Richmond Woman Fakes Cancer To Raise Money

Every year I’m proud to say that I take part in the Relay for Life. I walk the track at The School of Deaf in Rome New York and help raise money for our team “Today’s Hope, Tomorrow’s Promise”. I would never in a million years guess that someone could be such a horrible of a person and fake cancer. A Richmond woman did just that , she was fined $100 after admitting she faked cancer to raise money.

Martha Ann Nicholas pleaded guilty on Monday to two misdemeanor charges of obtaining money by false pretenses. Besides the fine, she was ordered by a judge to not take part in any charitable causes and placed on five years’ probation.

A 12-month jail sentence was suspended, the newspaper reported. The Mechanicsville woman had claimed at rallies that she was a cancer victim. Her attorney, Sam Simpson, said Nicholas has made restitution of $1,700, the total she had collected for herself. Nicholas had been suffering from a psychosomatic condition that made her believe she had a cancer-like illness, Simpson said.

I’m sorry but I don’t believe her excuse at all of “suffering from a psychosomatic condition”. Her condition is being a tool and lying. It’s that simple right? No she has a mental condition and gets off Scott free. It’s funny that she was able to plan a huge event with family for her condition if she was suffering from a mental condition.
