BBC News - Neon Roberts 'should have radiotherapy' for tumour A seven-year-old boy at the centre of a legal dispute over cancer treatment should be given radiotherapy as soon as possible, a High Court judge has heard. Neon Roberts underwent surgery on a brain tumour on Wednesday against his mother's wishes. Sally Roberts, 37, wanted a delay until more doctors had been consulted, and does not want him to have radiotherapy because she has future health concerns. Doctors said Neon's condition would worsen without further treatment.................. The dad wants his son to be treated but Mum is against it despite professional advice to proceed. Would not his immediate health would be most parent's first concern? And surely if you've called your kid Neon then it's only right that he should glow in the dark?
