Daniel Hauser is at the center of a heated controversy that pits his parents against the state of Minnesota in a question of life, death and freedom. Hauser, a 13-year-old boy from Sleepy Eye, Minn., was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a form of cancer, this past January.

His parents, Anthony and Colleen Hauser, decided to stop chemotherapy and radiation after one session, explaining that these treatments go against their religious beliefs.
