Storyline

"The Miracle of the Cards" is based on the true story of Marion Shergold and her son, Craig, an eight-year-old English boy who had a brain tumor. Several events convinced Marion that God was leading her to a cure for Craig and that the get-well cards he was receiving had the power to keep him alive, so she launched a worldwide campaign to break the Guinness record for receiving the most get-well cards. At the time, the world record seemed an impossible 1,000,265, but Craig received over 350 million cards from all over the world. Against the advice of her doctors, Marion followed one of those cards to America for Craig's miraculous cure. Written by Robert Woods

Nice, pleasant film.
16 January 2003 | by (Bowling Green, KY) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film. Although it isn't "oscar-worthy" it is a wonderful, delightful film about faith and hanging onto it. I felt the best attraction about this film was actor Peter Wingfield. He pretty much carried this film. Without his brilliant acting it wouldn't have been quite as good. It is a nice film overall to watch and enjoy.
