A mother is forced to give her child chemo rather than treat him herself.  What are your thoughts?  I'm kind of on the fence here.

I agree with it.

She has no right to deny her child medical treatment.

I will never have chemo myself because of what I saw happen to my dad and aunt when they were on chemo.  I don't know what I would do in this situation.

This is sad. From what I understand the boy was actually doing better without the chemo! I hope he lives long enough for this to be turned over!

If he was doing great with her treatment... Why did they get involved?

 The standard treatment plan for ALL is 3.5 years of chemo for boys.  The marjuana was just letting him cope better with the side effects.  Which coming off the chemo would of helped with anyways.

The state should have never interfered.  The child was improving, what she was doing was working.  If this were my kid, I'd leave the state in the dark of night and move to another state with legal marijuana laws or go over the border to Canada.

 That's exactly my thoughts, I wouldn't do alternative treatments with my children.

 All it was doing was helping with the side effects though.  Which after the first 8 or 9 months there's less chemo so he would of started feeling better.  I would understand maybe if she wanted to do it in addition but not strictly that.

If marijuana could cure or fight cancer sure, but  it cannot. Using it as an aide I'm fine with.
