Student returns home from chemo after she initially refused the treatment
Cassandra Callander, a seventeen year old student in Connecticut, refused treatment for Hodgkin's Lymphoma. The state argued that the girl was young and immature to see the severity of her disease.

The state did not like this and they reported her mother to the department of Children and Families. The court took temporary custody of the teen and shortly after her mother cooperated. With treatment Cassandra has an 80 - 85 percent of living and so her doctor testified against her in court. The families main argument was that they should be able to do whatever they want with their bodies and not have to "poison" it with chemo.
