NKU Sorority Girl Lied About Having Cancer To Trick People Into Giving Her Money
We all know how desperate for money college students are, but this is beyond low. A former Northern Kentucky Delta Zeta member was recently caught up after almost a year of lying about having stage 3 cancer in exchange for people’s attention and hard-earned money.
Not only did she convince her sorority sisters that she was seriously ill, she also convinced her parents as well. From June 2016 to March 2017 everyone close to this girl thought she had cancer. A benefit was even put together by her sorority to help raise money for stomach cancer. They are still going to have the benefit despite the fact that that their now former sorority sister was lying about having cancer the whole time.
That desperate for money? Donate plasma or work as a bartender/server like a normal college kid. Don’t scam others out of their money.
After hearing about their daughter and her continuous lies to raise money, her parents issued the following statement.
“Our daughter is a caring, loving yet troubled young woman who is currently undergoing treatment for issues that precipitated this pretense and the results of it.
Like others in the community, we, too, believed our daughter was seriously ill with cancer and we are all searching for answers as to why she would participate in this deception. During the time that funds were being raised for Kelly, she did not live with us and we did not actively promote any fundraising efforts.
Our family, friends, and the good people of this community who generously gave time and money to this cause are anxious to learn what happened to the money that was raised for Kelly. We do not know the answer to this question because we have never had access to these funds. However, we are cooperating with law-enforcement officials and we are hopeful they can help answer this question.
At this point, our main concern is with our daughter, who thankfully is away from this situation and getting the help she needs.”
