HILLSBOROUGH mum Anne Williams today said she felt "let down again" by the government after learning that an fresh inquest into her sons death is unlikely to be brought forward.
More than 31,000 people have signed a government e-petition calling for a speedy hearing after Mrs Williams, 59, was diagnosed last month with a terminal illness.
She has campaigned tirelessly for justice for more than two decades after losing 15-year-old son Kevin in the 1989 disaster.
But the Attorney General the governments top lawyer yesterday hinted that the inquests of all 96 victims will be held at the same time as "all the deaths arose from a single chain of event".
That may not happen for the foreseeable future given the strong possibility of criminal charges against those implicated in the tragedy and its subsequent cover-up.
Mrs Williams, who was diagnosed with terminal bowel cancer, today expressed her anger at the government.
But she insisted: "While Im still here Ill still be fighting."
She told the ECHO: "I have never asked for special treatment other people set the petition up but I dont know what time I have left and I want to be there to see the witnesses tell the truth about what happened to Kevin and get that accidental verdict quashed.
"I feel the Attorney General has let me down again like every government I have dealt with but the system has failed Kevin for 23 years.
"All the evidence is there so if he really wanted to get the wheels turning quicker I believe he could.
"The other families used to say to me Were waiting for you to open the gates Anne and the report opened a can of worms but this shouldve been done years and years ago.
"We shouldve had our inquests and the truth a long time ago."
