Oklahoma Couple Caught in Crowdfunding Dispute as Son, 2, Battles Cancer

Like many parents with children who have medical problems, an Oklahoma couple were lucky enough to have their friends to set up a crowdfunding page to help with medical costs.

Their 2-year-old son, Liam, has been battling cancer since he just was 9 months old, explains Zach Bradshaw to KFOR.

Back in August, the couple faced an awful dilemma. Doctors told them they could do a more invasive form of chemo, but it would merely prolong Liam’s life, leaving him in constant pain.

The other option was to stop treatment, leaving him to live normally but with perhaps only six months to live. They chose this option.

After they had made the decision, friends set up a crowdfunding page to help out.

But now that help has turned sour. The couple explains in the KFOR news clip how they have not received all the money raised, and how the crowdfunding site has refused to allow them access.
