Rifqa Bary Refuses Chemotherapy Will Turn 18 Next Tuesday

Rifqa Bary, the muslim teen convert to Christianity, who ran away from home in fear of her life from her parents whom Rifqa says threatened to kill her because of her conversion to Christianity, will turn 18 years old next Tuesday and then be legally considered an adult.

In the meantime, Rifqa, who is living in foster care, had been diagnosed with uterine cancer and has had surgery. Rifqa is refusing to have routine post surgery chemotherapy, because she believes God has completely healed her of cancer after attending a healing service in Youngstown without her parents' consent, according to the document.

Rifqa’s attorneys are appealing the court, asking the court to make "special findings" so that she can obtain an immigration status that will allow her to stay in the country and obtain medical care. Rifqa, a native of Sri Lanka, does not have legal status in the United States, her attorneys have said in court.

Continue to support Rifqa in prayer that the court finds favor with Rifaq and that God grants her favor in her immigration status to remain in America to receive the medical treatment needed to monitor her post-surgical cancer status.

Rifqa ran away from home in July 2009, saying her muslim father would kill her for converting to Christianity. She lived with evangelical pastors in Florida before returning to Ohio to live in a foster home.
The case is to conclude next Tuesday, when Rifqa will turn 18, making her an adult. Read more here.
