Forward an Email, Get Medical Care for Kalin from Alabama-



Summary of eRumor: 
This email says it is from Katie Relek of Alabama.  It says her son, Kalin, is 7 years old and was struck by a car in front of her home.  She says he’s alive, but in serious condition, has internal bleeding, and needs surgery.  She doesn’t have health insurance but has arranged with a company called “BCC Inc.” that for every email about Kalin that is forwarded by the readers, five cents will be donated toward his medical costs.

The Truth:

This is a hoax.  No verifying information about this story has been found and there is no way for an organization to keep track of forwarded emails even if it wanted to donate money for them.
