UNFORTUNATELY FOR HER, THEY FOUND THE "CANCER":

Patient lived with cancer for 50 years before dying of bedsore (Ian Johnston, 05 Jul 2009, Daily Telegraph)

Pamela Goddard had great faith in the NHS. It had, after all, kept her alive for more than half her 82 years.

The piano teacher first contracted breast cancer in the 1960s and had survived a series of recurrences of the disease over the years.

The cancer did not kill her, but a bedsore did.
