Nancy died at 26 in September of 1971 in the midst of a severe asthma attack while trying to load her syringe with adrenaline.
Had the FDA not tied up the Asthma Inhaler for a full decade prior to approving it for use in the United States, she would be 65 now.
Asthmatics across Europe and Canada had been using the inhaler for ages at the time of Nancy's death.
