From Redditor u/wow_pretty_colors:
My mom has custody of my sister's daughters because my sister abandoned them. My sister doesn't ask about them. Doesn't try to visit them. Doesn't call them.
Surprisingly, my mom got a call from my sister on the oldest daughter's fifth birthday. Unfortunately, it wasn't to wish happy birthday... it was to announce she had stage four duodenum cancer. Which was upsetting, obviously.
Only my sister didn't act sick. She acted excited about all the concern. She never went to the doctors. And people started to catch on.
About a year later, after people started calling her out on her inconsistencies, she put on her Facebook that she had been feeling sick all week. She puked twice that morning and went to the hospital. And the doctor declared her cancer to be gone. She... puked up... her cancer...
Of course some [people] commented on her status congratulating her for being cancer-free. My comment was deleted, though. Something to the effect of, "Really? You puked up cancer? Why the hell would you take attention away from your daughter's birthday with this sh*t?"
