State of Michigan Sues Parents to Force Chemo on Cancer-free Child

UPDATE March, 2012: State of Michigan Appeals Case Against Parents to Force Chemo on Cancer-free Child

UPDATE 12/21/2011 CASE DISMISSED! From WoodTV.com:

Judge Solka wrote in his ruling, “The court concludes as a matter of law that Jacob’s parents have not been negligent in making decisions about his (Jacob’s) course of treatment…

“The court is not making a finding that Jacob does not have cancer. A second opinion of a pediatric oncologist on additional treatment would be reasonable and should be considered by the parents…

“These decisions are better made in a clinical setting without resort to the courts. This is a physician-patient issue. The court should become involved only if an impasse is reached. The court does not find such an impasse here that the state should intervene and the family subjected to the rigors and uncertain outcome of a jury trial.”

Original Story:

Jacob Stieler was diagnosed with cancer back in March of 2011. After chemo and radiation treatment, multiple scans indicate he’s cancer free. However, his doctors have ordered further treatment–something Jacob and his parents oppose. Now the State of Michigan is taking the Jacob’s parents to court, charging them with neglect.

From the Stieler’s blog at hopeforjacob.org:

July 18th

Wednesday, I got a phone call from the social worker at the hospital where Jacob has been.   She informed me since we are refusing radiation for Jacob, they would be filing a petition for court.  I was in shock!  Well, not totally.  In shock for the fact that my son in CANCER-FREE!!!  Anyway, Friday morning comes and I am woke up by the sound of Child Protective Services knocking on our door.  I was disgusted to find out that the hospital lied and said that he would have a 0% chance of survival if he didn’t follow through with it (that number was NEVER given to me).  Second, they with-held the fact that his PET Scan came back clear and he is, in fact, cancer-free.   I am disgusted by the fact that they were deceitful.  What happened to parent’s rights?  We are not being foolish and not taking further action with Jacob.  We are taking him to a place to build up his immune system, get some healthy weight back on his bones and he will have multiple therapies to heal his worn body.    The fact that they want to give him almost 2 months of radiation plus 6 months more of chemo – both of which cause cancer – when no cancer is present, is completely shocking!  Please be praying for all of us!  Jacob is scared and worried!   He already told me that if they make him do chemo and radiation, that he will kill himself!  Satan sure is working overtime, but God is in control!!!

October 14th

First things first, Jacob is doing wonderful!  He is happy and healthy, going to school full time and loving life!!!  He turned 10 years old a couple weeks ago and was able to go bow-hunting October 1st.  He shot a 6-pt. buck and was ecstatic!!  I’ve been hunting for years and never got one.  He certainly deserves it though.

In the meantime, we’ve been checked-up on by CPS for the past 3 months.  “Just doin’ their job” while the case is still open.   It wasn’t going anywhere….CPS couldn’t find a reason for medical neglect like the hospital was claiming and either could the prosecuting attorney.  That sure didn’t stop the hospital from whining and got another big children’s hospital involved to complain, which is also downstate (I’m not supposed to mention names, but I’m sure you can all figure it out).   Doctors from both hospitals acted very irrational and immature because apparently everyone up here “is incompetent – they don’t know how to handle a case such as this”.  Well, DHS ended up filing a petition.  We have been to court a few times.   Crazy things keep happening to keep it from going further.  We’re already on our second judge.

Yesterday we went to court again.  Had a useless meeting first and then the lawyers met with the new judge.  There is now an actual trial set for the first week of December.  There will be a jury.  This trial is for two things.  First, they are still pushing to have Jacob have 6 more months of chemotherapy and 2 months of radiation.  Two of the chemotherapy drugs that he was on and would be on are mustard gas – yes, chemical warfare.  Another one is nicknamed “red death” and can potentially cause major heart damage.  Another has chloroform in it and the other two are just as capable of causing cancer.  Yes…it’s all POISON!  And I’m sure most of you know how horrible radiation is.   Oh, and did I forget to mention again that Jacob is CANCER-FREE!!!!  Yes, he had another PET Scan a few weeks ago and still NO CANCER!   They truly believe that poisoning my child is the best thing for his health.  It doesn’t matter that we have doctors currently keeping any eye on him.  It doesn’t matter that he’s had a lifestyle change and we’re doing multiple things to keep him healthy.  It doesn’t matter that we’re going to keep getting PET Scans done every 3 months.  It doesn’t matter that we would certainly get him into treatment the moment one of those scans came up showing cancer.  They’re not happy with that answer.  Is it because they’re not getting their $60,000 a month?  And that’s not counting radiation.

