NEW ULM, Minnesota (CNN) -- "A review hearing has been scheduled for Tuesday afternoon in the case of a 13-year-old cancer patient who fled from Minnesota with his mother in an attempt to avoid chemotherapy.


Colleen Hauser was reportedly concerned about the side effects of chemotherapy used to treat her son.
2 of 2 Daniel Hauser and his mother, Colleen Hauser, were last seen in their hometown of Sleepy Eye on May 18, one day after a doctor said the boy's Hodgkin's lymphoma was worsening.

Hodgkin's lymphoma is a type of cancer that affects the lymphatic system, which is part of the immune system. As the disease progresses, it compromises a body's ability to fight infection.

Colleen Hauser was planning to take Daniel to Mexico for natural treatment, but decided to return home, a family spokesman said Tuesday.

"They were down in California ... on the way to Mexico," Dan Zwakman told CNN's "American Morning."

"They were seeking an alternate treatment ... the natural herbal and such different therapies versus the chemo and radiation they do in America." Watch spokesman describe family's emotions ยป

On Monday, the lawyer for the Hausers said the mother will accept whatever course of treatment a court may order. Colleen Hauser is prepared to allow her son Daniel to undergo chemotherapy, defense lawyer Jennifer Keller said.

"My understanding is that Colleen intends to abide by whatever orders the court makes and that she wants to put her best case forward for her son to have a chance at alternative treatment," Keller told CNN.

Judge John R. Rodenberg of the Brown County District Court issued an arrest warrant for Colleen Hauser when she and her son failed to show up for a court hearing May 19. He said the boy's "best interests" require he receive conventional medical care

The warrant was rescinded after the pair's return.

Zwakman said Daniel was evaluated by a doctor after his arrival. He did not know about the doctor's findings, he said, but the teen seemed to be in good spirits.

"Danny was out with the weed whacker attacking the weeds in the garden," Zwakman said.

The hearing in New Ulm, Minnesota, is planned for 2 or 2:30 p.m.

The Hausers returned to their hometown at 3 a.m. Monday aboard a chartered flight paid for by Asgaard Media of Corona, California. The company describes itself on its Web site as "founded and advised by a group of forward-thinking, positive-minded individuals wanting to make a difference."

Attempts to reach the company Tuesday were unsuccessful.

Zwakman said the planned trip to Mexico became too overwhelming for the Hausers.

"Being on the road and being nowhere, probably the first time being out in their own area, they hit a wall and didn't know what else to do," Zwakman said.


In February, the boy's cancer responded to an initial round of chemotherapy. But the treatment's side effects concerned the boy's parents, who decided not to pursue further chemotherapy and solicited other medical opinions. The family opted instead for a holistic medical treatment based on Native American healing practices called Nemenhah.

Daniel's symptoms of persistent cough, fatigue and swollen lymph nodes were diagnosed in January as Hodgkin's lymphoma. Court documents show doctors estimated the boy's chance of five-year remission with more chemotherapy, and possibly radiation, at 80 to 95 percent."

It's terrible treatment...my mother went through it, and it almost killed her. It was back in the 60's...and it made her almost sicker then the cancer.

albeit...she did survive and lived ...on to die in her sleep of old age and not cancer...it was still a horrible treatment. And I know there are many other better ways to treat cancer...but of course they would not be making the "big bucks" otherwise.

Just my point of view....for what ever it's worth...I will choose not to do chemo.

you go with your gut instinct, brook...
***
my sister bella had cancer when she was 16
she did what the adults told her to do
first was surgery
then radiation
then they started the chemo
***
at some point in her chemo, she said no more
they said she would die in 6 mos
she said, i will not live like this
***
she went to a nutritionist who put her on a regimen
of "real" food and different herb teas
she went to a hypnotherapist who guided her visualization...
she visualized removing and destroying the bad cells
and replacing them with healthy ones
***
she is now 53 and in the hospital being treated for
infection before they can operate on an aneurism -
her immune system was never the same after the
radiation and what chemo she rec'd, her body is
now suffering from the results of that original traditional
treatment...
***
when she was 17, someone gave her a book to read,
"The Seth Material", then she passed it along to me...
that was 35 years ago, we have each had quite the journey/ride,
and i always admired and respected her so much for her
strength, even though she was fragile... her spirit was strong
***
anyway, i guess the point is, when NB first said you might
be coming over, i thought of bella, and you, and i just
wanted to encourage you to stay centered, be the strong woman
you are, laugh as much as you can and do what you know/feel
is right for you, unique to you
***
and if it is energy you need, healing/loving/accepting/optimistic
vibrations, well, i think this group has plenty to share - i
just wanna give you a big hug
hugv

cannot function properly.
