Comment: Is Warrior Eli on Facebook a hoax? Yesterday morning, they posted
that a boy's mother died from a tragic car accident. It also said the boys
had cancer and had 10 other siblings. The mother just gave birth to a baby
girl at 11:11 PM on May 12. They also said that the father's brother was
murdered. The family asked for people to donate in the mother's name on
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation the same day she died. I thought it was a
little fishy that all these horrible things could happen to one family,
but I wanted to make sure. I can't give you to link to the Facebook Page
because it has been deleted.

Comment: A link was shared on Saturday on facebook about a child suffering
from childhood cancer whose 35 week pregnant mother was in a head on
collision on her way to work. On mothers day, it was announced that the
mother had passed away around a half hour after an emergency csection to
remove the baby. Today I went to follow up and see how the family was
doing. I could not find the link. so I googled it. I was mortified to
find the following information.

I was following this "family" through another little boys prayer site on
facebook. "I love Liam Lyon" although he is real, the family they took
time to ask for prayers for was not. I have already made that family
aware.
