LINCOLN, Neb. — Authorities are urgently searching for a 4-year-old Nebraska boy and his mother, who has been charged with child abuse for allegedly ending her son’s treatment for cancer and fleeing the state.
A social worker reported that Prince Rehan missed several appointments at an Omaha hospital for treatment of Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare but treatable form of cancer that forms in the soft tissue, according to Lincoln police investigator Luis Herrera.
The social worker said the boy would likely die within six months to a year without treatment, and that the cancer could become more resistant by missing appointments even after treatment resumes, the Lincoln Journal Star reported.
The boy was supposed to have weekly appointments in Omaha and four to five chemotherapy treatments in Lincoln, Herrera said.
Police on Oct. 9 spoke with the boy’s father, who said the boy’s mother, Abak Rehan, took their son to Arizona to get a second opinion because the treatments were making him sick. When Rehan called Herrera on Oct. 18, he asked if she was getting medical treatment for their son but she refused to discuss it, according to an arrest warrant issued Thursday.
“She was asked again and she would not answer, then later indicated she would not be returning to Nebraska,” Herrera said.
Rehan, 32, told the boy’s father that she didn’t like the care the boy was receiving and didn’t want to continue with treatment, Herrera said. He said it doesn’t appear that Prince is receiving any medical care, as the boy’s medical reports haven’t been requested by any medical facility or provider and there hasn’t been any activity detected on his Medicaid account.
In a court affidavit, Dr. Melissa Acquazzino, of Nebraska Pediatric Practice, said the boy is in imminent danger. She put his chances of being cured at 60% with treatment and 0% without it. Acquazzino said she believed it a “matter of immediate and urgent necessity” that the child be placed in the custody of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services.

BURY ST. EDMUNDS, England — A few days before Halloween, residents of this historic British market town fanned out into the local pumpkin patch to scoop up centerpieces for the spooky festival. But this year the mood was gloomy, if not desperate.
That’s because Oct. 31 is the date of the U.K.’s scheduled departure from the European Union, and uncertainty remains. Britain is scheduled to leave the 28-nation bloc Thursday, but Prime Minister Boris Johnson has struggled to get lawmakers to pass his EU divorce deal, and another delay is likely.
“It’s going on far too long, everybody just wants a final decision,” said market trader Tony Wilson, adding that people in Bury St. Edmunds feel cheated regardless of whether they voted for leave or remain. “Whatever side of the fence you sit on now, everybody’s in the same boat now. They’ve just had enough. They just want a final thing.”
After three and half years of arguments since Britain voted to leave the EU, people like Wilson are tired. Residents of this town in eastern England, where 54% voted to leave, appear to have one common goal: to get Brexit completed.
“We’re all kind of feeling the pinch in our pocket but nothing has happened politically. I think it is a complete mess,” said Darren Old from Great Barton, a nearby village. While he voted to remain in the EU, he believes most market traders just want to get Brexit done.
But people also worry about the consequences of leaving without a deal, an outcome economists warn could have devastating consequences for the country because of the sudden restrictions on trade and reduced investment.
Jeanette Brown, who’s been living in Bury St. Edmunds for 10 years and co-runs a small software business, wants a deal rather than an exit without one.
“This ‘Get Brexit done’ seems as though people want to do it at any cost,” the 45-year-old warned.
Like many leave voters, pumpkin farmer Andrew Long just wants the country to stand on its own two feet.
“I’m a farmer, and there’s a lot of European politics involved in farming, and we would like definitely to have certainty, and that’s why I am really upset that we are not going to be leaving on the 31st,” Long said.
He’s hoping for an early election to break the deadlock in Parliament and get a deal agreed.
“Let’s go for the election as soon as possible. Let’s sort this out before Christmas,” Long said. “We can’t go on for three months, four months, six months or 12 months, because it’s devastating for everybody and business, and family lives. People want to know what they are going to do.”
