One thing I mentioned during the panel at the request of DWJ's family, and which I may as well repeat here for the better dissemination thereof, is that, contrary to reports (including mine in The Independent), DWJ did not die of lung cancer. The mistake is understandable, because at the time we all became aware of it the cancer was indeed attacking her lung. Also, she did smoke heavily both before and after surgery. However, the primary cancer was ovarian. It had been successfully treated several years before, or so they thought, before coming back in an aggressive form.
For the record.