Okay…now let’s talk about the other side to this story.  Another reason for this whole trial is the fact that they’re trying to set an example with us – to not question the doctors or the state, for that matter.  We’re all just basically “foster-parents” to our children.  The state actually owns them and they have a right to decide what’s best for our kids.  We, as parents, do not!  I hope you are all as outraged at this as we are!!!  What happened to our rights??  This is certainly not a free country that we’re all fooled into believing.  Doesn’t the 14th amendment mean anything??

If this makes you furious, please let us know!  Let Governor Snyder know.  Let our Senator and State Reps know.  Let DHS know.   We need to stand up for our rights as parents that we know what’s best for our children and that we should ultimately have the right to decide what’s best.  Not some strangers who don’t know a thing about our children or us for that matter.

As bizarre as this whole situation is, and believe me – you don’t even know half of it, we’re trusting God!  We know this is all happening for a reason.  Not quite sure what it is yet, but God has a plan.  He cares about Jacob.  He loves him more than we do.  God has been taking care of us this whole time since day one back in March.  He keeps on blessing us in so many ways and we are so thankful!  He is truly an awesome God!!!  Please continue to pray for us, for this whole situation.  That the truth would be revealed.  That God’s will would be done!  Also, please continue to pray for Jacob, that he would continue to stay cancer-free and that he would get stronger each and every day.

October 23

When does the State of Michigan have the right to interfere with decisions made by parents concerning the care of their children?  This is the question that will be answered in a jury trial on December 6-7 at the County Court.  Our son, 10-year-old Jacob Stieler has had two clear PET scans in the past 4 months meaning there is no evidence of cancer in Jacob’s body, yet still the Department of Human Services is being pressured by a large children’s hospital in lower Michigan to force him to undergo 6 more months and several weeks of radiation treatments just because this is the “standard of care” protocol, based on studies that have been done on other children, not Jacob.  After going through 2 ½ months of watching Jacob suffer physically and emotionally from his chemo treatments, we were so very grateful to get the results of his PET scan in July which showed no evidence of the cancer which could not be surgically removed in March.  Despite all of our efforts to support his body through treatment, he still lost 14 pounds, and looked like a concentration camp victim after those 2 ½ months.  Now, after receiving some non-traditional therapies to help him regain his lost weight and build up his immune system, Jacob looks like a normal healthy young boy, and is ever so glad to be finished with chemo.  Should Jacob’s cancer return, we, as his parents, will want to be able to choose where to go for treatment, and what kind of treatment we believe will be best for our child.  Except in cases where parents are proven to be unfit, abusive, or neglectful, the State has never been given the right to make these choices, and never should be.  If we do not retain this right as Jacob’s parents, and the ones who have been given the responsibility by God to care for him, what will keep the State from interfering on any number of choices that we parents make concerning the care of our children, medical or otherwise?

According to Jacob’s doctors, 30% of the children who follow their treatment plan are not alive in five years.  Is this because of the damage caused by these very toxic drugs, which can even cause healthy, normal cells to become cancerous?  We have not been given answers to these questions.  There don’t seem to be any answers.  Unbiased studies have not been done.  We hope that in December the jury will remember that it is our right as parents to make any difficult medical decisions for Jacob, this beautiful son that we love far more than the State of Michigan ever could.

Note: the trial was postponed until January

How the Government has Earned $3.5 BILLION from the Claim that Vaccines Don’t Cause Autism

How the Government has Earned $3.5 BILLION from the Claim that Vaccines Don’t Cause Autism

Pin It

Few among the American public truly understand just how huge the U.S. vaccine market is. Not only do drug companies reap huge profits from vaccines, so too does the U.S. government.

For example, did you know that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has accumulated $3.5 BILLION in vaccine tax revenue which is currently “sitting” in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund?

This trust fund was established in 1988 “to compensate vaccine-related injury or death claims for covered vaccines.” The money in this fund comes from a $0.75 excise tax on vaccines recommended by the CDC.

