Sally Roberts, Mother Of Cancer Son Neon, To Discover Result Of High Court Fight

Posted: Updated:

A woman who does not want her seven-year-old son to have radiotherapy treatment following surgery on a brain tumour should discover today whether she has won a High Court fight.

Sally Roberts, 37, a New Zealander who lives in Brighton, East Sussex, fears that radiotherapy will cause long-term harm and says she thinks that "credible" alternative treatment is available.

Doctors say Neon might die within months without radiotherapy

A specialist treating her son Neon accepts that there are side-effects to radiotherapy but says that without the treatment the youngster could die within a few months.

Neon Roberts underwent more surgery on a brain tumour on Wednesday - against his mother's wishes.

Mr Justice Bodey, who heard evidence at a hearing in the Family Division of the High Court in London yesterday, said he aims to deliver a ruling today.
