    These parents had too many things working against them. Importantly, the grandparent wanted custody and believed in the chemo treatments, which resulted in 98% of children without his type of leukemia going into remission, according to St. Jude Children Hosp. The earlier domestic violence case that resulted in injury to the child and the mental health case against one of the parents also didn't help their case. Unfortunately, the scales tipped the wrong way for them. We can only hope the child comes out OK.
