Mom Fakes Son’s Cancer?
An Ohio mom is in jail for allegedly faking her 4-year-old son's cancer diagnosis and accepting gifts and donations on behalf of the boy.
Emily Creno-King, 31, reportedly told family and friends that her son, JJ, had terminal brain cancer. The allegations are that she shaved JJ's head, made him wear a surgical mask outside and allegedly gave him medications for seizures she told doctors JJ was suffering from.
She also set up a Facebook page, asking for police and firefighter badges for JJ, who had always dreamed of becoming an officer. Touched by JJ’s story, at least 20 people also made monetary donations, according to police.
Reports suggest and The Doctors suspect that Creno-King has Munchausen syndrome by proxy, a mental disorder in which someone pretends a family member is sick — or deliberately makes them sick — for attention.

Best Paw Forward?
Veterinarian Dr. Courtney Campbell shares a new pet product that will have your dog back on all four feet in no time.
Neo-Paws, orthopedic dog shoes made of neoprene and rubber, offer support, grip and shock absorption for the family pet. These shoes can benefit many dogs, Dr. Courtney explains. Dogs suffering from arthritis, joint pain and even burns due to hot pavement may find some relief.
"If you also kind of think of (Neo-Paws) like the grip tape in your shower, then imagine if you had that grip tape everywhere you went," Dr. Courtney says. "For those hardwood floors, for those ceramic tiles, so you don't slide."
