A girl named Cassandra C. who lives in Connecticut was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma a type of cancer. Doctors prescribed her with chemotherapy treatment and said without this treatment she could die within two years. Cassandra refused the treatment and said she would rather use alternative treatment and not have chemicals put into her body. Her family sued the state state of Connecticut for the right to make her own medical decisions and not undergo chemotherapy. The supreme court found that Cassandra was too immature to be able to make her own decisions and ruled that she is required to take the chemotherapy. The reasoning behind the court decision was in prior instances Cassandra had run away and tried to escape chemotherapy treatment multiple times.

Currently her cancer is in remission and she is still confined to the hospital.
