Another cancer phony has been exposed. As is often the case, this one chose a blood cancer.

38 year-old Kimberlie Gustwiller of McComb, Ohio, is alleged to have swindled several thousand dollars from donors in order to "gain financial support." The donors were under the impression that McComb was suffering from "Stage IV non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma."

She has been charged with theft and was arraigned in Bowling Green Municipal Court by video from the Wood County jail.

Investigators got a subpoena for the woman's medical records and found no evidence that she had been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma or any cancer.

An organization called the North Baltimore Eagles had planned an October 20 benefit to raise money for Gustwiller. According to the Toledo Blade, they intend to go on with the event but will donate the money to a "truly deserving" cause.
