Three people have been accused of allegedly accepting money from donors after claiming they were family members of a little girl with cancer, and it was discovered that they allegedly have no relation to the child or the fundraising efforts for her recovery.

The family of a 6-year-old girl named Kaylee who was diagnosed with a type of cancer called Wilms’ tumor, which mostly affects youngsters and is found in the kidneys, started a fundraiser in hopes of gaining financial support for their daughter’s medical needs. A campaign that they dubbed “Kicking it with Kaylee” was created by the child’s relatives to raise awareness of their cause.

People in Syracuse, New York, and some surrounding neighborhoods reported that they were visited at their homes by three people who said they were Kaylee’s family members that presented a picture of the child when asking for donations. It is believed that the photo was taken from an online news site and being used to help convince people that they were legitimate proponents for the cause, and donators allegedly gave hundreds of dollars in support.
