Forward Emails for Cancer Victim Little LaNisha Jackson-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
Eight-year-old LaNisha Jackson has lung cancer from second-hand smoke as well as a tumor from repeated beatings. If you forward the email about her, the Make-A-Wish Foundation will donate 7 cents per email for her medical care.
This is a hoax that has caused a great deal of frustration for the good folks at the Make-A-Wish foundation. There is no cancer victim named LaNisha Jackson and Make-A-Wish does not participate in any fund raising involving forwarded emails. Their mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses.
