The bodybuilder disagreed with the organization’s statement, insisting her relative was ‘kicked out’ from a health facility and told to ‘come back in eight weeks’ without treatment for his “ aggressive growing cancer ”.
Balls To Cancer wrote, “We can’t say it enough. THE NHS IS OPEN, please don’t stay home with symptoms of cancer, talk to your doctor, or visit A&E.
“The numbers for cancer diagnosis are drastically reduced. Remember, lives are saved with early detection! Please RT. ‘
Sharing Kristina’s experience fighting cancer in the midst of the global crisis, the media personality explained, “That’s not quite true.
“ My mom was basically kicked out of the hospital and said ‘come back in 8 weeks’ even though she has the most aggressive growing cancer her consultant has ever seen.
“Thrown out of hospital because of COVID. No treatment. She’s dying at home. No word from the hospital.
“It’s terrible Jodie. Very sorry to hear that. How confident is the NHS? [sic], the charity responded as many social media users detailed similar hospital incidents during the UK’s recent lockdown.

She wrote: ‘@barrymanilow hi this is a big request I know but my mum is fading fast with terminal cancer and she and I have seen Barry live together in the UK at least 30 times over the years. She loves him.
“ Is there any chance I could get a 10 second video of Barry for her to wish him luck, please? ” [sic]
