Subject: A 7 year old cancer patient
If you delete this then shame on you!
Hi, my name is Amy Bruce. I am 7 years old, and I have a large tumor on my brain and severe lung cancer. The doctors say I will die soon if this isn't fixed, and my family can't pay the bills. "The Make A Wish Foundation" has agreed to donate 7 cents for every time this message is sent on. For those of you who send this along, I thank you so much. But for those who don't send it, I will still pray for you. Please, if you are a kind person, have a heart. Please, please, PLEASE HIT THE FORWARD BUTTON
All it takes is a quick check on Google to confirm that this is in fact a hoax and the Make A Wish foundation does not participate in chain emails. This actual email first appeared in May 2005 and nearly 2 years later it is still making the rounds.
I find it incredible that people can be so gullible when all it takes is a quick (as in 2 minutes quick) check on Google to confirm that this is a hoax. Some people shouldn't have computers let alone access to email.
The email I received had been sent to over 50 people. I wonder how many of these people have been sucked in and how many actually forwarded the email on.
[Edit] Well this says it all the originator of this chain email has this on their signature:
Licensed Avatar Master/Wizard; Qualified Rebirther; Usui & Tibetan Reiki/Isis Seichim master,healer & teacher; Practitioner for Crystal healing; Numerology; Ascension Initiations;Guidance card readings; Absent healings; Channelled meditations;Relaxation massage.

Include the Billy Connolly Chain Letter in your research.

Yes, people disconnected with reality... They are the ones quick to forward thes chain emails. And really, why a foundation would wait for emails to go around, wasting time before donating any urgently needed money?
Senseless people forwarding this. I delete, with no shame...

Judging by how much it would cost to do brain surgery in the US, at 7 cents a recipient, poor little Amy certainly wouldn't have lasted long enough. I also didn't realise severe lung cancer was "fixable". Perhaps the originator could have used some of his expert healing mojo instead (remote healing??).
