Most Helpful Guy
The chemo was said to give her an excellent chance to gain remission, and without it she would likely die soon. She stated that she did not want the chemo. That did not sound very rational. With an adult, that would have ended it, but in this case, the state was called in. Her mother was fighting to prevent the chemo. So the State took custody of a minor and forced her to have the chemo. She has since made excellent progress, is happy, and now says she want to continue the chemo. the mom is STILL trying to force the state out.
It clearly seems that the earlier conviction the girl had to not have chemo was something her mother brainwashed her with, perhaps due to religion. But the girl has since learned the truth, is doing well under the medical care, and is happy with life and the treatment. So it seems the state made the right decisions.1
