Childhood leukemia has a high cure rate, but at the mercy of chemo and it's side effects. If our child has it, we would want to do natural therapies instead. What are our rights? We are educated parents, and are mentally able to understand what is happening. We would welcome a free consult about this. How does it work if a parent refuses to do chemo? Especially, initially?
This is a very difficult question and I doubt there is one simple answer. In New Jersey, a parent has a right to refuse vaccinations for their children on religious grounds. However, if there is an issue that the child's danger could be at risk, then it is possible that there could be an issue. These would likely be issues addressed by a medical expert.
