Update on Abraham Cherrix and his cancer treatment

Back in August this young man went to court to avoid a second round of conventional cancer treatment for Hodgkin’s disease in favor of CAM.

Here’s an update.

The Washington Post reports he’s doing fine after spending six weeks at a Mississippi clinic where he was treated by a new oncologist.

His father said the radiation “dramatically” shrank the tumor in his neck.

An earlier article stated that he also received natural supplements and diet to bolster his immune system.

Nothing has been written since then. So, I guess he’s doing OK.
