Listed at the NCMEC as Case Type: Endangered Missing 13-year-old Daniel Hauserwas allegedly taken by his mother after failing to appear in court concerning their refusal to allow doctors to treat him for Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer.

Brown County District Court Judge John R. Rodenberg ordered the family to have Daniel son X-rayed and choose an oncologist before a review hearing on Tuesday. The father appeared in court  but his wife and son did not. In court testimony, doctors have testified Daniel has a 90 percent chance of survival with treatment and a 95 percent chance he will die without it.

Daniel was last seen on May 18, 2009. He may be in the company of his mother, Colleen Hauser. A warrant was issued for Colleen on May 19, 2009. They may travel out of the country. Daniel may be in need of medical attention.

The parents are refusing conventional medical treatment based on religious grounds. The “religion” appears to be somewhat unconventional according to this Associated Press article.

 

The Nemenhah Band, based in Weaubleau, Mo., advocates healing methods tied to American Indian practices. The Hausers are not American Indian.

Phillip Cloudpiler Landis founded Nemenhah about a decade ago and calls himself its principal medicine chief. He said it was prompted by his own bout with cancer, which he claims to have cured through diet, visits to a sweat lodge and other natural remedies.

Landis served several months in prison in Idaho for fraud tied to the sale of natural remedies. Nemenhah members are asked to pay $250 to join and an annual $100 fee.

SLEEPY EYE, Minnesota (CNN) — The father of a cancer-stricken 13-year-old boy taken by his mother to avoid the boy undergoing chemotherapy appealed Thursday for his wife to return home with the youth.

 

“Please bring Danny home so that we can decide as a family what Danny’s treatment should be,” Anthony Hauser said, reading haltingly from a piece of paper he held in one hand outside the family’s house.

“I know you’re scared and I feel that you left out of fear, maybe without thinking it all the way through,” he continued. “Danny is my son and the rest of the family is worried sick about Danny, how he is and how he’s going to come out.

“Please call me and let’s talk about how you can come back here and we can get this worked out, what’s best for Danny.”

Update 05-23-09: Leader of Internet-based group urges fleeing mother and cancer-stricken son to return home


STOCKTON, Mo. (AP) — A southwest Missouri man runs an Internet-based group that’s in the spotlight because of one of its members fled with her cancer-stricken son to avoid chemotherapy.

Philip Cloudpiler Landis leads the Nemenhah (nuh-MEHN’-hah) Band, which he says has about 4,000 members across the U.S. He calls it a religion based on natural healing.

Update 05-25-09: Minn. cancer patient back home, sees doctor

NEW ULM, Minn. (AP) — A 13-year-old cancer patient and his mother who spent nearly a week on the run to avoid chemotherapy must again place the boy’s medical fate in the hands of a judge. And this time, an attorney said she believes they’ll do what the court orders.

Jennifer Keller, the attorney who helped return Colleen and Daniel Hauser to Minnesota on Monday, said the mother will continue to seek permission to use alternative treatments for her son’s cancer “that aren’t toxic.”

“But she’ll abide by what the court says,” Keller said.

Daniel and Colleen Hauser arrived back in Minnesota about 3 a.m. Monday on a private jet after fleeing the state nearly a week earlier, prompting a nationwide search.

Update 05-28-09: Daniel Hauser will stay with parents after they agree to chemotherapy

NEW ULM, Minn. – A judge returned 13-year-old Daniel Hauser to his parents’ custody today despite objections from the Brown County attorney in New Ulm.

During a one-hour hearing, Brown County District Judge John Rodenberg asked both parents, Anthony and Colleen Hauser, if they understood that Daniel needs chemotherapy to save his life. Both said: “Yes.”

The judge then said: “I take you at your word” and transferred his custody back to the parents.

Calvin P. Johnson, the attorney representing the Hauser’s, on May 20th said his case was one of Love vs Power. Apparently now it is about Money and Communication.
