A woman from another state has recently filed a wrongful death lawsuit against several defendants that were involved in her husband's dialysis treatment. In this legal claim, she is alleging that medical malpractice occurred and resulted in the death of her husband.

This drastically reduces the patient's chances of fighting the cancer. One couple found this out the hard way.
