The former Grey’s Anatomy writer is finally coming clean about the lies surrounding her medical history! When Elisabeth Finch (pictured above, right) joined the writer’s room for the long-running medical drama in 2014, she frequently pulled inspiration from her own supposed medical history.
She claimed to have been diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer called chondrosarcoma in 2012, completing rounds of chemotherapy for two years before being hired for Grey’s Anatomy.
But that wasn’t all. During her treatment, she also said she lost a kidney, then a part of her tibia, and later was required to get an abortion due to her chemo.
Along with her health struggles, Elisabeth also told her co-workers her brother had died by suicide in 2019 and claimed to have lost a friend in the Tree of Life synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh.
