If it didn't suck then it wouldn't be here.

Ok honestly "that sucks" is starting to become the new "first" and it's pissing everyone off... Either come up with an original comment or stfu and gtfo!

See button above, #1. It says "I agree, your life sucks".

Why would she fake it?

More importantly, how?

We officially need a follow up on this one.

1) she wanted attention 2) she wanted the money 3) she's in the illuminati and this is some conspiracy about hippies in Texas 4) the doctors made a mistake 5) she was bored and felt like it

"She was bored and felt like it." What else can an old woman do for fun?

^6) She's a con-woman!... My jaw dropped when I read this FML. Faking a serious illness isn't a joke. One day, when she gets an awful disease or cancer, no one will believe her.

Normally I say respect elderly people, but this is an exception. Go to her house, demand the money back.

If you tell everyone else in your family about it and you need the money, they'll take your side and help you get the money from her.

There's been plenty of people who've done things like this before. Look it up. Teachers, health care professionals, normal every day people that you would never guess would pull some crap like this.

I agree with #4, doctors check to see if the patient has cancer... maybe she forged the documents that said she had it. I truly hope you find a way to get your money back. best of luck op :)

I doubt OP asked for documents from her grandmother. "I have cancer and can't pay for the treatments :,(" "Ok, I'll help you... After I see documented proof of your devastating ailment." I doubt OP even considered involving the hospital, because, well, it's grandma.

Because she wants the money for herself?

7) Saying its "fake" so that people stop worrying about her amd that in fact, her cancer is untreatable and is expected to die soon.

"If you need the money"? Hell, no. Get it back regardless! :P

This is one of the only times I will actually agree with this. Get a lawyer and go get her. That's so messed up!

I wouldn't consider someone family if they fucked me over like that. If a family member needs money, they can ask.

Evil grandma strikes again!

What is it with FML and evil grandmas?

Well, no one's going to submit an FML that goes, "Today my adorable, 95-year-old Nana knitted me a sweater and gave me a butterscotch candy," are they?

No, no. They would. It would just get denied.

I hate butterscotch candy. What a bitch!

How does one fake cancer? How did she trip all the doctor's tests?! Do we have a modern-day Houdini on our hands? Find out everything on next week's episode.

In my opinion I believe that SOME (not all) Doctors just don't care and just want money. That's why they put you on pills instead of curing, because they get money. They send you to specialists for more money...

40 - It's also possible that their magic wands are malfunctioning, so they fall back on the pills to do the curing in the meantime.

Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!

I've heard you can fake leukemia by taking mercury in small doses: the symptoms are practically the same :/ And if not law and order lied to me

83-- wouldn't they get real sick by trying to fake sick?

acting sick and saying you have some illness requires no doctor

#64, Steve Wilkos! Or Judge Mathis.

Well you can tell someone something that's not true. I believe it's commonly referred to as lying.

At least your a good granddaughter <3

I'd prefer not to be taken advantage of, even if it's family. Yes, I'd help a family member in need, ONLY when they actually need it and I know that they'd do the same for me if I ever needed it. Who knows, that might've been OP's life savings.

#69- Well, it did say it was her life's income.

#9 French speaker made a mistake ;) #69 Reading OP's FML, she thought that her Grandma was sick, she learned the truth long after. In the same case I'll spent all my savings too according to my HEART (and I'll surely be angry after knowing the truth). Doing nothing is just like being a selfish b*tch. That's why I said at least she's a good granddaughter <3

The elderly are the source of all evil.

Huh, and here I thought it was politicians.

arent most politicians somewhat old

The elderly often have the highest voter turnout, they elect the politicians.

threer 30

Some people just want to see the world burn...

This is one of the worst FML's I've ever seen. Why in the hell would anyone fake cancer?!

Some lady faked it because she was poor and used the donations to pay for her wedding

I saw a news story about a teacher who faked having cancer for the money people gave her to help pay the bills. There was another news story on a someone who said their little child had cancer and made a Facebook page that everyone passed around the link for on Facebook so they would get tons of donations. So disgusting!

I think part of me just died inside. That's so horrible.

This is by far the shittiest thing I have ever heard of a grandparent doing to their grandchild. Hopefully your reaction when she admitted she had been lying to you will cause her to start trying to possibly reimburse you for your grandiose efforts. So sorry this happened to you!

Anyone who goes through that much trouble to get money sure as hell aint gonna be sorry about it.
