The bone marrow transplant doesn't help Olivia so they have to put her on a medicine that has a lot of risks but her parents decide to put it on her anyways, but while she is in the hospital she has to not take it anymore because her lungs couldn't handle it and she couldn't breath without her heart being unstable.
Resolution
There is nothing anyone else can do for Olivia so they discharge her and bring her home and she passes away.

I chose person v. nature because the doctors couldn't find a cure and she died.
