>     JESSICA MYDEK IS SEVEN YEARS OLD AND IS SUFFERING FROM AN ACUTE AND
>     VERY RARE CASE OF CEREBRAL CARCINOMA.  THIS CONDITION CAUSES SEVERE
>     MALIGNANT BRAIN TUMORS AND IS A TERMINAL ILLNESS.  THE DOCTORS HAVE
>     GIVEN HER SIX MONTHS TO LIVE.  AS PART OF HER DYING WISH, SHE WANTED
>     TO START A CHAIN LETTER TO INFORM PEOPLE OF THIS CONDITION AND TO SEND
>     PEOPLE THE MESSAGE TO LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST AND ENJOY EVERY MOMENT,

>     THEM TO ME.

>     The more people that receive this letter turns out to be a lot of
>     money considering how many people will get this letter and how many
>     people they, in turn, pass it on to. Please go ahead and forward it to
>     whoever you know - it really doesn't take much to help out.
