Jill Atwood ReportingThe 12-year old boy at the center of a debate over parental rights, is expected to undergo new testing this week, but the big question is will a new doctor provide the same diagnosis of cancer?

In the meantime, it seems Parker Jensen's parents will be in Salt Lake City tomorrow to meet with legislators.

Daren Jensen says they are very interested in speaking with legislators about the subject of parents' rights, as well as the media. Daren Jensen feels the coverage has been one-sided at times and full of half-truths. He told KSL, Parker's new doctor is already presuming chemotherapy will be necessary, which disappoints them, but they did sign an agreement.

Daren Jensen told KSL today that even if it is determined that Parker has Ewing Sarcoma, they still would like to seek alternative treatment. They would like to take Parker to Germany, but he says unfortunately those actions are blocked by the state because if you'll remember Parker's parents had to surrender his passport. Jensen says he has evidence that other methods of treatment work.

Daren Jensen and his wife are expected to appear on CNN tomorrow night. You may also hear him on the Doug Wright on KSL radio show tomorrow morning.
