    I posted this thread about a year ago - and there was lots of positive thoughts sent to this little boy, struggling so hard.

    He's stood firm....he's still here, the tumor is down to 5 centimetres....he can lay on his side again, and his legs can touch each other again....that used to be impossible because of the tumor before.

    Finished radiation and chemo.....but - he's sliding really badly right now. His kidneys are giving up.

    I know nobody gives a fuck about me, and nobody knows this little boy - but please, for the love of god and all things good - I have NO idea if good thoughts and prayers REALLY make a difference....on the chance that they do....PLEASE send them out.

    It's a fucking comedy message board, Lori. How am I supposed to come out of a thread about fat people at WalMart into a goddamned thread about a goddamned dying kid?!? :mad:

    I don't know what else to do except good thoughts, and ask others to, King.

    It's fucking heartbreaking. We've been to see him in Sick Kids, our town has had fundraisers for the family - he went downhill really badly today.

    I'll take the ass-kicking here, if good thoughts make a difference, and people send them.

    Can anyone explain to me what the motivation is on Twitter when someone tweets a celebrity and says, "My nephew is in the hospital fighting terminal brain cancer. Can I get a retweet?" ? What's the logic?

    Some people believe that positive thoughts and good energy help.

    I'm never sure if I'm one of them, but I send them every time.

    I had "rake" done on my son, when his chances were slim to nil.

    Fucked if I know if that's what helped him make it or not (really still don't know wtf it is).....but why not try?

    there's power in a common cause, knowing you're not alone, that people can stand together for the good of someone who is suffering, whether they know them or not. Humanity KOC

    I believe this too.

    It's how AA works for people. Or Al-anon. There's a lot of power in group thinking.
