Cecilia, who was being treated for breast cancer, had her benefits cut by £30 per week after a Work Capability Assessment deemed her fit for work. She died shortly after winning her appeal to get her benefits reinstated. She had told the BBC in an interview, “I was treated badly. I’ve been working since I was 17, I’ve paid all my stamps, all my National Insurance. The only time I was ever sick was when I was pregnant with my two sons. It has had a financial effect on me, but it’s more that they’re getting away with it. They are just treating you like a second class citizen. That’s how I feel – that I don’t count, I don’t matter.”
