If you follow the news you know about the child whose family is refusing chemotherapy for his cancer. Right or Wrong. We have all read the results of surveys that state 3 out of 4 doctors would not consider chemo as a cancer treatment.
Chemo may be the best treatment on some cancers but not all of them. What are the statistics on this cancer and chemo? Chemo is a cocktail of chemicals that doctors hope will kill cancer cells before it kills the patient.
There are people alive today who made the choice to go with chemo.
