Seattle Woman Claims to Have Beaten Cancer and Gets Caught Lying

Tracy Dart, who is in her 40s, had raised over $400,000 for the Susan G. Komen charity when it was discovered she never had cancer. The problem is she claimed that she had beaten breast cancer three times, faking the illness for at least five years.

She also created Team Tracy that did fundraising on behalf of her and the Susan G. Komen foundation.

She had previously told the West Seattle Herald that she was diagnosed in 2008 and undergoing chemotherapy while her hair fell out. She said she experienced fatigue, as well as hot and cold flashes. Yet, she went to the doctor for a liver problem, and no cancer records were found.

She first participated in Komen's three-day walk in memory of her aunt who died of breast cancer when she was 55. A member of Team Tracy, Matthew Welch, said "I wouldn't say we're angry. I would say she needs help, and I hope she gets it."

Komen told the West Seattle Herald, "We are sad for Tracy and her family and hope that she, and they, will find healing in the days ahead."
