A judge ruled on December 18 that Neon Roberts could undergo more surgery despite his mother's opposition, which had led her to run away with her son earlier this month. High Court judge David Bodey ruled that Neon, who has already had surgery on a brain tumour, should have another operation after hearing from doctors that he would very likely die soon without treatment.
