Review ordered in case of cancer-stricken Texas girl

Review ordered in case of cancer-stricken Texas girl whose parents opposed treatment

Tuesday September 06, 2005
By LYNN BREZOSKY
Associated Press Writer

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) Two independent doctors who specialize in Hodgkin's disease will review the medical records of a 13-year-old girl at the center of a battle over her cancer treatment.
Juvenile Court Judge Carl Lewis agreed to the review Tuesday in a hearing on the custody of Katie Wernecke, who has been in the care of state Child Protective Services since June.
Under the agreement, if the doctors say high-dose chemotherapy followed by radiation is needed, the family will withdraw their objections.
The hearing was continued until Friday to allow the doctors time to review the medical records obtained by the family. The specialists agreed to offer opinions on the course of treatment by then.
Attorney Thomas Stuckey, representing CPS, told Lewis earlier that Katie had been refusing medical care by pulling out catheters and refusing to follow medical directions.
``This is very serious,'' Stuckey said. ``If she does not have this treatment she will die.''
Linda Rhodes-Schauer, an attorney representing Katie, said the teen wanted to stop treatment and be returned to her family. Rhodes-Schauer said Katie's father had told her that one in 10 patients does not survive high-dose chemotherapy.
``I'm here telling you, judge, she wants to go home,'' Rhodes-Schauer said.
Lewis ordered Katie into state custody in June after doctors and social workers said the Werneckes were endangering their daughter's life by refusing radiation treatment for Hodgkin's disease, a cancer of the lymphatic system.
The Werneckes believed chemotherapy had killed the tumor in her chest and they felt radiation treatment would do more harm than good. But at a hearing in June, doctors presented medical scans showing that the cancer had returned.
Lewis ruled then that Katie would remain in CPS custody as she underwent further cancer treatment.
Stuckey blamed Katie's defiance on her father, Ed Wernecke, and asked Lewis on Tuesday to cut off all communication between the girl and her family. Lewis said he was not inclined to do so.
Lewis talked to the girl by phone Tuesday from his chambers.
``She expressed that she just wanted everything explained to her,'' he said. ``She's a little afraid and that's a lot to handle.''

    Really great blog! I noticed a mention about knee arthritis . I thought you might be interested to hear that both my parents and several of their friends have had problems with arthritis and we have been very lucky to have come across Bioflow. They are sold at knee arthritis and they have been worth every penny. They don't seem to work for everyone but they have helped reduce the pain in my parents arthritis so that they almost don't notice it any longer. They'd still be taking painkillers if it wasn't for wearing a Bioflow on their wrist

    **UPDATE! FREE SHIPPING FOR A LIMITED TIME!**

    Better than klear action whitening and ION whitening systems! Half the
    price too!

    Welcome to PerfectlyWhite.com,

    PerfectlyWhite.com is proud to present to you the first ever at home
    laser whitening treatment. We are bringing you the most popular in
    office treatment at home for the fraction of the cost! One laser
    treatment at a doctors office can run around $600 as shown above. This

    between your teeth and deep down below the enamel. This procedure will
    not damage or wear away the enamel.

    How does it work?

    Its very simple. The Plasma light will increase the breakdown speed of
    Carbamide Peroxide, in turn releasing more oxygen which speeds up the
    bleaching process. The oxygen acts as a bleaching agent that whitens
    your teeth safely and effectively. This is why you can pay as much as $600
    to get your teeth whitened professionally.

    Plasma Laser Light Technology!

    Never before seen in any at home whitening kit! Just Like at a real in

    accelerate the whitening process. No one else offers this authentic at
    home tool. Its Very easy to operate and safe to use. Accelerate your
    whitening by as much as 300% with this method! This means whiter teeth
    in less time!

    At last, you no longer have to visit your dentist for that
    white bright smile you have always wanted!

    Our professional dental whitening kit is the same product used by many
    of the top cosmetic dentists. Why consider paying up to $600, when for a
    few short minutes per day, you to can achieve the exact same results in
    the comfort of your own home. Best of all, it will cost you a fraction
    of the price!

    40% stronger than an in-office visit...

    To provide you with superior results, our fully licensed line of
    products is one of the industry's strongest and most effective tooth
    whitening formulas. The main active ingredient is 35% Carbamide Peroxide.
    This concentration is 40% stronger than most dentists use during an in
    office visit!

    A little more about our 7 day plasma treatment:

    Hi,

    It's not often that I am surprised by something I see online.

    And it's even more rare that I stumble upon a book or
    resource that causes me to literally stop what I am doing and
    write a letter to everyone I know.

    But I just discovered that Howard L Moreland -- probably one
    of the best-known and most well-respected experts on the
    subject of free & wholesale advertising -- has just released
    all the details & secret sources listings behind how he used
    free ads to make $1.7 million in under 9 short months and
    make most recently $14,274 in the past 6 days alone, and how
    he continues to make up to $5,000 a day online!

    The truth is, I still can't figure out exactly WHY Howard
    has made this information available, since it gives everyone
    -- including his competitors -- the chance to steal the
    secrets he's spent the last 20 years perfecting --
    particularly the last 5 most of all!

    He shows you everything from growing a super-profitable
    empire as quickly as possible, to generating the highest
    possible revenue from every ad you place, to how to explode
    your business virtually overnight -- all with free (yet very
    effective) ads...

    He also provides you over 50 million places to advertise
    profitably for FREE!! -- All instantly accessible to you
    with instant online links which makes placing all your ads
    for free easy & fun...

    His years of testing are going to completely eliminate all
    of YOUR guesswork!

    The thing is, the advertising industry HAS changed
    dramatically over the past few years. And while company
    after company has gone out of business just trying to keep
    up with all these changes, Howard has continued to generate
    over $3.7 million every year with what he's just giving away
    to you now.

    And this book shows you step-by-step what he did and how he
    did it so you can take his strategies and model them to
    create your own success.

    Plus, with over 50 million places to place your ads, and an
    additional 15,000+ instant links, I was especially impressed
    by the way Howard's book is unlike any other as you can use
    it to start making money literally within just 5 minutes of
    opening it up -- and test -- all the resources and links for
    your own instant use and your own business.

    I still think that Howard's going to regret giving all this
    information away, so I would advise you to grab this book
    while you can! It really does provide you everything you
    need to do to grow your business successfully and
    explosively with FREE ads -- over 50 million of them
    instantly. Find out more at:
