Is anyone else having a hard time understanding how a Christian family could let their daughter die?

rather than seek medical assistance? We as Christians are not barred from doctors. Christ Himself chose a physician among the apostles. This makes me very sad. As a mother, a Catholic Christian, and a nurse as well as a fellow diabetic I am so saddened by this. Is this really such a problem in this day and age?
Update: "Honor the physician for his skill comes from God"
Update 2: We Catholics believe that to take care of ones health is included in the comandment "Thou shalt not kill"
