Mother's 'brain fry' fears for cancer son

A couple are in court fighting over whether to give their son radiotherapy to treat his cancer.

Neon Roberts' mother Sally wanted him to be given natural remedies as he recovers from surgery on a brain tumour.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, she claims a doctor said the treatment could "fry his brain":

I fear they are going to fry my son's brain when there are other ways we could proceed.

I feel it is very unnecessary and I'm sure any mother who had researched like I have would feel the same.

This is my only son. He's my world.

I need to be able to tell him I did everything I could for him.

– Sally Roberts
