Fight Over Child Leukemia Treatment Heads to Court as Parents Oppose Chemo
WRIGHT COUNTY, Minn. (FOX 9) – A parents fight over cancer treatment for their young son headed into a Wright County courtroom Friday.
5-year old Keaton Peck was recently diagnosed with leukemia. His medical care team is insisting on a two-plus year chemo regimen to fight the disease. But his mother and father prefer natural therapies.
“My goal is to heal him the way his body best reacts to, with zero side effects,” explained McKena Peck, the child’s mom, who was one of several witnesses to testify at the evidentiary hearing.
