Judge Orders Teen to Cancer Treatment

A judge ruled that a 16-year-old boy fighting to use alternative treatment for his cancer must report to a hospital and accept treatment that doctors deem necessary, the family's attorney said.

The judge also found Starchild Abraham Cherrix's parents were neglectful for allowing him to pursue alternative treatment of a sugar-free, organic diet and herbal supplements supervised by a clinic in Mexico, lawyer John Stepanovich said.

A legal defense fund has been set up for the family. Legal defense donations can be sent to:

Abraham Cherrix Legal Defense Fund

c/o RBC Centura Bank

Abraham's trial is scheduled for August 16th.
