      I heard the most shocking news imaginable. For the last year my whole town and actually people from all over the country have been rallying around a 4, now 5 year old with metastatic colon cancer only to find out it was all a hoax on her mother’s part. The mom was arrested and so far has been charged with felony child endangerment and another felony for giving her cannabis oil. This girl had a Facebook page showing her bald with a feeding tube in her nose. She even had a bucket list so she was told she had cancer and was dying. In just two websites they have received over $7600 not to mention the countless benefits our town has had or just people donating to them. This is so hard to fathom a mother doing this. Riley’ s #1 on her bucket list was to meet Ariel at Disney and that was made possible. Her mother would be on Facebook constantly updating on her and even said it had spread and they had stopped chemo. Her father is the manager of our local Walmart and worked a lot so they are saying he didn’t know but that just seems crazy. Did he never occumpany his wife to the Dr? If not then shame on him. Personally I think she was drugging her with cannabis oil and it was making the child not feel well and sleep a lot. That’s when she would take her picture to post on Facebook. This all was figured out when Riley was to start kindergarten. The school was trying to make a plan for her and her medical records weren’t adding up so they called police. I can’t imagine what this poor little girl must be thinking. Google Riley slauson.
