HELP KATIE - URGENT!!!!!

WE NEED YOUR HELP FOR KATIE:

IF YOU KNOW OF A CHILDREN'S ONCOLOGIST THAT IS VERY LIBERAL IN TREATMENT METHODS AND USES ALTERNATIVE METHODS PLEASE CONTACT US AT ONCE. CALL 361-998-2021 .

We need an oncologist or doctor that takes kids and has experience with cancer as an EXPERT WITNESS against the child protective services. Someone willing to say after looking at the facts that the radiation treatments may cause more harm than good at this time and that it may not or is not necessary or prudent to treat while there is no active cancer cells.

We risk having Katie taken away from us and placed in state care and given radiation treatments she doesn't even want.

We are being charged with MEDICAL NEGLECT defined as:
  • failing to seek, obtain, or follow through with medical care for a child, with the failure resulting in or presenting a substantial risk of death, disfigurement, or bodily injury or with the failure resulting in an observable and material impairment to the growth, development, or functioning of the child.

We requested a third opinion and another PET scan to be done before Katie has any radiation done to prove whether the cancer is active at all. It has been 2 months since the last chemo and 30 days since the last PET scan. It hasn't been approved yet.

We want the best care for our Katie and we also want to protect her from harm. That is the duty of any good parents. Parents should also be able to make the medical decisions for their own children. Dr. Alter never gave us a choice or input in the treatments for Katie and he proved that when he was offered alternative solutions to a blood transfusion earlier including using blood from Katie's own mother, which was acceptable to us, which he rejected.
