Legal Custody Battle in London: A Daughter's Dying Wish

Recently a legal custody battle arose between two divorced parents from London involving their fourteen-year-old daughter's dying wishes. The girl, who had cancer and only a short time to live, had begun making arrangements to be cryogenically frozen with the hopes that in years to come, she would be able to be woken up and cured. However, the procedure required the consent of both of the girl's parents. This meant consent from her father, who she had not had contact with in eight years, was also required. As her father opposed the procedure, her mother brought a suit on the girl's behalf in London's equivalent of a family court. The mother was ultimately successful in getting full rights to decide what would happen to her daughter's remains upon her death. The girl, who has since passed away, has been transported to the United States and is being stored in Detroit.
