(Newser) – A Colorado mother has been arrested after allegedly convincing her family and friends that her young son was dying of cancer and accepting more than $25,000 in public donations. Police arrested 28-year-old Sandy Nguyen on felony charges of theft and criminal impersonation Thursday. She allegedly convinced members of the community in Aurora that her 6-year-old son had bone cancer and leukemia for more than a year. Students and teachers even helped out with donations at the little boy's elementary school—and Nguyen is even accused of making her own son believe the story.
