Ashya King: el final feliz que pudo haber tenido Alfie Evans

Ashya King, Charlie Gard y Alfie Evans. Tres casos distintos de niños con enfermedades que tienen un fuerte nexo común: las incoherencias del sistema sanitario y judicial británico. Los dos últimos no podrán dar testimonio de los avances de la medicina, sin embargo el primero -gracias a un hospital en República Checa- sí.

Desde el año 2014 hasta hoy, la sociedad europea es testigo de cómo la autoridad británica trata de imponerse a las decisiones de los padres que tienen hijos enfermos. El último ejemplo ha sido Alfie Evans, ingresado en un hospital de Liverpool por una enfermedad degenerativa. Ni la intervención del Papa Francisco, ni todas las ofertas del gobierno italiano pudieron frenar la decisión de los jueces de retirarle el soporte vital que lo mantenía con vida.

Ingresado en el Hospital General de Southampton

¿Quizás por la inseguridad de que se llevaran otro chasco y de que quedaran en ridículo delante de todo el mundo? Quizás. Esta última polémica hace remontarnos a cuatro años atrás, cuando un pequeño, hijo de un matrimonio perteneciente a los Testigos de Jehová, se encontraba ingresado en el Hospital General de Southampton librando una batalla contra el cáncer.

El principio de la historia comienza con la sugerencia de los padres, Brett y Naghemen King, de suministrar a su hijo un tratamiento que consistía en una terapia de protones. Ellos consideraban que sería menos dañino que la radioterapia convencional que ofrecía por aquel momento el Servicio Nacional de Salud de Reino Unido (NHS). Primeramente le habían eliminado con éxito y mediante cirugía el meduloblastoma.

Arrestados en España durante 24 horas

Tras las desavenencias entre los progenitores y el equipo médico del centro, decidieron que la mejor opción era sacar al menor de allí y buscar otra alternativa fuera del país, por lo que el 28 de agosto de 2014 se embarcaron en un ferry dirección Francia. El trayecto los llevó hasta Vélez -Málaga- donde por una Euroorden fueron arrestados durante 24 horas. Recibieron el apoyo de multitud de personas y tras una dura lucha judicial se les retiró la solicitud de extradición.

El asunto fue llevado hasta el Tribunal Supremo, que el 5 de septiembre dictaminó que Ashya podía recibir el tratamiento en Praga. A pesar de las negativas previsiones del hospital británico -los médicos auguraron que los efectos secundarios de la terapia de protones serían los mismos que los de una radioterapia convencional- los King tiraron para adelante.

Totalmente curado

En marzo de 2015, pasada ya la estancia en el Proton Therapy Center de Praga, un escáner cerebral verificó la buena nueva que todos estaban esperando: el pequeño estaba libre de cáncer. Tres años más tarde, el menor –de ocho años ya- ha vuelto a ser examinado y la luz blanca brilla de nuevo: está plenamente curado. Una noticia que llena de felicidad a los padres y que pone en jaque a aquellos que quieren tomar decisiones por encima de nadie.

El diario EL MUNDO publicaba el pasado 5 de mayo un breve reportaje en el que informaba que estos padres habían declarado no guardan rencor ni al hospital ni a los jueces británicos. Probablemente los Evans o los Gard, no puedan decir lo mismo.

Llega a España la terapia que salvó a Ashya King, el niño 'secuestrado' de la sanidad inglesa

 

En agosto de 2014, la policía de todo el mundo se movilizaba tras conocer un caso aparentemente muy inquietante. Los padres de un niño con un tumor cerebral habían sacado al pequeño, llamado Ashya King, del hospital de Southampton donde estaba ingresado y lo habían trasladado a una casa familiar en Málaga, donde fue localizado por las fuerzas de seguridad españolas. 

Se supo entonces que los padres de Ashya eran testigos de Jehová y se sospechó lo peor: que querían evitar para su hijo la única medicina que podía salvarle la vida. Sin embargo, esto resultó no ser así. Lo que Brett y Naghemeh King pretendían era que su hijo se tratara en el Centro de Terapia de Protones de Praga, uno de los pocos lugares entonces donde administraban protonterapia, una forma avanzada de radioterapia con muchos menos efectos secundarios que la convencional, lo que hace de ella una alternativa ideal para tumores pediátricos. 

Finalmente, tras un paso de 24 horas por la cárcel de Soto del Real, los padres pudieron trasladar a su hijo a la capital de la República Checa, donde recibió el innovador tratamiento que, cinco años después, llegará por fin también a España. El grupo Quironsalud está construyendo el que será el primer centro de protonterapia de España, que estará situado en Pozuelo de Alarcón (Madrid) y que empezará a tratar pacientes -tanto de la sanidad privada como de la pública, ya que la entidad gestiona diversos hospitales de titularidad autonómica- en 2019. 

