Here is what i found on the 8 year old boy named Max.

Notes:

There is an 8 yr old little boy at WVU Children`s Hospital that has lukemia that will not be able to return home for Christmas. He was asked what he wants for Christmas and all he wants is 1 million Christmas cards. They can be addressed to Max c/o WVU Children`s Hospital 1 Medical Center Drive, Morgantown, WV 26506. I think it would be great if we could make this little boys wish come true.

This request for Christmas cards is, from what we can tell, a genuine message. However, according to the Facebook page of the WVU Childrens Hopsital, the patient in question, Max, is being treated at a nearby hosptial so the mail should be directed there instead.
According the Facebook page, mail should instead be sent to -

St. Luke Church, 19 Jo Glen Drive, Morgantown, WV 26508. Attn. Max

This is not the first time such requests have appeared - Nathan Elfrink also requested cards be sent during 2009 before he passed away the year after.
Despite this request being true, good intentioned Internet users are advised to always check the validity of such requests first, as many hoaxes also take on this format (the recent requests for dog treats to be sent to Afghanistan proved not to be genuine) and many such requests - due to their nature - sadly become outdated, yet continue to circulate.

It is not recommended to circulate the above message with the incorrect address attached. If you do want to help, append the correct St. Luke Church address instead.

and this is the site i found it on
