  • I think this is a sad story about a woman who felt she had to lie to get something she didn't want to pay for. My mom had cancer my son had cancer they survived but its hard enough to have for real let alone after someone pretends to.

  • In my hometown a Mom & Grandma faked their dd/grandchild had cancer. even shaved her head and were drugging her to seem sick. They got thousands in donations before the dad noticed the Dr his wife mentioned wasnt an Oncologist (cancer specialis). Liar!

  • Wow...this saddens me that people do this. I do not have cancer but I do have a illness that just progressively gets worse and there is no cure...there is no way in hell I understand why someone would want to fake this type of misery.
