This makes no sense at all.  The boy had non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and was being treated and the plan boasts a 92% cure rate!  Good thing the doctor was on the ball checking on scripts.  My next question that comes to mind, was it financial?   I sure hope not and perhaps the mother had other mental issues, but at any rate, this is a shame.  BD

It seems unimaginable. An 8-year-old autistic boy is diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He is treated, goes into remission and is given an 85 percent to 90 percent chance of survival. But his mom must continue a "five-phase" regimen of chemotherapy at home.

According to court documents, the boy's cancer has returned, and doctors said his chances of survival are now more like 10 percent. Jeremy's dad, Eric Fraser, told reporters Monday that Jeremy might not make it to his ninth birthday, just weeks away.
