After getting more information, I can confirm as well, that we were duped. Jim did not have cancer, he is a bit sick, but the fact of the matter is that he did not have cancer.
Weather you are a friend of Lance’s or not is completely irrelevent in this matter. Yes Jim was sick, No he did not have cancer, and yes, the benefit was unfortunatly a bit pointless.
Apparently he was a pretty good actor and did a little cancer research to try to pull that off. I will not dilvulge the reasons why he chose to do this, as it not really public concern.
