CLARK COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) - Michelle Mundy admitted her crime to a judge Tuesday morning.
She was accused of lying about having Lymphoma in order to receive almost $6,000 in donations starting in November 2012.
Beth Robey is a cancer survivor and can't believe someone would do this. "Somewhat angry and very sad. I am just sad at the whole situation. I don't know how you can truly fake a cancer," said Robey.
Robey said this hits too close to home. "I was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer. I had biopsies, surgery and some more surgery and I started my chemo," said Robey.
Robey said her faith in Go, and the Springfield Regional Cancer Center helped keep her in remission for the more than five years.
She is the event chair for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign which is part of the American Cancer Society.
2 NEWS wanted to know was it better to donate to organizations like the American Cancer Society or directly to an individual fighting the disease.
"I just encourage people to be more wise. If they have a feeling that something's not right that they investigate just a little bit," said Robey.
As for Mundy, the judge ordered her to pay $5,750 dollars. She is scheduled to be sentenced September 24.
2 NEWS reached out to Jon Doughty, Mundy's attorney, to see if Mundy would want to speak on her own behalf, but we did not hear back.
