Who gives a damn what he thinks? His mother damn near KILLED HIM. His MOTHER made him afraid of that chemo. Until you have a young child in your family, that is dying of cancer, and I'm sure you don't, but I DO, then you have no idea what the hell you are talking about. His own MOTHER wasn't thinking of him, she was thinking of her stupid beliefs. Go get a life, would you?
Examining the mother's behavior with regards to this chemo thing is entirely valid.
Now according to court documents that I read his first and only chemo treatment was the first week of February. It was after that event when she started to look at alternative treatments because of the child's complaint of the pain of the chemo treatment and happened on this quasi-religious Indian medicine man while searching the internet. Daniel when he was being questioned by the Judge said the family went to a small Catholic Church in Mankato every other week. So much for the religious belief defense she used. She also said in that media interview that Daniel would rather run away than have any more chemo treatments. Now tell me, how far is a 13 year old living on a farm 5-10 miles from the town Sleepy Eye going to go in late winter or early spring in Minnesota. Not far.
It is obvious she loves her son. In my opinion her zealous over-protecting of him combined with his illiteracy clouded some common sense that she as an adult and mother should have used. Remember this. It never would have been a news story if she and Daniel shown up for the court date as required and promised.

One more thing. When this California lawyer shows up with a lot of empty promises of alternative treatment in Mexico that also clouded her judgment.
I wonder who paid for those Sun Country Airline tickets.

Two and two just does not add up to four regarding some of her statements.

Let us put it this way, being told you or your child has a potentially deadly cancer is scary. You get opinions from different people some of them is not so great. I know because I got all sorts of weird opinions but I decided on treatment and to fight. Daniel had to decide to fight and it is apparent he did. You can't put a time table on that emotion, it will only cause the personn to flee. So this says to me that once again everyone involved over reacted.

The fact that the mother and her son tried to flee and were forced to come back and accept the chemotherapy exposes the fact that unfortunately, our country is very rapidly throwing away its freedom.

Of course, please let me explain.

The founding fathers and the other people who established this great and wonderful nation certainly were sincere in wanting to make a place where everybody would be truly and fully free. So now that everyone here is fully free to do his own thing, everyone began to freely do his own thing. Now some of the people were quite successful in their own things that they were freely doing and they thus became bigger and bigger. Now I am not against anyone at all for being successful and becoming even very big! However, if they use the power and influence that they have from being big to destroy other people or to boss other people around, that is certainly wrong.

So again, this was set up as a free country. So everyone freely does their thing and some are successful, gaining power and influence. A problem though can arise: "What if one of these successfuls uses -- or, more aptly MISUSES -- its power and influence to destroy others and boss others around?"

This is exactly what happened with modern medicine. The modern medical -- so called -- establishment has had numerous apparent successes in relieving people of various ailments. With people being impressed with these marvels, the modern medical world experienced virtually unlimited extensive growth, prestige, and power. However, it shrewdly used its massive prestige and power to manipulate modern society so that it will be regarded as THE only legitimate source of health care. It did this by heavily vilifying and defaming all of the other time honored natural healing professions, which had been effectively healing people for all of human existence. It called them "quacks," "voodoo doctors," "snake oil salesmen," "quackopractors," and "bone crackers"!

So everyone had been taught and believed that any natural herb or the like was simply old fashioned unscientific superstition. The people of the government too fully swallowed up this propaganda. They undoubtedly also remembered that they had been elected to their positions only because of the huge endorsements and large donations given to them by the modern medical and pharmaceutical associations and corporations.

So under the guise of protecting the welfare of the country's population, the government gladly gave the modern medical establishment its full backing with its iron arm of enforcement. As we are tragically witnessing right now with this case of Daniel Hauser, may The Lord spare him and protect him, every person must do and WILL DO whatever the holy holy holy modern medical masters say!

I'm glad they returned home and he is now being treated. That is the right thing for him to do at his age and for that type of cancer.
