A mother went viral after she told viewers in a TikTok video she was charged over $300 just to receive confirmation of her daughter's death.

"I lost a daughter in America," said TikToker Linzathy–a.k.a. @whenlifegivesyoulindzes–before revealing the screenshot of the bill she received with a "Hospital Discharge Day Management" charge of $341.00.

The clip, which you can see below, racked up over 3.4 million views.

It wouldn’t let me stitch @thecooljack4 but he’s so right!! This 💩 happened to me. On a seriously note, the #americanhealthcaresystem needs #reform


"She was not discharged, she died. What they charged her for was the doctor coming in because he was not in the room when she passed and him listening to her lack of a heartbeat for less than, like, five seconds," she said.

"So that was like $350, and we had already knew she had passed."

The grieving mother added:

"You would think after spending $2 million on her medical expenses that the death would be free, but guess not."


Not only were TikTokers shocked, but they were also appalled over the "broken" healthcare system in the US.

Linzathy explained in a series of three videos that she lost her daughter to cancer in 2018.

She said her daughter had been looking pale, was tired, and had a rash that wouldn't go away.

Because Linzathy was busy with a college event, her mother took the little girl to the hospital where doctors discovered Linzathy's daughter had low oxygen levels and that something was wrong with her blood.

Later, her daughter was taken to the children's hospital for a blood transfusion.

While there, Linzathy was told her daughter had abnormal cells in her blood, which was later revealed to be due to leukemia.

"That's when I completely lost it," she said after learning of her daughter's grim diagnosis.

"That was the first of what would eventually be many out-of-body experiences."

"I could not stop crying, even though in my head I was telling myself to stop crying," she recalled. "My mind and my body were doing two different things."
