Some mothers would do anything to provide for their children – including convincing that child that they have cancer!
Texas police allege that Juanita Garcia, 46, made her 7-year-old daughter believe that she was suffering from terminal cancer.
She spread the word that her daughter was dying, and then asked for donations from the public so that she could fund treatments. Several fundraisers were held before the police started asking questions.
A medical check revealed that the girl was in good health.
Garcia has been charged with exploitation of a child.
