Cherrix Headed Back For Radiation Treatment

June 20, 2007

Abraham Cherrix, the Virginia teenager who won a court battle to get non-traditional cancer treatment, is going back to Mississippi for his third round of radiation treatment.

Cherrix, now 17, says that he will spend about a month at the cancer clinic getting pinpoint treatment for a small tumor that showed up on his right lung during a scan last week.

He says that the fact that the tumor has not shown up anywhere else means the tumor is retreating. Abraham's mother, Rose Cherrix, says that her son will probably be in Mississippi four or five weeks for this round of radiation treatment.
