This is important because of the fact that even CNN has done a news report on Landon's progress between when he started chemo and when he started using the liquid form of Cannabis, and the results were amazing. Look at the picture above. Don't let Denver's Childrens Hospital say that "They DO NOT see Cannabis as a treatment for cancer & to make a long 2 hour visit short, they feel I am sentencing Landon to a for sure death by not keeping him on the chemo & steroids for another 3 years and endangering his life. So they have "no choice" but to report me to the police & CPS. They want to take my son away bc I am refusing chemo!" (from Sierra Riddle herself). As her Facebook post has updated to say, "UPDATE: Will be long so sorry... As most of you read, today I met with Landons new Oncologists here in Colorado Springs, they are a part of the Denver Children's. Landon & I moved here full time 2 weeks ago to further safely seek the Cannabis treatment that he has been on since January. I made the decision 2 end chemo in mid May. The cannabis has been keeping Landons cancer in remission, he gets regular lab work, all his counts continue to be outstanding. Well in meeting with his new Drs. today shit hit the fan! They DO NOT see Cannabis as a treatment for cancer & to make a long 2 hour visit short, they feel I am sentencing Landon to a for sure death by not keeping him on the chemo & steroids for another 3 years and endangering his life. So they have "no choice" but to report me to the police & CPS. They want to take my son away bc I am refusing chemo! When did this "Land of the Free" become a prison where Doctors have more say about the treatments your child gets than you do???!!! They want to take him away from me for one reason and one reason only, not because he is in danger or not well taken care of but so that they can GIVE HIM CHEMO & STEROIDS! Can this nightmare be real? He is responding amazingly to the cannabis, his Blood Work is immaculate, especially for a cancer patient! How can they not see the proof that is right before their eyes?! Cannabis is fighting his cancer! I refuse to let them make & keep my son sick for another 3 years. I will fight for not only Landons right to a good quality of life and compassionate cancer treatment but also for my right as a mother! And a single mom at that! We need to get Landons story out to as many News Stations, Magazines, TV Stations, and all across the USA! I will not be silenced and bullied into giving my son chemo by the Big Pharmaceutical's that run this Health Industry!! Take a stand with me for Landon and for your own children because your rights as a parent may be next!! If you have any ideas, connections, anything please please let me know! I need SO much help on this! Im just one little ole single mom from Hobbs New Mexico..but together we are many and we are strong!!! Lets make some real noise yall for Landons Fight!!!!!" Here is the YouTube video for Landon's Story. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nU2sozW46i8

      Extra prayers are needed. The head Dr at memorial Childrens is dead set on forcing Landon to chemo. The meeting with CPS ending in I either work with them to reach a chemo plan for the rest of landons treatment or take it to court in which I would need an oncologist to take the stand and give their medical recommendation for no chemo my heart is broken.... HELP

      Here is an update from her Facebook: Ok guys and girls, I need y'all to seriously START PRAYING a hedge of protection over Landon and I! The ball on this fight for our rights is about to start rolling! I will be interviewed for a Denver News Station, and while making sure to be careful on my words of choice, I'm sure this will start a chain effect. As you all know my son is in amazing care daily, is very well taken care of, and has a great life! But only because I am refusing chemo and going a natural way they want to report me to Child Protective Services & Law Enforcement and take Landon to force him to do chemo the remaining 3 years. This is NOT RIGHT! Please help and send up some prayers as we all know CPS tends to think they are "God" and legally they can come take Landon from me bc they have been given that power! Help me fight for Landon! And pray for us PLEASE! Visit the Team Landon page here: https://www.facebook.com/OfferHopeForLandon?directed_target_id=0

      Parent's know their children best and should never be told or forced in choosing one treatment over another.
