13 year old Daniel Hauser has Hodgkins lymphoma. I'm sure you've seen him in the news, for he and his family are refusing Chemo treatment. Doctors say with the treatment he has a 90 percent chance of survival. Without it, he will likely die. The family wants to go the route of more natural treatments, per their religion.
I saw that yesterday authorities were imprisoning the parents for this.
I'm wondering when we got to the point of not being able to make our own decisions about our own lives.
I once worked with a young gir, probably late 20s, that had cancer, went through Chemo, and was well. Then the cancer came back. They wanted to go through the whole operation again, and she refused. She started taking care of herself, eating right, excersizing. The cancer went away, and never came back.
I've gotten similar testimonials from at least 3 passengers on my plane.
I say he should be able to do what he wants.
