Parents in Dispute With Texas over Teen's Cancer Treatments

Today's AP has the story: "The parents of a 13-year-old cancer patient who have been fighting the state over her medical treatment will be allowed to take her to Kansas to pursue intravenous Vitamin C treatment. First, however, the girl must undergo five days of chemotherapy, state District Judge Jack Hunter, newly appointed to the case, ruled Friday."

Is it my imagination, or are  these stories of parents fighting to pursue potentially worthless therapies for kids with life-threatening illnesses increasing in frequency?  [tm]
