Origins:   This plea for prayers on behalf of an ailing child hit the Internet in late September 2011. While the earliest versions made no mention of who was requesting the prayers, slightly later iterations stated "I ask for a prayer for my great neice Jordon Mills."

The "Chrons" is likely Crohn's Disease, a lifelong inflammatory disease that almost always strikes the bowels, although it can turn up anywhere along the digestive route, from the mouth to the anus. While it can afflict people of every age, its usual age of onset is mid-teens to late 20s. Crohn's is rarely fatal, but there have been deaths from it, including those of children under the age of ten.

As to whether there is a Crohn's sufferer named Jordon Mills, nothing has so far surfaced to confirm the existence of such a child. Moreover, the text of the appeal for good wishes was lifted from earlier prayer requests on behalf of ailing children whose existence still can't be confirmed.

Comparing the Jordon Mills prayer request's "SHE IS IN INTENSIVE CARE. PLEASE POST THIS ON YOUR WALL FOR AT LEAST AN HOUR; I WOULD DO IT FOR YOUR BABY GIRL. LET'S GO FOR A MIRACLE!!!" with the Harly Andrews prayer request (child hit by a car):
