Sally Roberts ran away with her seven-year-old son Neon, and took him into hiding in a desperate attempt to seize back control of the way he was being treated by cancer doctors.
Sally told ITV1’s Daybreak this morning why she doesn’t want him to have radiotherapy and why she is fighting for alternative treatment - against the views of medical experts.
In her first live television interview, Mrs Roberts said she didn’t want to "race into radiotherapy", which she called "medieval" and could reduce her son's "quality of life".
The mother added she disappeared with her son as an act of desperation, explaining, “I felt I was on a conveyor belt and I had no choice. They said treatment must start. I thought if I take him to the hospital they weren’t going to let us go home.”
The bright-eyed blonde boy and his mother became the subject of a nationwide search last week, but the police tracked them down and ordered Mrs Roberts to the High Court in London.
