Dr. Kadman: Return the Child Patient to Israel

Parents of a 12-year-old cancer patient sent him to live in a Thailand monestary for alternative treatment until full recovery. Chairman of the Children’s Welfare Council Dr. Yitzchak Kadman demands the Court order his return. “Parents do not own their child, and alternative treatments are available in Israel.

The child’s mother explained, “Parents are responsible for the health of their children, and sometimes must make such important decisions for their protection. Physicians only know how to manage a condition in a limited way, and now we look forward to our son’s full recovery.”
