Doctors Misdiagnose Woman’s Stage-Four Lung Cancer As Asthma Because She ‘Looked Healthy’

A British woman who was recently diagnosed with stage-four lung cancer wrote in a now-viral Facebook post this week that doctors repeatedly “brushed off” her cancer because she “looked healthy,” and instead, diagnosed her with asthma.

Vicky Veness, a 30-year-old personal trainer and non-smoker, wrote the post on Aug. 12, and has since garnered 1.8 thousand Facebook reactions and more than 600 shares.

“This photo was taken a few hours before I was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer,” the post reads. “I’m 30 years old, a personal trainer, runner, non smoker and healthy eater. When you have cancer you won’t necessarily look ill on the outside. The symptoms might be much more subtle and only show themselves occasionally.” 

“Unfortunately my symptoms were brushed off as asthma by many general practitioners,” the post continues. “The moral of the story is this, if you feel unwell for whatever reason, it doesn’t matter how silly

Woman Sentenced For Killing Ex’s New Girlfriend, Sending Family Messages Pretending To Be Her For Years

An Omaha, Nebraska woman was sentenced to life in prison on Tuesday for murdering a woman and then posing as her online and through texts.

Shanna Golyar, 42, was sentenced to life in prison for killing Cari Farver, 37 in 2012, the Omaha World-Herald reported. Prosecutors claimed Golyar murdered the victim after witnessing her leaving the home of the man that Golyar had dated.

Farver’s body was never found. However, the court was shown a photo taken by Golyar that allegedly showed Farver’s decomposing foot. Prosecutors also presented 13 emails written by Golyar that detailed the murder.

After Farver’s disappearance, her family received messages from Farver’s phone and from a fake Facebook account for years. Golyar even posed as Farver on Mother’s Day, sending a message to Farver’s mom.

Douglas County District Judge Timothy Burns said that Golyar spun a “twisted plot of lies, deceit and impersonations through digital messaging,” according to Read more at: http://www.oxygen.com/blogs/woman-sentenced-for-killing-exs-new-girlfriend-sending-family-messages-pretending-to-be-her

David Mueller Says He’s Having So Much Trouble Finding Job After Taylor Swift Trial, He’ll ‘Work For Free’

Taylor Swift emerged victorious from her legal battle with David Mueller, the radio DJ who groped Swift backstage at a meet-and-greet.

Mueller has since spoken out against the ruling, maintaining his own innocence. Now, in an interview with TMZ, Mueller is desperately seeking employment. 

“I’ve been personally seeking employment since after the concert … Right now I don’t have any offers. A lot of my friends in radio know that I’d be willing to even work for free,” says Mueller, who admits he’d even screen phone calls, a job essentially for interns.

Mueller was fired from his job after accusations from Swift became public. He had attempted to sue Swift for damages, but a judge dismissed the suit.

Mueller is hoping to rebuild his reputation and return to morning radio, which he describes as his “passion.”

Daughter Discovers Mom Dead In Car After Note Reveals ‘Suicide Pact’ Parents Made Together

A Florida man is accused of helping his girlfriend kill herself after the couple made a “suicide pact.”

According to News-Journal, 52-year-old Bruce Haughton and his 52-year-old girlfriend, Katherine Goddard, tried to kill themselves by carbon monoxide poisoning twice in June. She died during the second attempt, while he survived. Her daughter found the couple during the incident.

On June 30, Haughton and Goddard were both found in a car unresponsive. Haughton helped plan the suicide by placing duct tape around the garage door and attaching a dryer vent to the exhaust pipe of a vehicle so the car would fill with carbon monoxide. “I just got home and I just found my mom and my step-dad in the garage, in the car,” the daughter said, “and I don’t know if the car’s been on or what but … he’s barely breathing and I can’t get a pulse off of her.”

The daughter also found

Mom Pens Chilling Note Month Before Ex Murders Her Over Brutal …

“He was smooth and had me fearing everything he said would come true,” wrote Debra Morgan, an Oklahoma woman, shortly before being murdered in 2016 following a long custody battle with her ex.

Richard Spaulding and Sonia Weidenfelder, Spaulding’s fiancé, now face first-degree murder charges, according to Fox.

On the day Morgan had been killed, records show that a court of appeals had filed in her favor pertaining to child support over offspring she had with Spaulding. Spaulding was going to have to pay over tens of thousands in legal fees.
