Lisa Hayden-Johnson Jailed For Pretending Her Son Was Ill Enough To Meet Tony Blair

by | 22nd, January 2010

LISA Hayden-Johnson has been jailed today for 39 months. Her crime was in pretending her son was severely ill to gain publicity and financial rewards. She went to Downing Street to meet with Tony Blair, a prize for winners of the Woman’s Own Children of Courage Award and their respective families. (Tony failed to heal him.) Hayden-Johnson suffers from Munchausen’s syndrome by proxy, allegedly. She forced her son to endure nine operations, breathe from an oxygen cylinder, told doctors that he had to be fed by tube and put glucose in his urine to make them believe he had diabetes. She claimed he had cerebral palsy, an allergy to sunlight, cystic fibrosis and a diseased spleen.
