Lane, the Seriously Ill 5 year old Girl Who Wants Cards Sent to Her-
Summary of eRumor:
story that is circulated says that 5 year old Paige
Lane is seriously ill and wants as many greeting cards to be sent to her as
Lane is a real person and in 1999 was five years old and seriously ill.
She never asked for a collection of cards, however, and the deluge of mail that
has resulted from this eRumor has caused a lot of headaches for her family.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation did help grant her wish to visit Disney world, but
somehow the story started circulating that she was requesting a record number of
greeting cards, which was not the case.
