Late diagnosis creating deadly cancer gap

Late diagnosis creating deadly cancer gap
Diagnosis

Pages: 8 - 9

Hayley Plimmer lost her 64-year old mother Catherine ‘aka Kay’ Christopher to liver cancer in 2017 following a late diagnosis. Hayley said:
My mother died of liver cancer five days after receiving her diagnosis and being told by
her consultant that there was nothing that could be done. It was a horribly shocking and traumatic experience for the whole family and we’re still reeling four years later. Looking back, there were some signs which we now know to have been symptoms of cancer but we had no idea at the time.
