An e-mail...

It just makes me weep...
> My name is Billy Evans. I am 9 years old. I am a very sick little boy.
> My mother is typing this for me, because I can't. She is crying. The
> reason she is so sad is because I'm so sick.

> I was born without a body.
> It doesn't hurt, except when I try to breathe.
> The doctors gave me an artificial body. It is a burlap bag filled with
> leaves. The doctors said that was the best they could do on account of
> us having no money or insurance.
> I would like to have a body transplant, but we need more money.
> Mommy doesn't work because she said nobody hires people who cry all the
> time. I said, "Don't cry, Mommy" and she hugged my burlap bag. Mommy
> always gives me hugs, even though she's allergic to burlap and it makes
> her sneeze and chafes her real bad.
> I hope you will help me. You can help me if you forward this e-mail to
> everyone you know. Forward it to people you don't know, too. Dr.
> Johanssen said that for every person you forward this e-mail to, Bill

> Please help me. Mommy is so sad and I want a body. I don't want my

> Please help me.
> I try to be happy, but it's hard.

> I wish that very much.
> Thank You.
