Editor's Note: Since publication of this article, the paper that originally reported the story, the Knoxville News Sentinel has done additional investigation to independently verify Eric Schmitt-Matzen’s account. At the time of its initial interview, Schmitt-Matzen said he had promised to protect the identities of the child’s family and the nurse who summoned him to the hospital bedside. Although facts about his background have checked out, his story of bringing a gift to a dying child remains unverified. Ongoing reporting by the News Sentinel cannot establish whether it is accurate or inaccurate.
