Tiffany Youngs Illness: What Illness Does Tom Youngs Wife Have?
Tiffany Youngs had cancer. She was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer in the year 2014. Three years later, her illness was declared terminal.
In 2017, Tiffany was informed that her illness was incurable, and she could die in a matter of months. This devastating news led to Tom’s brother Ben Youngs withdrawing from the British and Irish Lions tour of New Zealand.
After 12 months of alternative treatments, including cannabis oil and fasting for 17 hours per day, her terminal cancer was finally cured.
She began to look into alternative treatments after being punished for stem cell treatment.
She only ate fish and took cannabis oil, and she cut out sugar, red meat, and milk from her diet.
Mrs Youngs also used an ENS cosmodic treatment. This uses metal prongs that send electric pulses into the body to stimulate cells.
She stated that she felt so good, she would wake up one morning and realize she didn’t have it anymore.
However, the illness returned and Youngs was forced to take indefinite leave from Tigers duties in order to care for his wife, who was seriously ill. He then retired from the game.
Tiffany death was announced on June 8, 2022.
Maisie Youngs is the only daughter and child of the couple.
