  Largest Business Card collection-world record set by Brandon Rayner
 
 PHOENIX, AZ, USA -- Brandon Rayner, 10, was being treated for leukemia while collected over 900,000 business cards-setting the world record for the  Largest Business Card collection.

   As Brandon received business cards, he sorted them into stacks of 100.

   He would then put those 100 in alphabetical order based on the business name.

   
Joe Rayner, Brandon's mother, said: "I didn't think it would go this far,'' she said about her son's collection. "Ever since he was 2, he wanted to collect something. But it would only last a short period of time.''

    Brandon Rayner was an inspiration to everyone who has made contact with him or heard his story.

   “He was my little super trooper,” said Moe Rayner. Moe himself was a trooper during Desert Storm.

  On Christmas Eve, after months of chemotherapy and two bone marrow transplants, the 10-year-old Las Vegas boy who was trying to set a world record by collecting business cards died.

   His parents, Jo and Moe Rayner, were with him when he died at Phoenix Children's Hospital in Arizona, said his sister, Brittany.

   
A memorial service for Brandon will be held at 2 p.m. Friday at Canyon Ridge Christian Church, 6200 W. Lone Mountain Road, at Jones Boulevard.

   Monetary donations can be made to The Brandon Rayner Benefit Fund through the Bank of America.

  
 Donations also can be made to the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation and Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Southern Nevada.
