(CNN) — A Florida judge ruled Monday that the parents of a 4-year-old boy with leukemia lost their bid Monday to regain custody after their struggle with the state over giving him chemotherapy.

Noah McAdams was removed from his parents’ custody in April when they skipped a chemotherapy session and left the state in pursuit of alternative treatments.

The article goes on to state the following:

Noah’s parents, Taylor Bland and Joshua McAdams, and their fight for natural cancer treatment garnered national attention after a multi-state police search ensued when they skipped the chemotherapy appointment and took Noah for a consultation in Cincinnati, Ohio, with an alternative medicine practitioner.

Noah will be cared for by his maternal grandmother, and remain a dependent of the state, according to Brooke Elvington, an attorney for Bland and McAdams. Noah’s parents may visit their son and attend medical appointments, with supervision, Elvington said.
