My husband had beaten cancer, then doctors wrongly told him it had returned and let him die | Mail Online: "A grandfather who beat cancer was wrongly told the disease had returned and left to die at a hospice which pioneered a controversial 'death pathway'.
Doctors said there was nothing more they could do for 76-year- old Jack Jones, and his family claim he was denied food, water and medication except painkillers.
He died within two weeks. But tests after his death found that his cancer had not come back and he was in fact suffering from pneumonia brought on by a chest infection."
But on the other hand, the system that appears to have let him die is such a wonderful egalitarian thing.
