The little athletics coach who struck cancer and shaved her head to look like she was receiving chemotherapy to harass her family, is spared from prison – because it was revealed that she was even fooling her husband

  • A woman broke cancer to receive $ 2,500 in donations and to meet with Billy Slater
  • She shaved her head to pretend chemotherapy and pretended to go to the hospital
  • Her own husband and family did not know that they lied and raised money

A woman was released from court after cancer breeding and reportedly using money donated for her & # 39; treatment & # 39; to keep the scam going.

Alana Porter, 27, admitted that she has been lying for three years & # 39; and pleaded guilty to counterfeiting and uttering and one count of fraud at Bundaberg Magistrates Court on Friday.

She has booked $ 2500 from her family and various fundraising events in Bundaberg in southeast Queensland in 2016 and 2017, Bundaberg News Mail reported.

Even Ben Porter, her husband, knew she was pretending to be an illness, and the local cinema manager even organized a fundraising for his wife.

The former Little Athletics Coach shaved her head to make people think she was undergoing chemotherapy.

& # 39; I don't have cancer, I never did it. I've been living this lie for three years, & Porter had told the police.

& # 39; At that time my partner did not know that I lied to everyone.

& # 39; I only took the money from my family, I spent that money on buying presents for the sick children in the hospital. I'm glad it's all over now, because it got out of hand. & # 39;

Porter is said to have used donations to stay in a motel near a hospital in Brisbane, where she told people she was being treated.

The scammer forged a letter from an oncologist who claimed that her husband would have emotional anxiety because of her diagnosis and directed it at Reading Cinemas.

She met NRL legend Billy Slater and received a signed Melbourne Storm sweater & # 39; under the illusion that she was dying of a rare cancer & # 39 ;, the court heard.

Her & # 39; ignorant & # 39; husband, Mr Porter, initially received similar allegations, but these were dropped last month.

Porter walked away after her six-month prison sentence had been completely suspended for two years.