So why does this Trust Fund have such a high balance, instead of paying medical expenses to families with vaccine damaged children? Probably because the government has decided that vaccines do not cause autism, the most common claim filed in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program since its inception in 1986.

Boy Held by Chicago Hospital in Medical Kidnapping Case Returns Home

Boy Held by Chicago Hospital in Medical Kidnapping Case Returns Home

Local Fox News affiliate Fox4kc in Kansas City has reported that 17-year-old Isaiah Rider has returned home to Kansas City, even though the State of Illinois still retains his custody rights. Isaiah was released from Luries Children’s Hospital in Chicago where he was being held against his will, and the will of his family. He is reportedly staying with grandparents while his mother fights back against “medical abuse” charges for disagreeing with the hospital’s treatment and wanting to transfer him to a different hospital. Isaiah lost 5 months of his life to confinement in a hospital, and is now anxious to get back to school and resume his life.

Isaiah’s mother Michelle believes they held her son to conduct medical experimentation on his rare disease, Neurofibromatosis. Michelle will return to Chicago Friday to face trial. But in the meantime, at least Isaiah is back home in Kansas City, staying with his grandparents.

Are GMO Foods, Vaccines, and Big Pharma Producing an Infertile Generation?

Are GMO Foods, Vaccines, and Big Pharma Producing an Infertile Generation?

The U.S. fertility rates are at all-time record lows. Are we watching the leading edge of a slowly moving tidal wave of infertility? I wasn’t sure what is really happening with human fertility until I took a hard look at the data and the science. I now believe that there is strong reason to be concerned about the emerging trend of infertility. What is causing the current generation of child-bearing aged adults to become infertile?

CDC’s Purchase of $4 Billion of Vaccines a Conflict of Interest in Overseeing Vaccine Safety

CDC’s Purchase of $4 Billion of Vaccines a Conflict of Interest in Overseeing Vaccine Safety

Pin It

Do you trust the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to oversee vaccine safety, when they have an annual budget of over $4 billion to purchase vaccines from drug companies? In 2015, they want to increase that amount by another half a billion dollars.

Dr. Brian Hooker says the CDC should not be trusted to oversee vaccine safety, and after 10 years of fighting legal battles with the CDC via Freedom of Information requests to secure raw data on vaccine safety studies, he now has solid evidence to back up his claim of fraud within the CDC.

In a shocking news story that rocked the online world but was almost totally ignored by the mainstream media a couple of weeks ago, senior vaccine scientist Dr. William Thompson was revealed as a whistleblower within the CDC, admitting that the CDC had withheld information from a key study in 2004 that supposedly showed that the MMR childhood vaccine was safe.

The CDC was forced to issue a response, and Dr. Hooker has now shown that the CDC response is clearly trying to cover up ethical lapses and explain away key data that was omitted from their original study. This data which was hidden from the public for more than 10 years was not favorable towards their own bias and what they wanted the public to believe about vaccines and autism. Dr. Hooker has clearly shown that the CDC has a conflict of interest, and cannot be trusted with research on vaccine safety when it is spending more than $4 billion of taxpayer funds to purchase vaccines from drug manufacturers.

So what’s next? Will this fraud within the CDC be allowed to continue? There are reports that there are other whistleblowers within the CDC that would like to come forward, but are too fearful at this point. Dr. William Thompson is now represented by one of the top whistleblower attorneys in the nation, and has reportedly turned over more than 1000 documents to Congressman Bill Posey.

The pharmaceutical industry is the richest and most powerful political lobby in the world, however. Will there be enough members of Congress to come forward and oppose them? Does the American public even care enough about this issue to take action and threaten lawmakers who refuse to act and remove vaccine safety oversight from the CDC? Will they demand that taxpayer funds NOT be increased by over a half billion dollars next year to fund the purchase of more vaccines that are produced by pharmaceutical companies who are convicted criminals, and whose products have not been proven safe?

Alzheimer’s Disease is a modern plague on the seniors in our society. More evidence continues to be published that Alzheimer’s is primarily a prescription drug induced disease. Coconut oil is an alternative to toxic drugs that has shown tremendous results in helping or even reversing Alzheimer’s disease. But your doctor will not likely know about either the causes of Alzheimer’s disease, or how coconut oil can help. Here is what you need to know.
