No, the girl might have lived a little longer with chemo. Maybe not much (maybe only a few months even), and it may not have been pleasant, but she could have read a new book or something, filled the last moments of her life with more of those little ephemera that make life more pleasant. Instead, she got robbed by her stupid bitch of a mother of precious time she could have used to do something remotely productive and enjoyable in her life. I detest the wilfully stupid, even more so when they think they're well-meaning but in reality, they're just being stupid, and cause people to die because of their well-meaning stupidity.

Bloody hell, this guy is a brazen bas****, isn't he?

I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.
