Jennifer Halford has been charged with fraud after police say she raised money to help her fight the cancer she never had. The 34-year-old allegedly received donations – mostly in the form of gift certificates, food and some cash – for her cancer treatments and other expenses. Global News spoke with several mothers who said they met Halford at Jamie’s Preschool, a place for children facing cancer, blood disorders, organ transplants and other critical illnesses.

Halford is facing seven counts of fraud under $5,000. Police said the investigation is ongoing and additional charges could be laid. Halford is currently out on bail.
