SINGER PUTS A SONG IN HEART OF AILING GIRL

Michael Jackson sent an 8-year-old girl suffering from a rare intestinal disease a check and a promise to call.

Jackson responded to a letter-writing campaign organized by schoolchildren for Mallory Cyr of Sabattus, Maine."I am sending you all my loving and caring, Mallory, along with the enclosed gift, which I hope will help nourish you and keep you strong," the singer told the girl in his letter, sent along with a check for an undisclosed amount.

Mallory suffers from microvillus inclusion, which limits her ability to eat. She receives regular intravenous feedings.
