Deadly chemo forced upon a 6-year old in Perth by brainwashed doctors

Parents of a six-year-old Perth boy with brain cancer are being subjected to a lot of pain and hassles as their son is being forced into chemotherapy despite their disapproval.

After doctors told them that their son had a fairly slim chance of survival, Oshin Kiszko’s parents, Angela Kiszko and Colin Strachan, decided that he may be spared chemotherapy so that his last years would be joyful than painful. They took the decision after coming to know that medulloblastoma had fairly low levels of survival rates and that after-effects of chemotherapy could be debilitating.

However, doctors at Princess Margaret Hospital had other plans and have subjected the boy to painful chemotherapy much to his dissent. His mother said that the little boy, who already has to live with reduced life functionalities, had to undergo a traumatising seven-hour surgery and subsequent weeks in hospital that disabled his left side. He was then forced into chemotherapy a day after his sixth birthday. After four months, the boy still cannot walk unassisted.

His mother, said, “Seeing him in ICU was daunting and horrible. He had tubes coming out all over the place, he was vomiting up blood, had blood coming out of his nose. He was screaming and not knowing what was going on. Children with medulloblastoma go through years of what I see as torture, medical treatments, relapses, just to get this – maybe – five years.”

Doctors had diagnosed Oshin with medulloblastoma in December. Members of his family have had the same disease and under normal treatments, patients suffer from life-long disabilities. Doctors then said that he had 20-30 per cent chances of survival. When doctors suggested chemotherapy, the parents refused it, as they came to know that it was not going to do much to help their child recover. However, the doctors prevailed and he was returned to hospital for chemotherapy. The young patient did not like it a bit and repeatedly asked to go home. Doctors had to pin him down with sheets to administer drugs.

Oshin’s mother said that all she needed was palliative care for the boy so that he would die in peace. She said she was pressured to accept the recommendations of doctors to continue treatment on the boy. She even made it clear to doctors that priority was to be given to quality of life in the case of the little boy, but her pleas were not heeded. Meanwhile the parents are also having to deal with their daughters who are confused and saddened by the situation.

The chemotherapy is expected to last six months and forced radiation therapy may follow. Princess Margaret Hospital said it was unable to comment on the situation.

A critic of the medical industry said, “it is absolutely outrageous that in a so-called free and democratic society parents can be forced to have their child given a deadly unproven drug in chemo that has 97% failure rate and is 100% guaranteed to cause serious long-term damage to the child and increase greatly increase his chances of dying”.

“50 years from now society will look back and see how ridiculous it was to inject chemo into people. It is a deadly drug sold for $100 billion a year in profits that has never been proven to save a single life. On the other hand it has proven to be the biggest cause of secondary cancer.

“What if the doctors were taken against their will, strapped to a bed and injected with deadly chemo? It would most likely kill them or damage their bodies forever and cause them to get secondary cancers. It would be effectively murder.

“Yet they think this is ok to do this to a 6-year old boy against his parents wishes because they have been brainwashed by the cancer industry that sells deadly chemo drugs for profit. Nevertheless, many doctors would never take chemo themselves or agree to be injected with it, as deep down they know it makes no sense to inject deadly poisons into a human to make them better”, he said.

According to a cancer survivor study in America coordinated by St Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, 30 years after diagnosis, about one-third of patients administered treatment had died while eight per cent had to deal with a secondary malignant tumour. About 18 per cent had to deal with a recurrence of their original cancer. Many of those that are alive have to deal with hearing loss, seizures and balance problems. Brain damage is severe and it is believed that the patients would not be able to lead independent lives even if they survive.
