Mom knows best: doctors performed 13 operations for a healthy boy, believing his mother
Since childhood, we are told that parents know better what to do and always act in the interests of the children. But this rule certainly does not apply to Keilin Bowen-Wright (Kaylene Bowen-Wright) from Texas, who initiated the hospitalization of her healthy son Christopher 323 times. A healthy child in the 8 years of his life unreasonably endured 13 complex operations.

According to testimony obtained as part of the investigation, Keylin Bowen-Wright began abusing medicine in 2009, when Christopher was only 11 days old. Bowen came up with a boy allergic to milk. Since then, the eight-year cycle of accessing doctors and completely unnecessary provision of medical services began.
According to the child’s father, Ryan Crawford, Bowen claimed that the boy was seriously ill.Ryan tried to draw the authorities' attention to the problem with his son, but three different judges believed the mother and refused to give him custody of the child, and even accused him of being serious about his son’s health.
At first, Bowen claimed that her son had a hereditary disease, then she began to invent all new diagnoses, until she finally declared that Christopher had cancer. Bowen launched a campaign to raise money for the treatment of the boy and even raised more than eight thousand dollars.
Although some doctors suspected that Bowen was provoking symptoms of illness in a child, Christopher went through a huge number of diagnostic procedures and 13 surgeries.
The investigation into the woman began after the Dallas hospital staff, where Christopher was treated, contacted the tutorship. Pathological lies Bowen reached the point that she put her son in line for donor organs. It was possible to find out that the boy does not have any of the diseases attributed.
Bowen's behavior is similar to Munchhausen syndrome. This is a disorder in which a person simulates or specifically causes the symptoms of the disease.Currently Cailin Bowen-Wright is in prison, and Christopher - in the social welfare agencies.
