Mother denied custody because of cancer diagnosis

A North Carolina divorce and child custody case has gained significant attention from the media and internet users after a judge denied custody of two children to their mother because she had cancer.

Over 100,000 people have signed a petition online titled “Do not allow NC Judge to take Alaina Giordano’s children because she has cancer.” ¬†There has also been a debate between lawyers on the American Bar Association’s website.

Currently, Giordano’s two children (11 and 6-years old) live with her in Durham. ¬†However, according to the judge’s ruling, the kids must move to Chicago to live with their father.