Así funciona la protonterapia.

Sólo 20 centros en Europa

España se suma así a otros 57 centros ubicados en países como Francia, Alemania, Italia, Japón o EEUU, sólo una veintena de ellos situados en Europa. Desde el grupo hospitalario han explicado que las nuevas instalaciones han requerido de una inversión de 40 millones de euros. 

Desde que el tratamiento saltó a la palestra en los medios de comunicación, diversos estudios científicos lo han confirmado como una alternativa ideal para ciertos tumores. En 2016, The Lancet Oncology publicaba un estudio sobre su eficacia a largo plazo en el meduloblastoma. 

Entre los beneficios de la terapia con haz de protones destacan la mínima –incluso nula- radiación en los alrededores del tumor, una menor dosis total de radiación por tratamiento, ausencia de tumores secundarios a la radiación y mejora de la calidad de vida del paciente.

Aplicados en dosis específicas, los protones pueden actuar con precisión en el interior de los tejidos, consiguiendo una mayor actividad antitumoraly generando un menor daño en el tejido sano, lo que hace de este tipo de terapia especialmente indicada en pacientes pediátricos, aunque sólo en algunos tipos de cáncer.

En concreto, los tumores más indicados para este tipo de tratamiento son  el cordoma y el condrosarcoma -dos tipos de tumores óseos-, melanomas intraoculares no adecuados para la braquiterapia de placa y tumores en niños y adolescentes: craneoespinal, glioma de bajo grado, ependimoma, craneofaringioma, tumores de células germinales, tumores de hipófisis y tumores pineales, rabdomiosarcoma, sarcoma de Ewing, sarcomas de pelvis y linfoma mediastino, entre otros tipos de cáncer.

El sistema de terapia de protones que se podrá utilizar en España se llama Proteous One y reúne en una sola sala multifuncional toda la tecnología necesaria para la aplicación de la protonterapia en un centro oncológico.

Este equipamiento incorpora un sistema de escaneado del tumor para facilitar al médico la aplicación de la dosis más adecuada en cada área a tratar, y cuenta con los sistemas más avanzados para la toma de imágenes. Además, la máquina puede girar 360 grados sobre el paciente, aplicando el haz de protones desde cualquier ángulo, según informan desde el grupo hospitalario. "La apuesta de Quirónsalud por la protonterapia es fruto de nuestra preocupación por la calidad y la seguridad en la atención a nuestros pacientes y un ejemplo de nuestra continua innovación en los tratamientos y técnicas utilizados para mejorar la calidad de vida de las personas", concluye Leticia Moral, directora general de Asistencia y Calidad de Quirónsalud.

