The Miracle of the Cards


Craig Shergold is an eight-year-old boy in England who is diagnosed with cancer. During his treatment, his mother decides to break the Guinness World Record for receiving greeting cards, in an effort to give Craig something to strive for, something that has never been done before. More than 1.3 million cards are received from around the world. An editor chooses an American newspaper reporter, because he is a skeptic, to investigate the “real facts.” He travels to England and spends time with the family and observes the events firsthand.

Dove Review

“The Miracle of the Cards” is a heartwarming true story of love and faith in the face of death — not only from the family members, but also the doctors who treat Craig, the thousands of people involved in the attempt to break the Guinness World Record, and the reporter himself.

This story shows Craig’s emotions and faith and those of his mother through a very trying time in his life. He and his mother retell their story to a reporter, who does not believe in God, about Craig’s fight against cancer and the cards and prayers from around the world that encouraged Craig and his family to persevere. This film tells the courageous story of a young man who received a miracle though prayer.

We are proud to award “The Miracle of the Cards” the Dove “Faith-Friendly” Seal for all ages.
