A woman is dead from the flu after deciding the medication she needed was too expensive. Heather Holland of Weatherford, Texas died Sunday from flu complications. The "Weatherford Democrat" says the second grade teacher and mother of two children decided $116 was too high a price for the medication. Her husband said she got sick a week ago and was in the ICU by Friday night.
He says Holland was on dialysis Saturday morning, and by Sunday morning she was dead.
