He said that he believes the chemo would kill him. That's not showing sanity. Chemo has been proven helpful in the fight against cancer. Now, I don't expect a 13 year old to automatically know that, but that's what parents are for. If they aren't making decisions that are in the best interest of their child, they should not be allowed to have children.
