There's a surprising twist to the story we told you about the woman who gained national attention after panhandling in Akron for breast implants. It turns out Chrissy Lance, 37, of Rittman, will not be paying for her surgery.
Lance says a surgeon from Miami, Florida saw her story and thought it was 'cute', so he offered to do the surgery for free.
Earlier this month, Lance, dressed in a bikini and cowboy boots, stood at the corner of Manchester Road, holding a sign that read: "Not Homeless. Need Boobs."
Her unconventional approach has gained her national attention. She says Inside Edition is expected to film her journey through surgery and she will be making an appearance with her surgeon on the 'Dr. Drew' show.
So, how much money did Lance raise while she was panhandling - about $200 over three days. She plans to use the money for her meals when she heads down to Florida for her surgery.
Lance says she doesn't regret her decision despite some of the negative feedback and comments she has received from the public.
"The downside of it is, I have good friends that have turned on me because they feel that I'm exploiting my daughter."
"(My daughter) is very open-minded and understanding," said Lance. " I tell her about everything that I do. I don't lie to her."
Chrissy's breast implant surgery has been scheduled for Wednesday, August 1.
"I can't live my life on how other people judge. I mean, people judge people everyday, even though they don't know anything about them. So, there's always going to be judgmental people in the world."
