Outrage over allegations of bride's false terminal illness

Posted: Updated:

Those who donated to the Yonkers bride accused of lying about a terminal illness to get a free wedding say they are more than outraged by the allegations.

Lisa Stoker, who provided flowers for Jessica Vega's wedding, says she gladly donated a package worth more than $2,000 after Vega told her in detail about how she was dying of advanced-stage leukemia.

Vega's estranged husband says he started to doubt her sickness when the doctor who gave her a letter outlining her condition denied she's even a patient.

Stoker along with others who donated toward the wedding say they feel ripped off and taken advantage of.

So far, no charges have been filed against Vega.
