Police: Iowa mother charged after faking child's cancer

IOWA - An Iowa mother is in trouble with the law after lying about her child's cancer diagnosis in order to get money.

Residents of Atlantic Iowa had held fundraisers for the family, even funding a trip to Disney World.

Police Chief Steven Green says that everyone was stunned to learn they were tricked.

The mother has been charged with one count of felony child endangerment and other charges.

Police say she acted alone, and the child's father is cooperating with the investigation.
