PHOENIX – An Arizona woman wanted to enhance her bust, but she couldn’t afford breast augmentation surgery -- so she allegedly started lying about having a deadly disease so people would donate to her ‘cause,’ MyFoxPhoenix reports.
Jami Lynn Toler has been accused of telling her mom, grandparents and co-workers that she had breast cancer and needed a double-mastectomy and reconstructive surgery -- and she didn't have insurance.
'Try to encourage her. Give her hope.'
- Hospice Chaplain Thomas Bettcher
She said it would cost about $7,800.
Toler is also accused of reaching out to Hallmark Hospice for help.
The Hospice organized fundraising events, and the public donated. They ended up raising more than $8,300 -- even more than Toler needed for her fake double-mastectomy.
"Try to encourage her. Give her hope. Give her something to see a purpose through this," said Thomas Bettcher, Hospice Chaplain.
Then a mysterious debit to a well-known cosmetic surgeon’s office for a "supra-spectral breast augmentation" was discovered.
The surgeon went on record to say that Toler had no cancerous masses in her breasts, and that she had performed a standard boob job.
