A friend said her 4 year old nephew got diagnosed with cancer on Friday. She said he was at St. Jude's in Minnesota. I thought St. Jude's was in St. Louis, Missouri not Minnesota unless they have more then one. She then said he was having surgery on Monday for his cancer. I said oh I thought he had Leukemia what kind of surgery and she said surgery on his lungs. Another red flag went up and I said ok. She then said he passed away today at 2 pm. I said I am so sorry he went down quick. She said yes he has had it for awhile. I then asked so the doctors missed it and she said yes I guess so. Shortly after this she said I need to go I am crying so I let her go.

My question you don't have surgery on your lungs for Leukemia do you since it is a blood cancer? Do you think she is lying? I think she might be.

I asked her if she knew when his funeral would be and where so I could send flowers and she said she misunderstood he didn't pass away he had surgery. She lied to me.

My grandpa had lung cancer and they removed some portions of his lungs during surgery. I don't know about lukemia though. I wouldn't bring it up again unless she does.

Two very simple google searches will give you the answers to this. She may be lying, but both are very possible. Yes there is more than one St Jude, and there is a theraputic surgery that involves the lungs. Google is your friend.

Thank you. I hope that what she is saying isn't a bunch of lies. I would never want to a kid to go through that but damn, to lie about something like that!

Has this friend lied to you in the past? Is she generally untrustworthy?
