Please tell me it's not a lie?

I have a close relative who in early January of this year told everyone she had late 2nd stage/early 3rd stage ovarian cancer. This was very upsetting, as you can imagine to the whole family and everyone supported her in whatever they could do. After 9 weeks she said had 3 rounds of chemo and has never lost a hair or had any down time, the day of her chemo treatments she would drive an extra 2 hours and go spend the day shopping etc. She then had no treatment for a month and then she said she was going to radiation everyday for the last 2 weeks. She asked a family member to go to her radiation treatment today with her and 30 minutes before the appointment time she called and said she was help up by the police and wouldn't have time to pick the family member up. The family member did not want her to end up going to the appointment alone again (last time a family member was going to go she said the chemo got cancelled) The family member drove to the treatment center and when she got there she asked the receptionist where to go meet up with her and the receptionist looked in her computer and told her they had no patient there by that name. When the family member later asked her about it she said she wasn't using her legal name for the treatments. This evening she has posted all over social media sites about how she has kicked cancer's butt and she has beat it. It has been 12 weeks since she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Is it possible to beat it in such a short time frame? No one has seen her take any medication or seen any medications in her home. It is so tramatic for everyone involved, no one wants to ever think someone could lie about something so terrible but the information she is giving us is not adding up, no one by that name was a patient, and the stories are not consistent, different people are told different things. Please tell me the treatments and recovery happening this way could be true!!

Re: Please tell me it's not a lie?

Something seems to be "rotten in Denmark." For one, I don't think she could say she's "beat it" in that short of time. And there are other things that just don't stack up. Why would she not use her legal name? And she circumvented having relatives accompany her. This sounds like it could very well be an attention seeking and possibly money seeking scam.

I was afraid that was the news I was going to hear! I am so sad!
