TAMPA, Fla. – Court-ordered chemotherapy treatment will resume Thursday for a 3-year-old boy who is battling cancer, WTSP-TV reported.

A Hillsborough County judge on Wednesday ordered the parents of Noah McAdams to provide him with chemo treatment, which is expected to last 28 days.

According to Florida law, the state can mandate medical treatment for a child in a life-or-death situation.

Doctors diagnosed McAdams with leukemia last month. He has been through one round of chemotherapy at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital.
