A young woman mother aged 31 has died in the past months in the UK. The 31-year-old had long been suffering from a tumor to the intestine that he could not cure, with adequate therapies, due to the health emergency from Covid-19.

Unfortunately, in the absence of treatment, the cancer it spread and in June the woman died. Now the 31-year-old’s parents have called one petition to ask the government to end the delays in cancer treatment during this epidemic.
England, chemotherapy interrupted due to Covid-19 emergency: young mother suffering from cancer dies
He was unable to continue the treatment, which he had undergone for years, adequately due to the pandemic since Covid-19 and passed away. This is the tragic fate of Kelly Smith, a 31-year-old young mother from Macclesfield, a county town of Cheshire, in England. As reported by the editorial staff of the British newspaper Daily Mail, the 31-year-old, who worked as a beautician, was diagnosed with a tumor bowel in 2017. Immediately after her diagnosis, Kelly underwent surgery and then some cycles of chemotherapy ed immunoterapia to try to defeat the disease.
In March, however, the doctors informed her of the interruption of chemotherapy due to the Covid-19 emergency that the hospitals were facing. Unfortunately, the disease has spread even more rapidly and Kelly’s condition is get worse until his death, which took place on 13 June.
To tell the dramatic story were the same parents of the 31-year-old, who started a petition, which has collected over 315,000 signatures, through which the government is asked to put an end to the delays in cancer treatment during the epidemic. To the drafting of Daily Mail, the stepfather, pointing his finger at the national health system, said the 31-year-old’s life would be “exchanged”With that of patients affected by the virus.
The parents have therefore started a battle to ensure that there are no cases similar to that of Kelly leaving a six-year-old son.
