A mother from Brighton who ran away with her seven-year-old son has won a ten-day delay before a judge decides whether to allow doctors to treat him.
Sally Roberts told High Court judge David Bodey that she was not “bonkers”.
She said that she had taken a principled stand against doctors forcing her son Neon to have radiotherapy after they removed a tumour from his brain.
A barrister for the doctors who want to treat the boy conceded that chemotherapy would be too risky.
Mr Justice Bodey deferred a decision until Tuesday 18 December.
Mrs Roberts ran off with her son rather than allow doctors to force him to have treatment.
She fears that the side effects from the proposed treatment risk doing him more harm than good.
And she told the High Court that one doctor had referred to the treatment as frying his brain.
She was found in East Grinstead with Neon who was removed her by social workers.
