Clare Daly, a newlywed from the U.K., died two months after experiencing shoulder pain. Assuming it was a pulled muscle, she initially ignored the problem. When the pain became severe, doctors diagnosed her with an aggressive form of melanoma.
Two years prior, Daly had a mole removed that doctors believe was the source of the melanoma.
Doctors told her that her only chance for survival was a pioneering dual therapy at a Manchester Hospital. Unfortunately, she could not raise the funds necessary to pay for the treatment and passed away.
“We thought dual therapy was the best chance of prolonging Clare’s life, of keeping the cancer at bay for as long as possible in the hope of them finding another new treatment,” Michael McNally, Daly’s brother, told Liverpool Echo. “It isn’t funded by the NHS (National Health Services) so we started to fundraise, but it was just too late.”
In recent years, the National Health Services has been hit with severe financial challenges. Yet, the coverage is erratic. While the potentially life-saving therapy recommended for Clare Daly was not covered, many controversial new age methods are. Therapies that claim to heal through "channeling energy," Aromatherapy, and Reiki spiritual healing are paid for by the socialist system.
