- She recently started working in a company and she was going to work with a fever. She and her family were in a bad financial state because her husband recently had a surgery and he was not working, and they have a daughter which is going to the first grade. She didn't want to go to a sick leave because she knew her salary will be much smaller. In the meantime, she was going to the doctor's and she was told to come to the hospital to lie in bed because her lungs were in a very bad state. However, she didn't want to do that because of work. When the sickness completely took over, she went to the hospital but it was too late - Tanja's friends said.
