    Women Shave Heads In Support Of Friend With Cancer, Then Learn She Was Lying

    Meaghan, 25, deceived her family and friends for more than a year, telling them she had been diagnosed with incurable cancer. She carried out the ruse even as her stepmother created a fundraising page that attracted $5,000 in donations for her, and her close friends showed support and solidarity by shaving their heads and getting matching tattoos.

    Then the truth came out — it was all a lie. Meaghan didn’t have cancer. Ultimately, Meaghan was charged with grand theft and fraud. She pleaded not guilty.

    Why would this young woman dupe the people closest to her? In the video above, she takes Dr. Phil through the moment she decided to lie about having a life-threatening disease.

    Meaghan says at the time, she was grieving the loss of four people to whom she was very close. “I think, one day, I was in a very dark place and I didn’t feel like I had that unconditional love or support, and I wanted it,” she recalls. “The thought process was just that I wanted someone to pay attention.”

    Meaghan says she first lied to her stepmother and father, and then her closest friends, who spread the word. Two months later, the news was out.

    “There’s a point at which you said, ‘This is working. It’s getting me what I want,’” Dr. Phil says.

    “I cannot every think of a time I thought those things,” Meaghan says. “But, yes. It was obvious that it was having the effect of those things that I had always wanted … I didn’t ever think in my head, Oh, this is really working. It was more of, this is something that I lied about, and I didn’t know how to stop.”

    Dr. Phil points out that this wasn’t a rash decision, like Meaghan has said before. “This was something that was premeditated, and you sustained this lie in stages over 14 months,” he says. “You could have lied your way out of the lie.”

    On Monday’s episode of Dr. Phil, Meaghan faces Chelsey, one of the close friends to whom she lied. Will Chelsey forgive Meaghan? Click here for local listings — andwatch more here.

    When someone tells you they have cancer, if you suspect they are a dirtbag, go to their doctor and get the facts.

    People are vomits. As much as a piece of shit as she is, Dr. Phil has her beat. His head is so disturbing.

    In all fairness to Meaghan, seeing as her own parents couldn't even spell her name the correct way, she's pretty much had the cards stacked against her since birth.

    This reminds me of that cunt that faked cancer to get a dream wedding a few years ago.

    That's great.

    I always laugh at people who make worthless gestures 'in support' of something or another. Or do stupid shit to 'raise awareness' of something. How does shaving your head support someone and who the hell isn't aware of something like breast cancer.

    It's really just a selfish act to make themselves feel better.

    Waste of time.

    I kind of disagree.. I think specially regarding kids, it makes them feel not left out... imagine being the only girl in your class that is bald, and now imagine a bunch of your classmates/teachers shaved their heads...

    OK, maybe with kids, I'll give you that.

    But this whole 'raising awareness' thing is a waste of time. Call it what it is: soliciting money.

    We just found out my sister has Cancer. We wish it was a lie too but unfortunately it's very real. People like this make me sick. I hope none of you have to go through something like this.

    Some people are joiners. They will shave their head at the drop of a hat if it means they're part of the group. Consider this a life lesson, joiners.
