We adored our stepmother for 10 years. When our father was diagnosed with cancer on April 9, 2010 she changed.
- She cancelled his 4th chemo treatment, after his Dr. told him he was going to live on 6/11/10
- She moved him to a state where she believed 100% of his assets went to her
- She kept him out of treatment for 7 1/2 weeks
- She withheld his morphine
- She banned his children from coming to his house
- She removed his children from the doctor's call list
He died on 10/30/10
Since she was his legal guardian our only recourse was to take this to the courts to try to gain an involuntary guardianship. Not knowing how long our father had to live we decided to work around her to try to keep him as comfortable as possible until his death.
We are currently seeking legal prosecution.
Prairie Grove Health & Rehabilitation has been kind enough to allow us to meet in their parking lot.

The Cinderella Group is trying to create awareness of the current laws on record when your parent is ailing, but has remarried.
If you do not agree with the medical care your step-parent is providing the only recourse you have in the state of Arkansas is to apply to the courts for an involuntary guardianship. If your parent is dying of a major illness you may not have the time to wait for the court system to resolve the issue.
We would like to see a system instituted that would provide a social worker that could assess the situation as soon as there is a complaint. Our idea is something similar to what happens when there is a complaint of child abuse.
