This one sentence sheds so much light to this whole case:
"Daniel declined information about Hodgkin's, though he admitted to Joyce that he didn't know much about it." How can someone who doesn't know about their medical situation make a decision about it?
That aside, I recognize that he has the right to his own opinion. However, coupled with his lack of information about his own disease, the Strib is reporting:
"Daniel Hauser's chest tumor has grown rapidly and will almost certainly suffocate him within the next few weeks unless he gets immediate medical care when the crisis comes, according to the physician who first diagnosed the 13-year-old boy's cancer."
It was discovered that he had cancer in the first place when he was having trouble breathing and he was referred to Children's Hospital. So if his tumor has grown larger than when it was first diagnosed, I imagine he's already having medical problems and symptoms that is causing him pain and discomfort.
Daniel's mom, please do the right thing for your son. Please stop his suffering and allow him to be treated. Perhaps there's a combination of chemo/natural medicine that could help-it's helped in other people's situations (rarely without traditional medicine, mind you).
I'll walk in honor of your son this fall at the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's 5K Walk, "Light the Night," at Lake Phalen in St Paul. I'd love to walk along side your son, already finished treatment, on the way to becoming healthy again.

This is a tough one. No one wants to deprive a parent of their rights. And although a supporter of alternative medicine, in this case it would best serve this child if it was administered in conjuction with conventional treatment. It is crucial that the tumor's size be reduced quickly to prevent suffocation. Alternative medicine simply may not be able to do that in the time alloted. There is nothing pleasant about chemo but it does save lifes. And conventional treatment may buy this young man the time he needs to choose the alternative methods of treatment. Whatever the situation, I wish the Hauser family well and success in their endeavor. It's a big risk at this crucial moment of time.
