$13.5 million awarded in Dana-Farber Cancer Institute death

Boston Globe, November 6, 2008

The family of a 40-year-old woman who died following a cycle of experimental chemotherapy at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston was awarded a total of $13.5 million. The jurors decided that her death could have been prevented if Dana-Farber doctors had investigated the cause of chronic diarrhea that surfaced during an unusual treatment protocol for a tumor behind her knee.
