A video posted on Facebook showed a doctor at Kluay Nam Thai Hospital telling a cancer patient there was no hope. 

Netizens complained that the consultant was unnecessarily abrupt and dashing the woman’s hopes. She looked resigned to her fate in a wheelchair as her relatives filmed.

Tens of thousands of Thais shared the video – up to 50,000 today. 

The woman – suffering from the complications of liver cancer – was told that she won’t die today – but she has two years at the outside. 

She is told: “Get ready to say goodbye to your children – you can’t be cured”. 

The footage sparked a debate online between brutal honesty and giving hope. 

It appeared on the page of Sunee Kaewtangsin.
