Heartbreakingly, many of us have heard of the tragic plight of the little boy from Texas, Rephael Elisha Meir ben Devora Cohen.
Aside from the fact that many of us are praying for him, a petition sent out on behalf of his family asks for 100,000 signatures so the government can make an exception and dispense non-FDA approved experimental drugs in a last ditch effort to save this precious child’s life. Conventional medical treatment has failed.
At first many signed the petition, not knowing exactly what they were signing. Then, USA Today came out with an exposé on the controversial antineoplaston drug and, more significantly, an expose of the doctor administering the drug, Stanislaw Burzynski. Based on the expose, he indeed does sound like an incompetent, creepily preying on the vulnerability of those desperately facing life and death circumstances.
