Georgia Nurse Arrested for Faking Cancer

Mary Bennett, 29, is a Georgia nurse who was arrested for allegedly receiving $25,000 in free trips, donations and gifts for a faked cancer diagnosis.

She said she was first diagnosed with Stage IV ovarian cancer in 2013. She said she was laid off from her job, while sharing her struggles on social media. Bennett, from Cumming, also wrote about her dream of fulfilling her bucket list. People then started paying for her to go on a hot air balloon ride, skydiving and a trip to New Orleans.

One of her fundraisers paid for her trip to Houston, Texas through $4,000 in donations so that she could receive alleged medical treatment.

Donation pages were created to help her fulfill her bucket list. One was titled, "Moving Mountains for Mary." On one Facebook page she wrote, "I just wanted to tell you all, thank you! I am so appreciative for the donations and the orders people have placed. It's certainly hard going thru cancer at any age. But for this to be the 2nd time in my short 27 years has certainly made me wiser and humbled."

On her Twitter bio, she wrote "Ovarian Cancer Survivor." In addition, she promised friends and family she would repay their donations by paying it forward through her career as a nurse. She told people the cancer had spread and she had four tumors on her brain and brainstem.

Authorities found out there was no record of Bennett receiving cancer treatment anywhere. She went so far as having her family take her to the hospital, but no one went in with her.
