NEW ULM, Minn. – A 13-year-old boy with cancer who fled Minnesota last month to avoid chemotherapy says he's angry that a judge has ruled he must continue getting the treatment.
Daniel Hauser told The Associated Press he had hoped he would instead be able to stop chemotherapy, which he says makes him dizzy and gives him headaches.
A judge had ruled earlier Tuesday that the teen must continue chemotherapy after court documents showed Daniel's tumor had shrunk significantly following a recent round.
Daniel wasn't in court Tuesday but spoke with the AP at his family's Sleepy Eye farm. He says he believes his tumor's improvement comes from alternative treatments such as supplemental drinks and pills he's taking.
The teen and his mother had previously fled Minnesota for about a week to avoid chemotherapy.
