Child Cancer Patient Returns Home

The mother and cancer-stricken son who went on the lam last week in order to avoid chemotherapy have returned to their home in Minnesota and will now see a judge to hear their fates. Colleen Hauser, who believes in American Indian medicine and has actively avoided exposing her son to chemotherapy, will continue to seek treatment for her son that isn’t “toxic.” But this time, it seems that the court will drop charges for her evasion of the law and order her once again to keep her son in chemotherapy–and it’s likely she’ll play by the rules. “They always expected to return,” said the lawyer who helped bring them home. “She’s horrified people perceive her as hiding out. That isn’t what she intended.”
