Woman Claiming to be Madeleine McCann Says She May Have Cancer

The Polish woman who believes she is Madeleine McCann has shared a heartbreaking update.

Julia Wandel, 21, hit the headlines recently after claiming to be Madeleine on social media, drawing attention to their physical similarities and urging for a DNA test to take place.

Then-three-year-old Madeleine went missing in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in 2007 while on vacation with her family, and her case still remains unsolved almost 16 years later.

Most recently, it’s been announced that she is awaiting the result of DNA and genetic testing to confirm her identity.

However, she is also awaiting test results back over fears she has leukaemia over fears she may be battling cancer.

“We are still waiting on the result of DNA testing that will show us exactly what Julia’s ethnic background is and what country she and her true family are from. These kinds of tests are very accurate,” Ms. Wendell’s representative and private detective Dr. Fia Johansson told The Sun.”

“Of course depending on the result of that we will continue our investigation to see if Julia is could be Madeleine or another missing person.”

“But now the focus is on Julia as a person – not Madeleine.”

“She has had a neglected childhood and suffered much abuse.”

“Her health is very poor she has bad asthma and she suffers lots of pain in her bones.”

“She is booked in for a CT and MRI scan because of the pain in her bones.”

“Her blood work is also abnormal so my doctor here in the US is investigating whether she could have leukemia so we are awaiting the results of that. And if she needs any treatment we will make sure she gets that.”

The 21-year-old has recently submitted samples for three different forensic examinations that will outline her DNA sequence, along with a 23andMe-style genetic test to establish her ancestry, private investigator Dr. Fia Johansson told RadarOnline.com.

“If the results come back that she’s British or from that area then we are going to continue our investigation into Madeleine McCann and communicate with the detectives in Portugal,” said Dr. Johansson, who relocated Wendell from Poland to a safe house in the United States after a series of death threats.

“We have a lot of evidence right now that shows Julia was definitely trafficked to Poland from another country by an international sex trafficking group.”
