A new shocking case in Italy: Italian doctors in Pesaro, East Italy refused on Tuesday morning to treat a Romanian Gypsy suffering of cancer. The main motivation was that she did not have a stable address, an association defending the rights of immigrants announced, quoted by Romanian news television Realitatea TV. 

EveryOne association officials declared that Mia Copalea, of Gypsy origin, requested a medical examination and a treatment for her severe headaches. Apparently, her pain was caused by her breast cancer.

The woman's daughter declared that doctors refused to offer the woman medical attention because they do not reside in Pesaro. She added that doctors refused to give them a prescription for some pain killers.

EveryOne association urged the Italian Health minister Maurizio Sacconi to take urgent action so that the woman be treated in the hospital, like any other human being.
