Today's fake: woman faked her son's cancer to glom donations

An unemployed Detroit-area woman faked a cancer diagnosis for her 12-year-old son so she could solicit donations, including $7500 from a church fundraiser. As part of the scam, she shaved his head and eyebrows and drugged him so he would appear lethargic. She told him he had leukemia. She's facing fraud and child abuse charges.
