Randy Cassingham’s Honorary Unsubscribe Recognizes the Unknown, the Forgotten and the Obscure People who Had an Impact on Our Lives
A native of Poland, Radosz moved to Scotland to be with her boyfriend after graduating from college with a degree in agricultural science. Shortly before that, a mole on her arm was diagnosed as skin cancer — malignant melanoma. It was removed, and she went on her way. But in Scotland, she discovered the melanoma had spread. Doctors in Aberdeen told her aggressive chemotherapy was needed for the aggressive cancer. But by this time Radosz was pregnant, and she refused the treatment to save her baby. Doctors warned her that conventional treatment gave her only a 10 percent chance of survival, but she was adamant. Radosz gave birth to a healthy baby boy in November, but the cancer had spread into her organs, including her lungs and brain. It killed her on May 11 during a visit to her family in Poland, just before she was to head to the U.S. for gene therapy. She was 27.
