Katie's Original Story - The Cancer Child Taken by CPS

See the orginal story of Katie at Pray for Katie. Katie had Hodgkin's disease when she was 13 years old. She was taken away from her parents by Child Protection Services (CPS), when her parents refused to follow up with full neck and chest radiation treatments after a clear PET scan saying she was cancer free. The parents were seeking additional opinions when a disgruntled and arrogant doctor called in CPS to make sure his recommendations were followed. Referrals were not made. This case received national attention in news and on television in June through November of 2006. It was a battle for parents to have the right to make the medical decisions for their children. After 5 months the parents won the right to make the medical decisions for Katie again, but not before much damage was done to Katie at the hands of CPS and M. D. Anderson doctors. The trauma and stress and financial damage done to the family and Katie, a cancer patient, are beyound belief and unexcuseable. The story is a long one, but well worth reading. With cancer happening to 1 in 3 now. This could very well happen to your family. Would you know what to do? It happened to Abraham Cherrix and his family. Thanks to some help and knowledge gained from our website, personal contact, and legal documents all contained on the original website, Abraham and his family gained a victory.
