The mother of Neon Roberts has told Daybreak she will continue to fight the courts over her son's treatment.
Sally Roberts said: "I've been seeking other options and I should be able to fight some form of a battle."
Neon Roberts, who underwent radiotherapy, against his mother's wishes will undergo chemotherapy in early April to treat his brain tumour.

Sally Roberts has blamed legislation for stopping her son Neon from receiving alternative therapy.
Speaking exclusively to Daybreak, Ms Roberts said that the 1939 Cancer Act means doctors are prevented from using anything but radiotherapy to treat him.

She said her fears stem from the radiotherapy "damaging the DNA, altering it. And him never recovering from that."
Ms Roberts said that the legislation prevents research in to other treatments which might help Neon.
