If you want a rainbow,you have to put up with the rain.
Cancer is a serious topic and its pretty low to use it to play on others sympathies and an insult to those who really have been faced with it. Any of you who want the inconsistencies pointed out in detail can pm me. All I can say is dont waste another minute worrying about it.
If this is true I hope the girl gets well and lives a normal healthy life.
But I must admit I do not believe the story. On another site I am a member of there was this girl. And she had one terrible thing after another happen every week. And to top that off she was pregnant. Boyfriend was in a terrible car accident at one point. Then in one week while pregnant fell broke her wrist, fell hit her stomach, and then fell again and did something else. A few more weeks past then there was the bomb shell. The boyfriend came on and said for days she was having unexplained stomach pains. Finally went to the doctor and went into pre-term labor and died after delivery of the baby. This person went as far as showing pictures of a baby that was not his. The pictures were not even of a pre-term baby but a much older one. This person never asked for donations but when people offered donations for the baby he did not turn it down. Long story short some became suspious and did some research. This girl (id the girl even existed) never died. Was not listed in any obits. nothing. It was all a hoax. And when the guy was confronted he left quickly.
People do fake these things. No one can really say why. Most times it seems they do these things for attention. They wanna see how much their friends care for them so they make these things up. As horrible as it is to make these things up people do it all the time sadly.
So yeah call me jaded but I do not believe the story that was presented in that thread.
I wandered what happened. I have been reading about her, but I don't ever get on the thread so I just read. My heart went out to them,it would be shame if they were really lying, but wouldn't we all feel bad if it was true.
I am glad that you are now trying to tell the truth. But I still have a question and lingering doubts on all of this. My question is are you really in remission so soon or is that another embellishment?
Thank you for your honesty. I know it had to take a lot of courage to speak up and tell the truth. Just remember, you want people to care about who you really are. I think you're worth it, so why short change yourself?
"Don't accept your dog's admiration as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful".
Cancer is nothing to use for sympathy, it sickens me that you used your diagnosis to make up stories for attention. My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer 2 years ago, after a mastectomy, and chemo (which was difficult because of her long list of other health problems) many types of treatment could not be used on her. It was a long battle that will never be over as she will never be considered cured. This whole thing just pisses me off - for lack of a better expression.
Though being a nurse, once you got to a certain point, I knew it was all a line of crap and chose to longer be drawn in and post. Did you really think that no one in the medical field is a memeber here and would know you were lying?
Thankyou for coming clean, but it changes my whole opinion on your posts, past and future now.
People are like slinky's, not really good for much. But its still fun to push them down the stairs.
I think it took a lot of guts for you to come on and apologize. I hope that you use this as a learning experience and realize that you don't have to embellish the details of your illness to make people care about you. I hope you continue to make progress with this illness.
I wonder if some other members who were VERY critical of the ones that questioned the details of this story will also step up and apologize.
I do say that I am sorry to Pope. I am sure she understands why I felt the way I did after I PM'd her to explain. I just hate seeing anyone torn down the way that Lauren was. Like I told Pope I just lost a family friend to cancer and I didn't believe he had it. I thought he was not telling the truth. His story was not adding up. but two months later he died. I wasn't making that mistake again. I can't tell him that I am sorry, but I can tell Pope that I am truly sorry.
Life isn't like a box of chocolates . . it's more like a jar of jalapenos.
I will step up and apologise to anyone if my statements about belief in miracles and The Lord's Wonders has offended them. That includes Pope, et al. I will not change one speck of those beliefs. These things are possible and do happen. That said, let me ask that WE ALL don't turn this thread into a judgemental series of recriminations against rescuepups and/or each other. None of us, ME included is without fault. Remember that The Lord said that all sin is sin, not just the big ones. I for one, will still pray for rescuepups and appreciate her honesty. Surely, I will pray for any and all on this forum who I think needs it. Again, if I have offended anyone here, I am sorry, that was Not my intent.
If you had breast cancer, you would not be wasting your time away on an internet forum. Women with breast cancer don't make up lies about it. I find anything you say hard to believe. Its typical for a liar to make up more lies to cover up the original lie.
I am disgusted.

Whether "rescuepups!" does indeed have cancer or not it's obvious she's "not well" & in that respect hopefully all our prayers will help heal her, whether it be her body or her soul.
I also firmly believe my God is a loving & compassionate God & if our prayers were not needed by "rescuepups!" I believe God redirected our prayers to one who may have no one to reach out to but is in desperate need of healing.

i can't believe u would play on peoples sympathy like that. i do realize u have said u were sorry but do understand some people do not take to kindly to being jerked around like that. i hope that if you are really and truely sick with breast cancer that you do get better and that god does not punish you for tricking us all like that. God bless
I have had family/friends struck with cancer, and they don't sit around and mope all day. They live their life like they did before they had cancer. Regular things like shopping, cooking, and chatting on the computer. They don't want to think of the disease, once chemo or radiation treatments are done for the day, they dont go cry to themselves, or do especially special things to make themselves feel better. They hang out with their friends and family, take care of their kids, do housework (if they are well enough).
Also, my bfs grandma was full of cancer, on her deathbed, hopeless. The family decided one night that the next morning they were going to take her off the respirator and let her die peacefully (she could still breathe on her own, but no help would be administered if she died). The next morning, as they walked in to give their last goodbyes, what did they see?? Grandma sitting in her chair asking what was going on, and why was everyone here. She was at home within the next three days. Sometimes things that can't be explained by anything but ones faith. God healed my bfs grandma and she lived another year and a bit. Enough to sell her house, make sure her kids were out of debt, and buy Christmas presents for the whole family, kids/grandkids and she died in October.
I'm just trying to say that before you jump to conclusions, put yourself in someone elses shoes. Try thinking from both positions instead of being stubborn.
Think that you are told you have cancer. What would you do? Feel sorry for yourself? Probably. Would you want some sort of attention? Most Likely.Would you want to talk about it? Probably. Would you change your entire lifestyle because you were told you have cancer? Would you stop doing regular things or would you keep living your life, fighting it? I know that if I was stuck in isolation, I'd be bored. I'd ask for a laptop.
