The parents of a US teenager who ran away with his mother after refusing treatment for cancer have said he can now be given chemotherapy.

Daniel Hauser, 13, has Hodgkin’s lymphoma and had been warned that he would die without medical attention.

But his mother, Colleen, had said her religious beliefs meant she wished to treat his cancer with natural methods.

A judge had ordered Daniel to be placed in foster care but repealed the order on condition that he receive treatment.

Mrs Hauser told a court hearing in Brown County that she now believed chemotherapy was the best option for her son, reported the Associated Press news agency.

Judge John Rodenberg said Daniel should remain with his parents but that “this course of chemotherapy has to commence and commence soon”.
