Paige Lane, the Seriously Ill 5 year old Girl Who Wants Cards Sent to Her-
Summary of eRumor:
The 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 possible.
Paige 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.
