A 31-year-old mother died from bowel cancer after her chemotherapy was paused in March due to coronavirus restrictions.
Kelly Smith’s doctors from England’s National Health Service told her in March, around the time the country shut down, that her treatment would be paused as part of a scramble to open up hospital beds, according to Daily Mail.
“I’m angry at Covid and that I got put on this break because I don’t think I should have,” Smith reportedly said at the time. “I’m terrified — absolutely terrified. I don’t want to die. I feel like I’ve got so much more to do.”
