Update on Devon
I have been posting about Devon and the effects of chemotherapy on this 12 year old child for the past year. Having been forced by the Children's Aid Society to take this treatment against his wishes. He is still getting treatment at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto (questionable treatment) I am currently researching the effects of these drugs and their methods of treatment on this child and will follow up shortly with my conclusions, through professional opinions and Doctors statements.
Devon will be starting school again in September, at a modified level and pace, but nonetheless he will be going to school... Way to Go Devon!!
Devon has good days and bad days and the in home and in hospital chemotherapy does take its toll on a small body. His father is always by his side and is praying to the Creator that his son will be okay. Native teachings are a way of life in his home and traditional treatments through prayer, meditation and smudging ceremonies ensures his spiritual and physical needs are being met by both his Creator and family.
I received an email from the family. Phone numbers I have omitted to protect the privacy of the family but come out and see this family on August 1, 2009.

I spent the day with Devon’s family for the garage sale on August 1, 2009 and they made almost $400 for the alternative therapy for Devon.
