Teen Cancer Patient And Treatment Decision

No more chemotherapy! That's what Starchild Abraham Cherrix telling the judge. He received three months of chemotherapy and this has made him nauseated and weak some times so weak and unable to walk by himself.

When he learned that he is having a recurrence of cancer, he said to the doctors, "No more chemotherapy". Abraham is only 16 years old. The question is: can he decide about his own treatment.

"I think it would kill me the second time," said Abraham. He wants to try a sugar-free organic diet, which is a form of alternative treatment provided in Mexico to treat his Hodgkin's disease.

The judge is hearing the testimony and arguments. Judge has heard 11 hours of testimony. Judge will decide if the teen can make his own medical decisions and live with his parents and four siblings on Chincoteague, an island off Virginia's Eastern Shore.

The judge is expected to issue a written decision by July 18.
