Skip the Chemo, Canadian Style
Two Canadian parents will not be forced to give their 3-year-old son chemotherapy. Instead, they plan on combating his cancer with vegetables. The Cancer Blog is on it:
The boy, Anael L'Esperance-Nascimento, was diagnosed with cancer in late 2007 and underwent an operation. After an initial chemo treatment, his parents have decided to treat him with an alternative treatment based on diet, including a focus on raw vegetables.I applaud them and their ability to resist the Chemotherapy Mentality.
The province did not intervene according to officials because the boy's illness is not currently life threatening. Healthcare providers at the hospital, Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario, say that chemotherapy is the boy's best chance to prevent the cancer from spreading, but that they will not pressure government authorities to force the boy to receive the chemo.
