            Woman loses father to flu-related death, encourages others to get flu shot
            Saturday, January 18th 2020, 3:08 PM EST
            By Kim Shine

            DODGE COUNTY, WI (WDJT) -- A Dodge County woman is sharing her story of loss, and learning. Autumn Berg's father, Patrick, died last week after battling lung cancer and the flu.

            “The flu is something that comes and goes every year, and I have seen throughout my short life on earth just how grave it can be,” Berg said.

            She says it was his second cancer diagnosis, and believes he may have had a better chance at surviving had he gotten a flu shot.
