Summary of eRumor: Jeff
deLeon has lung cancer from second hand smoke as well as a tumor from

and the Make-A-Wish foundation says they do not participate in these kinds of
appeals. They specialize in granting the wishes of terminally ill
children. Also, there is no way for any organization to know whether
you have forwarded emails to others or how many. Also, the closing
guilt-trip to people who don't forward it is common in other, similar
hoaxes of dying or sick children who are asking for emails to be forwarded
on their behalf.
