for 4-year old Madison Who Has Cancer-Truth!
Summary of the eRumor: A prayer request for a 4-year old girl who has
been diagnosed with "non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, stage 4." The email
says her father works for a temp service, the mom works part time at a
family-owned business, and that they do not have insurance.
The Truth: TruthOrFiction.com contacted Madison's great-aunt, Jan
Kuhn, who confirmed that this story was true. Madison is
Madison Lehman. Her parents are Keith and Ty Lehman. They live
near Mansfield, Ohio.
She said Madison has been diagnosed with Berkets non-Hodgkin lymphoma,
stage 4 and that she had large abdominal tumors and cancer in the bone
marrow. Madison was being given chemo therapy and as of 5/31/08 her
tumors were shrinking.
Jan asked for continued prayer for Madison whom she described as "Adorable
with long blonde spiral curls and huge bright blue eyes."
A real example of the eRumor as it has
appeared on the Internet:
Hello everyone, 5/22/2008
This is not a forward, this is coming from me. My next door neighbor,
asked me for a prayer request, i can't help but to email this, cause I
can't get it off my mind. Her little cousin who is only 4 yrs old has been
diagnosed with non Hodgkin's lymphoma, stage 4. The little girls name is
Madison , her parents do not have insurance. Her father works for a temp
service and her mom works part time at a family owned business. Local
people know the place its Kuhn's Costumes. All I am asking for, for this
family is one huge prayer for this little girl and her family.
She was playing on her swing set and feel off of it and landed on her
tummy, it hurt her very bad, so they took her to the hospital. They didn't
think to look for cancer, she was there for a fall. Well her grandma works
at the hospital and she mentioned that her tummy bulged out, more so then
normal. So they ran some tests and found she was in stage 4 of this
Writing this is hard, for this to happen to anyone is horrible, but for a
little child. This is to close to home for me. I have a little girl close
to her age, and nieces and nephews. This is why I just really really want
all the angels with this precious child. And all children.
Please keep her and her family in your prayers. Amen!
