Mom who fled with teen to avoid cancer surgery can see her

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon mother who took her teenage daughter out of the state for alternative treatment rather than go forward with surgery to treat a rare form of liver cancer can see her child before and after next week’s operation. A Clackamas County judge ruled Monday that Christine Dixon can visit with Kylee Dixon before the operation and be with her afterwards despite a previous no-contact order from the court. The Dixons traveled to Las Vegas in June after prosecutors say Christine Dixon refused to turn Kylee over to state welfare officials for treatment.
