in Canada by

Krysta-Lyn Williams, 30 from Calgary has been charged for faking cancer.

Donations started pouring in after she opened a GoFundMe.

Williams raised $5000 and convinced WestJet to donate her tickets to Seattle for surgery.

Via Global News:

Nicky Arsenault said she first heard about Williams battling cervical cancer last fall, but in early spring Williams allegedly told her colleagues it had returned and had spread to her major organs.

“A GoFundMe page popped up for her and said she was going to undergo surgery in Seattle,” Arsenault said. “Obviously it not being in Canada, it was really expensive, like $70,000 and they were trying to raise half that.”