    • Definitely should try the Bond roll here when you get a chance: this is a mom and pop place that does a great job  
    • An interesting concept, bible discipline. I am struck by the prevalence of ignorance about spiritual discipline on "Reddit." While physical and mental disciplines receive attention, the profound impact of spiritual discipline on a person's physical and mental well-being is often overlooked. Is it possible to argue against the words of the Apostle Paul? When he penned those words in Hebrews 12, he was recognizing that there are moments when an individual must be "rebuked" in order to be corrected. Even Jesus himself established a precedent when he rebuked Peter and referred to him as Satan for failing to comprehend what Jesus had already revealed to the apostles. Did that imply that Jesus had an evil heart? Not at all, it was quite the opposite; Jesus had a loving heart. His need to correct Peter actually showcased his genuine love for him. If he hadn't cared, he would have let Peter persist in his mistaken ways, leading to a fate similar to Judas'. There is a clear emphasis on avoiding the apostate translation and its meaning, yet many seem to overlook the biblical foundation for the reasons NOT to follow the path of the fallen brethren or those with an apostate mentality. Those individuals have embraced the path of darkness, where the illuminating power of light cannot penetrate, to avoid receiving the righteous discipline based on God's Bible teachings. They are undoubtedly aware that this undeniable truth of life must be disregarded in order to uphold their baseless justifications for the unjust act of shunning. Can anyone truly "force" someone or stop them from rejecting a friend or family member? Such a notion would be absurd, considering the fact that we all have the power of free will. If a Witness decides to distance themselves from a family member or friend simply because they have come out as gay, who is anyone within the organization to question or challenge that personal sentiment? It is unfortunate that there are individuals, both within and outside the organization, who not only lack a proper understanding of the Bible but also dare to suggest that God's discipline is barbaric. We must remember that personal choices should be respected, and it is not for others to judge or condemn someone based on their sexual orientation but should be avoided under biblical grounds. No one should have the power to compel an individual to change their sexual orientation, nor should anyone be forced to accept someone for who they are. When it comes to a family's desire to shield their children from external influences, who has the right to challenge the parents' decision? And if a family's rejection of others is based on cultural factors rather than religious beliefs, who can impose religious judgment on them? Who should true followers of Christ follow? The words of God or those who believe they can change God's laws to fit their lives? How can we apply the inspired words of Paul from God to embrace the reality of God's discipline? On the contrary, how can nonconformists expect to persuade those with a "worldview" that their religious beliefs are unacceptable by ostracizing individuals, when God condemns homosexuality? This is precisely why the arguments put forth by ex-witnesses are lacking in their pursuit of justice. When they employ misguided tactics, justice remains elusive as their arguments are either weak or inconsistent with biblical standards. Therefore, it is crucial to also comprehend Paul's words in 1 Corinthians 9:27. The use of the word "shun" is being exaggerated and excessively condemned by those who reject biblical shunning as a form of punishment. Eph 5:3-14 NIV 3 But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people. 4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. 5 For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person — such a man is an idolater — has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.  6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient. 7 Therefore do not be partners with them.  8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the Lord. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible. The impact of the message becomes significantly stronger when we emphasize the importance of avoiding any association with unrighteousness and those who remain unrepentant. In fact, it becomes even more compelling when we witness how some individuals, who dismiss biblical shunning as a method of discipline, excessively criticize and condemn the use of the word "shun". Therefore, Jehovah's Witnesses do not shun people; instead, they choose to focus on the negative actions being committed, which is in accordance with biblical teachings. This should be construed as ex-Witness rhetoric. Now, let's consider why ex-Witnesses specifically target one particular religion. What justifications do they provide when other Christian denominations also adhere to the same principle grounded in the Bible? Chapter 1 - Preface Both must therefore test themselves: the one, if he is qualified to speak and leave behind him written records; the other, if he is in a right state to hear and read: as also some in the dispensation of the Eucharist, according to  custom enjoin that each one of the people individually should take his part. One's own conscience is best for choosing accurately or shunning. And its firm foundation is a right life, with suitable instruction. But the imitation of those who have already been proved, and who have led correct lives, is most excellent for the understanding and practice of the commandments. "So that whosoever shall eat the bread and drink the cup of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup."  It therefore follows, that every one of those who undertake to promote the good of their neighbours, ought to consider whether he has betaken himself to teaching rashly and out of rivalry to any; if his communication of the word is out of vainglory; if the the only reward he reaps is the salvation of those who hear, and if he speaks not in order to win favour: if so, he who speaks by writings escapes the reproach of mercenary motives. "For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know," says the apostle, "nor a cloak of covetousness. God is witness. Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome as the apostles of Christ. But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children."   (from Ante-Nicene Fathers, Volume 2) Divine promises 2. The manner of shunning, in the word escaping. There is a flying away required, and that quickly, as in the plague, or from a fire which hath almost burned us, or a flood that breaketh in upon us. We cannot soon enough escape from sin (Matt 3:7; Heb 6:18). No motion but flight becomes us in this case. Doctrine: That the great end and effect of the promises of the gospel is to make us partakers of the Divine nature. (from The Biblical Illustrator)  
    • Clearly, they are already demanding your exile. Yes! It's unfortunate that Pudgy spoiled a great discussion about science. I hope the discussion can continue without any more nonsensical interruptions. Just a suggestion since they are on your heels. Wow! You speak! It seems you have a lot to say! Now they are going to treat like, who do you think you are, mister big stuff! Are those aliens now going to imply that anyone who speaks out against the five or six key contributors to this site will be treated as though it is George just because those in opposition speak the language they hate to hear, the TRUTH? They are seeking individuals who will embrace their nonconformist values and appreciate what they can offer in shaping public opinion contrary to the established agenda of God and Christ. Their goal is to enhance their writing abilities and avoid squandering time on frivolous pursuits, mainly arguing about the truth they don't care for. They see it all as a mere game, even when leading people astray. They believe they have every right to and will face no biblical repercussions, or so they believe. They just want to have fun just like that Cyndi Lauper song. Be prepared to be belittled and ridiculed, all the while they claim to be angels. Haha! By the way, please refrain from using the same language as George. They appear to believe that when others use the same words, it means they are the same person, and they emphasize this as if no one else is allowed to use similar grammar. It seems they think only they have the right to use the same or similar writing styles. Quite amusing, isn't it? See, what I just placed in bold, now I'm George, lol! Now, let's leave this nice science thread for people that want to know more about science. I believe George left it at "Zero Distance."  
    • Nice little thread you’ve got going here, SciTech. It would be a shame if something were to happen to it.
    • It's truly disheartening when someone who is supposed to be a friend of the exclusive group resorts to using profanity in their comments, just like other members claiming to be witnesses. It's quite a ludicrous situation for the public to witness.  Yet, the "defense" of such a person, continues.
