After researching her symptoms online, Bronte Doyne, 19, was convinced that her cancer had come back. Doctors told her to “stop Googling your symptoms.”
When she was eventually admitted to the hospital, after 16 months of begging to be taken seriously, she died in just 10 days.
Her disease had become too aggressive for treatment. Nottingham University Hospitals medical director Dr. Stephen Fowlie said, “Sadly, there were no further surgical, chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment options for Bronte’s very aggressive cancer.”
