Craig Shergold Postcards
This is a true story that can't be stopped. When seven year old Craig Shergold
from England was diagnosed with an incurable brain tumor, he asked people to
enough postcards so that he could get into the Guinness Book of World Records
for the largest collection of postcards.
Miraculously, Craig lived after
an American billionaire flew him to the U.S. for surgery to remove the remains
of the tumor. Unfortunately, the legend of his request took on a life of its own,
and in the following years millions of postcards continued to be sent to his home
address despite every effort to spread the word to stop.
