This is exactly what is happening to Christina Dixon and her daughter Kylee—in spite of the fact that stopping chemo and using alternative treatment has worked.
"The only reason I'm in this position is because I stood up for my daughter's life when she was on her last breath," said Christina. "I'm literally getting punished for saving my daughter's life."
When Kylee was 11-years-old, she was diagnosed with Undifferentiated Embryonal Sarcoma, a rare kind of liver cancer that happens mainly in children. For several grueling months, Kylee underwent chemotherapy for the cancer, which they said began to kill her.
When Christina and Kylee decided that Kylee had enough of the chemo, they decided to stop and refused the doctor's orders. For making their own decision to stop the chemo and switching to an alternative treatment — which according to Christina, literally saver her daughter's life — Kylee was kidnapped by the state.
