BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (WFTV) – An herbalist is on trial after a diabetic boy died in California.
A Brevard County man said his wife turned to the man for an alternative cancer treatment.
“I was kind of left in the dark,” he said. “I’m just hoping that by this interview, somebody is helped.”
California prosecutors said the herbalist, Tim Morrow, who does not have a medical license, is to blame for the 13-year-old boy’s death.
A Brevard County widower said he understands why someone would trust the herbalist over a traditional doctor.
Prosecutors said he essentially brainwashed the boy’s mother by claiming he cured his own cancer.
The husband said he believes that the man’s claim that he did it without traditional medicine convinced his wife to do the same.
Don Waisanen said he is certain that if his late wife, Carol Ann Waisanen had known about the boy’s death in California, she would still be here.
