Cancer victim given back to parents for treatment control

A 13 year old cancer sufferer has had the treatment of her Hodgkin’s disease granted to her parents upon consultation with herself in an American court of law. She was previously under Child Protective Services in hospital while receiving chemotherapy after her parents refused medical treatment, preferring to opt for a more alternative approach with vitamin C therapy. The girls’ predicted survival has decreased from 80% to 20% due to cessation of chemotherapy and radiation therapy, according to her treating doctor.
