CANCER fighter Chris Carberry has blasted a fraudster who pretended she had skin cancer to get more than £19,000 in donations.

Today, Friday, February 8, the Star reported that former Sutton Academy staff member Keera Brayford was ordered to pay back just over £10,000 of the £19,000 raised on a JustGiving account for alternative treatment for a disease she did not have.

After posting the article online, cancer fighter Chris, from Rainford, who has lost his leg in his battle to beat the disease and is himself raising money for alternative treatment abroad, labelled the fraudster as "immoral".

He said: "As a 22-year-old who's raising funds genuinely for my cancer treatment abroad, I find it really bizarre and sickening to read.

"I know how much effort goes into a fundraising campaign and everything that goes with it - it pretty much takes over your life.

"And so it just makes me wonder why this person thought she'd get away with it .

"How on earth can one be so immoral?"

Chris is raising money for alternative treatment abroad after being diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer three times.
