The 21-year-old Long Island resident Brittany Ozarowski faked several forms of cancer for an entire year to support her heroin addiction. According to Suffolk County's District Attorney Thomas Spota, Ozarowski collected thousands of dollars in donations to help pay for bogus medical bills by setting up a website and giving a detailed account of her 100% made-up tearjerker story.
