A woman whose partner pretended to have cancer has said his years of lying “stole so much of my life”.
Lucy Witchard, of Leicester, said David Carroll, 35, told her he had leukaemia when they met in 2006 – they married in 2011 and have since divorced.
She said in 2015 her mother sacrificed him PS2, 000 for treatment in the US after he said the cancer was terminal.
Carroll was given a suspended prison setting for impostor at Leicester Magistrates' Court last week.
During their four years of wedlock, Carroll had also lied about having prostate and gut cancer, but subsequently admitted this, Ms Witchard said.
