Business Card for 10-Year-Old Boy Battling Leukemia

Posted by -edz- on 10:28 PM in

I’m sure some of you have heard the case of Brandon Rayner. I only knew about his story at my work last Sunday. He is a 10-year-old kid who has an acute illness. He is a bright and bubbly kid who survived a brain tumor about a year ago. Unfortunately, he was recently diagnosed with Leukemia.

This little boy has 2 final wishes. He is in search for a bone marrow donor match that would give him the miracle of another life. And a simple wish of setting a world record as the one with most business cards ever collected. For the past two years he has been collecting business cards from 3 states in the U.S. He currently has about 18,000 and is asking every one’s help to eventually reach 150,000. He is hoping to get some from outside the U.S.

KVBC/DT Las Vegas reported that Brandon’s collection also serves a practical purpose. “Because if I ever need to call someone, I have their card,” Brandon said.

Brandon’s request is a simple wish that we can all take part of. If you’d like to add to his card collection, please send your card (or piles of unused business cards) by August 15 to:

Brandon Rayner
Sunrise Children’s Hospital, Pediatric Oncology
3186 S. Maryland Parkway,
Las Vegas, NV 89109

(A customer told me last Sunday that Brandon’s wish is absurd. It would have been better if he requested to go to Disneyland. I told her, “It’s because Brandon thinks differently than children his age. That’s what makes him special. He wants to be part of history and leave this world with a mark. That’s why he’s doing this.”)

I live in Las Vegas and hope to meet little Brandon one of these days.
