HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut youngster who used to be forced by way of the courts to bear chemotherapy for her cancer says a new mass has been present in her lungs.

Eighteen-yr-previous Cassandra Callender of Windsor Locks disclosed the news Saturday on her Fb web page. She tells The Related Press that she is “shifting ahead with alternative remedies.”

She had been in remission after undergoing 5 months of pressured chemotherapy for Hodgkin lymphoma when she used to be 17. She had argued she didn’t need to poison her body with chemotherapy.

Her case went to the state Supreme Court, which dominated in January 2015 that Connecticut’s Division of kids and Households wasn’t violating her rights.

She was launched from the hospital last April.

She is now legally able to make her personal treatment choices.
