This is the second time in a couple of weeks that a prank has been associated with cancer on FML. I was just diagnosed with cancer and all I've asked for is emotional support. I can't be treated until my baby is born, due to my chronic illness that makes me too weak. I'm only 11 weeks into my pregnancy and I have to hope that the cancer won't spread more than it already has. Shame on anyone for using cancer as a prank!
BYeah that's possible - I would say it depends on the daughter though. I once knew someone who told her family that she had a new boyfriend who was "deployed" to Afghanistan so they never met him... Then, a few months later she called asking for money because he was KIA and she had to pay her bills - turns out the guy never existed and it was a ploy for money/attention from family and friends. Some people will say anything, especially if drugs are involved. I'd say the right thing to do is pay for he treatment or bills DIRECTLY if you're really suspicious, just dont fork over cash
Your mom is a complete dumbass. Who the fuck would fake having cancer? Also, wouldn't your sister have paperwork and proof of her cancer?
While is immorally wrong to fake such a thing it does happen. A few years ago a lady in the uk faked that her daughter had cancer, shaved the poor kids head and everything. She made so much money out of it. Eventually she got caught because her doctor seen her on the tv and said no that little girl does not or never has had cancer. People like that are the scum of the earth.
There was also a woman in the UK that faked cancer to get a free wedding. She didn't even tell her husband. He blew the whistle on her when she came clean after the wedding. Horrifying as it is, there seems to be a few people out there that have no issues with lying about such a dreadful disease for personal gain. That's not to say OP's sister-in-law is one of those, though.
wannabemom; I understood it as the woman claimed she had cancer and wouldn't be able to pay for her wedding due to the cost of treatments. So people felt sympathy for her and donated money to fund her wedding. They probably thought they were helping a very sick or dying woman have the wedding of her dreams while she was still healthy enough to enjoy it. She preyed upon people's tender hearts for her own selfish gain.
