Ashya King case

Ashya King’s case concerns a boy named Ashya King, who suffered a brain tumor. His parents, Brett and Naghemeh King, removed their son from Southampton General Hospital (England) in August 2014 due to a disagreement with doctors regarding his treatment. [one] King had a medulloblastoma, which was successfully removed by surgery on July 24, 2014. He received further neurosurgery on August 22.  King’s parents wanted their son to be treated with proton therapy, which they considered less harmful than conventional radiation therapy.  At that time, the National Health Service (NHS) did not provide proton therapy in the UK, however, it has funded treatment abroad since April 2008, where evidence has shown that there are benefits. In this case, the doctors did not support moving the boy so that he could receive proton therapy, and in response, on August 28, 2014, the parents removed their son from the hospital without notifying the medical team and boarded a ferry. to France. On August 28, 2014, an international hunt for King and his parents began. On August 30, King and his parents were found in Vélez Málaga, Spain. King’s parents were arrested and their son was sent to a local hospital for urgent treatment. They were held in prison for more than 24 hours and released when the request to extradite them to the United Kingdom was withdrawn.

Problems related to the child’s treatment were brought to the High Court for resolution, and on September 5, 2014, the court ruled that King could receive proton therapy in Prague. Doctors at Southampton General Hospital said the treatment would have the same side effects as conventional radiation therapy.  On September 9, King arrived at the Proton Therapy Center in Prague, where he underwent proton beam therapy. In March 2015, Brett King said a brain scanner showed no evidence that Ashya had a brain tumor. A 2015 report reviewing the case stated that King’s parents’ decision to deny chemotherapy to their children had reduced their chances of survival by 30 percent.  The reviews also asked healthcare providers to do a better job of communicating with parents.  In 2016, following the publication of a prospective phase II trial, the NHS decided that it will pay children with medulloblastoma to travel abroad for proton therapy. In 2018, MRI scans from Southampton showed Ashya did not have cancer.


The King family appeared on Good Morning Britain today to discuss how traveling abroad for treatment has “greatly extended their lives.” The eight-year-old boy told hosts Kate Garraway and Charlotte Hawkins that he wanted to be a chef when he grew up. Her parents Brett and Naghemeh King revealed that she was passionate about running and supporting her favorite Spain soccer team. Ms King told Good Morning Britain, “After three and a half years, your tumor has not come back because if it had come back, it would have come back.”
