New York: Mother Loses Custody of Her Son with Leukemia for Refusing Chemotherapy After He Was Given Clean Bill of Health
Candace Gundersen, who’s a holistic wellness coach, is fighting to have her 13-year old son removed from chemotherapy treatment for acute leukemia after he was given a clean bill of health by doctors. Gunderson was told when her son was diagnosed that if she refused chemotherapy treatment for him, Child Protective Services (CPS) would have her removed and her son would receive treatment anyway, so she signed the consent forms. The boy had a serious adverse reaction and she refused further outpatient treatments, as she planned to pursue alternative care for him, prompting a doctor to call CPS. The boy was seized and will be forced to get treatments for three years, the standard for care, even though the cancer was declared gone.
