(as a relative),

My sister who has a rare form of ovarian cancer, has had chemotherapyrecently but due to her stomach filling with fluid she had to return to hospital she had only has been home 1 day with a very swollen stomach and she is still waiting for something to be done, she hasn't eaten for 2 days they told her now that nothing can be done for a further amount of time. This is outrageous my sister IS Dying and they are not doing nothing.
