This baby has the worst cancer in his head and the family doesnt have enough money to pay for all of it so CNN and Facebook are agreeing to pay half the expenses so *Please Don`t Ignore , Please Help*
1 Like = 20$
1 comment = 50$
1 share = 100$

This image showing a child with an abnormally large head is circulating Facebook along with the assertion that Facebook and CNN will pay for the medical expenses for the child if you Like, Comment or Share on the photo.

However the assertions are entirely false, and the continuation of a much older hoax that asserts companies such as Facebook will donate money based on the amount of interaction certain content receives on Facebook. However this is completely untrue. Facebook does not donate money to children or charities based on the number of shares or likes an image receives.

Past hoaxes in this genre have been known to use photos of sick or disabled children in hospital stolen elsewhere on the Internet, and we discuss these hoaxes here.

It is vital that Facebook users neither Like nor Share the photos. These hoaxes are commonly used by ”Likewhore Pages” to help accumulate fans. Such Pages are often used to make money for scammers who sell the Facebook Pages. We discuss how these scams work here.

Facebook never donate money based on this sort of interaction so never share or like these photos.

As for the child depicted in the photo we are currently unaware of his/her condition, but we do know that the photo is being used without the permission of the child’s guardians and that no money is given towards the child for interacting with the photo.
