    I went to Scopes to make sure that this was not an Internet hoax and found that although the story is real, as of December 15th the parents have requested people to stop sending cards as they can't keep up with it all.

    Here's the link: http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/medical/elfrink.asp

    The parents ask that people make a donation in Nate's name instead to help other children. The suggested St. Jude's Research Hospital or the hospice program at Nationwide Children's Hospital, both of which provided care to Nate.

    It was a nice thought, though.
