Woman who faked cancer arrested and charged

A woman who admits she faked having cancer for a charity scam has turned herself in, police say.
A Star investigation revealed that Kirilow shaved her head, plucked her eyebrows and eyelashes to make herself look like a chemotherapy patient. The ruse included attending charity events in her honour, taking cancer research donations from hundreds of people and accepting a flight to Disney World from a legitimate Toronto-based cancer-awareness organization.
