KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It appears progress is being made on getting Alexander Goodwin permission to stay in Kansas City for the duration of his cancer treatments.
The little boy is from England. He and his family came to the University of Kansas Hospital and Children's Mercy several months ago so he could received a specialized cancer treatment. Doctors had to remove his entire femur and all the muscles and tendons around it. His treatments are scheduled to last until June.
Last week, the Goodwin's announced Alex's immigration status only allows him to stay until April.
The secretary of state made some phone calls and spoke to the Department of Homeland Security. His office says that the issue is taken care of, and Alex and his family will be able to stay in the metro until the treatments end. However, the family says they have not received official confirmation of this.
