MINNEAPOLIS – The parents of a Minnesota teenager who once fled the state to avoid chemotherapy are asking a judge to end the court's role in the case.
Thirteen-year-old Daniel Hauser is undergoing radiation for Hodgkin's lymphoma. He finished his chemotherapy treatments in early September.
In an affidavit filed in Brown County District Court, Daniel's mother, Colleen, says the family is following the court's orders and the advice of doctors. She says the county doesn't need to supervise Daniel's treatments because there's no evidence he's being neglected.
Colleen Hauser says the family will make sure Daniel gets the best medical care. They initially rejected chemo for religious reasons, saying it harms the body.
A hearing is set for later Monday.
