The judge also ruled that the primary form of treatment for their son’s cancer should be chemotherapy, as doctors had recommended — and the parents were ordered to get him started on it within the next 28 days.
Bland and McAdams initially requested to treat their son’s cancer with a more homeopathic approach, involving CBD oil, alkaline water, mushroom tea, herbal extracts, and dietary changes, which they claimed to have already started and seen success with.
