After a long legal struggle Abraham and his family have regained the power to pursue the treatment they believe will provide the most effective cure to Hodgkin's disease!
On Wednesday, August 16, 2006 Accomack Circuit Court Judge Glen Tyler cleared Abraham's parents of all charges of medical neglect and allowed Abraham to pursue alternative treatment under a doctor of the family's choice.
Although prepared for a two-day trial, the family was able to reach a settlement with the Department of Social Services Abraham will now be able to pursue a preferred course of treatment while being monitored by a board-certified oncologist in Mississippi who is experienced in alternative cancer treatment viagra online pharmacy.
With this decision Abraham is now able to resume life with his family and continue fighting for his health generic cialis.

In late August of 2005, fifteen year old Abraham Cherrix received the devastating news that he had a form of cancer known as Hodgkin's disease. During the next few months Abraham faithfully pursued conventional chemotherapy through its recommended cycle. However, in February of 2006 he learned that chemotherapy had not cured the disease.
Doctors then recommended a higher dosage of chemotherapy combined with radiation and culminating in stem cell treatment, offering Abraham less than a 50% chance of survival under this treatment. This time the Cherrix family did their own research, contacted many other cancer victims and survivors, prayed, and discussed all their options. After reflecting on the brutal side-effects of the previously ineffective treatment and the hope offered by in a natural remedy, Abraham and his family chose to pursue alternative treatment in Mexico. A legal battle has ensued.
The Cherrix family has placed life on hold to pursue treatment for their son. Since early May, the family has been involved in continuous litigation with the Department of Social Services to continue their desired course of treatment. In the Juvenile and Domestic Court, the parents faced charges of neglect, loss of custody of their son, and orders to submit to the recommended cycle of higher dosage chemotherapy and radiation by Tuesday, July 25, 2006.
On Tuesday, minutes before this order was to take effect, the family obtained a stay from the Circuit Court; the parents regained full custody of their son and Abraham is now free to continue his desired course of treatment . . . for the moment. The family is due back in court on August 16, 2006 for another trial to determine whether Abraham may pursue his desired choice of treatment. Both parties will most likely appeal the verdict to a higher Virginia court.
The Cherrix family has found that they are not alone in this type of struggle. Although few families have had the resources to pursue their rights all the way through the judicial system, many have come forward to share personal stories of their legal struggle to obtain medical treatment of their choice.
The Cherrix family is committed to providing the best care for Abraham and to fight for their rights to make informed medical decisions as a family, to disagree with conventional, yet inconclusive treatment, and to pursue long-standing natural cures. The family's business is on hold and their remaining resources are being exhausted through travel, medical care, and extended litigation. Yet they continue to argue this case of national concern.
A nonprofit organization, Abraham's Journey, has been created to assist in situations such as these. For more information on this 501(c)(3) corporation, click on Donate.
