 Oz Mum Deliberately Gave Chemo Drugs to Daughter to Rake in Donations

A 22-year old mother in Brisbane, Australia, is being accused of deliberately poisoning her 4-year old daughter with chemotherapy drugs in order to get cash through donations raised from public.

The mother created a Facebook page, which has over 7,000 followers, where she posted pictures of the girl lying prostrate in a hospital bed, covered in bruises and without her hair.

She bought the drugs from the internet and visited the hospital on a number of occasions despite doctors clearing the girl of leukemia when she first went to the hospital in February last year. The mother is being charged with grievous bodily harm.

After the followers of the Facebook page turned against the mother after the news broke, the child's grandmother asked them to continue praying for her as she is very sick. "Can I ask you save the hate and turn all your focus to positive prayerful thoughts for our gorgeous baby. [The] number one priority is to get her well. She's sick guys and regardless of how she got there we need to get her back. The hate isn't going to make her better - prayers and positive energy and thoughts will. Every person and every prayer helps", the grandmother wrote.
