Heather Holland, 38, died on February 4 from complications related to the flu, NBC DFW reported. She initially planned to take medication but decided she did not want to pay the $116 copay- it was too high. After doctors learned she had sepsis she was put on dialysis Saturday night.

She died Sunday morning from the flu.

"I have to be strong for the kids but it's still surreal", Frank Holland told the Democrat.

In any case, the second grade educator thought it "cost excessively" as per her significant other Straight to the point, who in the end purchased his better half the pharmaceutical on Thursday when her side effects did not ease up.

Dr Jeffrey Hanks, superintendent, said: "This is a sad time for our WISD family, especially for those who knew Mrs. Holland as a friend and colleague". I don't think she is being irresponsible.

Pastor Clark Bosher described a teacher, mother of two and wife that was heavily involved in Willow Park Baptist Church.

Heather's own two children, 7 and 10, attend Ikard, as well. She was schoolteacher as well as mother and her insurance only made a small dent the cost of antiviral, so she chose to try to go without the potentially life-saving drug. She told him she thought the price of the antiviral was ridiculous. "I am really enjoying my kiddos".

As her symptoms worsened, her husband bought the Tamiflu drug for $116 (£84) a day before she went to hospital. She added that custodians started deep cleaning the district's schools in December to keep students from getting sick, and that the specific campus where Holland was employed had received an additional cleaning on Friday, Feb. 2.
