VERONA, Pa. – A man from this Pittsburgh suburb filed a lawsuit this week against Apria Healthcare alleging his mother died because the company failed to provide her with oxygen to treat lung cancer, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Raymond Anthony filed the complaint alleging claims of negligence and wrongful death. He asserts his mother, Marlene Anthony, died because Apria, a California company, refused to deliver oxygen on a Sunday and instead instructed her to use an emergency tank.
