Family blames chemo for death of aboriginal girl, 11

I don't see it myself. The girl has leukemia, has chemo, stops chemo, does "traditional healing", then has a stroke and dies. Tradgedy for sure, but blaming the chemo does not wash with he, especially given how many people have chemo and live.

“Makayla was on her way to wellness, bravely fighting toward holistic well-being after the harsh side effects that 12 weeks of chemotherapy inflicted on her body,” her family said in a statement issued in the Two Row Times, a weekly newspaper covering indigenous issues.

”Chemotherapy did irreversible damage to her heart and major organs. This was the cause of the stroke.”
An oncologist countered, however, that untreated leukemia can in fact cause strokes.

A leukemia cell could go into the bone marrow and crowd out normal cells, leading to a very low platelet count which could result in a bleeding stroke in the head, explained Dr. Jacqueline Halton, a pediatric hematologist-oncologist at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.

Alternatively, leukemia could cause a patient to have a very high white cell count, which could also lead to a stroke, she said.
