Minnesota Boy with Hodgkin's Finished with Chemotherapy

Daniel Hauser, the Minnesota boy with Hodgkin's Lymphoma who was at the center of a legal and moral controversy earlier this year over refusing chemotherapy treatment for his cancer, is once again in the news.

As reported in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the young Hauser has finished his chemotherapy regimen and is said to be doing extremely well—although slightly ill.

Hauser actually finished his regimen 2 cycles early, having 8 instead of 10, and his doses per cycle were about half the normal amount because of his reaction to the high doses.

He'll start radiation treatments in October. His parents claim that the natural remedies they practiced before he began his court-ordered treatments helped "weaken" the tumor prior to chemotherapy, despite the report by doctors that his tumor had grown during that time.
