Right-to-die Nancy 'didn't have cancer'.

A RIGHT-TO-DIE campaigner who took a fatal dose of drugs may not have had terminal cancer after all, according to a doctor.

After newspapers said there were no visible signs of cancer in the body of frail Nancy Crick, 70, pro-euthanasia campaigner Dr Philip Nitschke said it was irelevant if she had cancer or an inoperable twisted bowel.

He added: "The quality of her life was such she thought death was preferable."

Nancy, who wrote an internet diary on her pain-wracked life, died at home in Queensland, Australia. The 21 people with her could be charged with assisting suicide - which carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.
