She was once working with a colleague, Dr. James Watson when they both activated an Ancient device. The second they realized it was emitting radiation, they deactivated it and reported to Dr. Carson Beckett, where he found nothing life-threatening on them. However, she didn't realize that a tumor was being developed behind her lung. The next morning, she went on a sparring session with Teyla Emmagan, and later planned a late lunch. When Teyla left Hewston in the mess hall to get her Bantos rods, the tumor went into a critical mass and Hewston exploded, killing her instantly. The detonation also killed three others.
