My mother died of cancer without seeing an Oncologist...

Dodi, Vernon, BC

January 23rd, 2023


My mother died on October 19, 2021 of cancer without seeing an Oncologist even once. No prognosis given, and diagnostic imaging and tests were scheduled horrendously far apart. One CT scan appointment arrived in the mail a week after she died. Outrageous that she was a nurse in the system her entire adult life, paid her taxes for 50 years and couldn't access a Specialist even ONCE.
