HEALING AND PEACE FOR HIS
FAMILY. . .There are also 2 younger sisters.
