After five years of battling the blood cancer, Noah Maxin died Thursday at Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital in Cleveland. In 2002, parents Greg and Theresa Maxin won the right to abandon Noah's chemotherapy, because they were concerned about the long-term effects. Stark County child welfare officials had accused the couple of neglect when they gave up the chemo for a doctor specializing in holistic medicine. But, in a case believed to be the first of its kind in Ohio, a family court judge ruled the Maxins were free to choose their son's care.
