Mother Refuses Treatment for Son with Cancer

A mother who was ordered by the courts to let her young son undergo chemotherapy in a bid to save the boy's life has admitted she 'doesn't understand' the treatment.

Oshin Strachan was diagnosed with medulloblastoma last December, however his parents, Angela Kiszko and Colin Strachan made the agonising decision to deny him treatment.

In an interview with 60 Minutes on Sunday evening, the six-year-old's mother said she doesn't want her son's brain 'fried with radiation' and did not agree with the treatment despite it's potential to drastically extend his life expectancy.
