(MULVANE, Kan.) — Donna Jantzen finds joy in making blankets for kids with cancer. Her caring hands have put together dozens of blankets. Last month, she made a blanket for Warrior Eli. Jantzen found the five-year-old's story on Facebook and checked it out on Caring Bridge-- a website that allows users to share health updates with others.
"I had taken the email address from the Caring Bridge website and emailed that address, supposedly the father. And, was put in contact with the aunt, who gave this story that they live in Canada, send the blanket to her, so I did that,” Jantzen said.
Then, Mother's Day weekend, she saw a Facebook update about Warrior Eli's mom.
“She was hit head-on by a car driving too fast that crossed the center line,” Jantzen said.
The tragedy was just the beginning of shocking news for Jantzen. She later learned... Warrior Eli's sad story may be a hoax.
