  • Maybe she didn't want him to suffer through the drugs. Maybe she thought he would die anyways and didn't want him to spend his last days miserable. But...with a cure rate like that, I find it hard for that to be her excuse.

    I could never withhold something that could save my son. I would rather die myself than lose him.

  • if you have ever seen a person die a slow death with chemo medications you might be able to understand why. My son is 11 and we did have a cancer scare, if he asked me to I would help him to die.

  • His doctors believed he had an 80 to 90 percent cure rate. So treatment would save this child's life. He would live most likely a normal life. The type he has is considered the desirable type compared to the other. He was not sick enough to have hospice so absolutely charge this woman. She was abusive and neglectful. There are many paliative options she also did not chose. Chosing to do nothing causes more pain and distress. She didn't even try to get him pain management. Just tge absense of any tratment or care.
