PHOENIX (AP) — A Phoenix woman who pretended to have cancer to raise money for breast implants has pleaded not guilty to fraud and theft charges.

A Maricopa County Superior Court spokesman says 27-year-old Jami Lynn Toler entered her plea Wednesday.

Toler told her former boss she needed a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction and was uninsured, according to court records. She also told the same story to her mother and grandparents.

Authorities say Toler helped organize fundraisers and collected more than $8,000 beginning in September.

Medical records obtained by Mesa police show she didn't have cancer and paid a plastic surgeon with the cash.

Toler's next court appearance is scheduled for July 9.
