Christopher's mom, 34-year-old Kaylene Bowen, said he had a rare genetic disorder and cancer and needed a lung transplant.
A Dallas mother accused of subjecting her healthy son to over 300 needless doctors visits and 13 surgeries has been arrested for Injury to a Child. Both confirmed Christopher was not actually sick.
Mr Crawford, who was in an on-off relationship with Ms Bowen before she became pregnant, told the newspaper how he mounted years of court battles for parental custody, while paying $600 (£450) a month in child maintenance.
"She started explaining to the judge that the doctors stated my son would never walk", Crawford said.
'And then she stated that he had problems continuing to eat and that he's going to need a feeding tube.' . 'It didn't make sense because I never saw him throw up any milk'. One page guaranteed the kid had been determined to have Arteriovenous mutation at age 2, and had raised more than $8,000. She was pleasant, pretty.
"Obviously, she was living life for free and off my son", he said.
"It's terrible for my son, or any kid because obviously my son is not the only one that has had to go through this type of torture", said Crawford, who was banned by a 2012 court order from seeing his son because he refused to believe the mother's unfounded claims.
He's convinced she suffers a condition called Munchhausen by Proxy, or MSBP.

"It's frightful for my child, or any child in light of the fact that clearly my child isn't the special case that has needed to experience this kind of torment", Crawford revealed to The Star-Telegram.
"He could have died. only God saved him". But after the CPS found out that it had all been for nothing, they placed Christopher and his two siblings in foster care.
"It was always the same story: Christopher is dying", Crawford told The Star-Telegram."The father doesn't need to be around because he doesn't know how to take care of him".
Now, Crawford desperately wants custody of his son.
A hearing is set for next week.
Over the course of his eight-year life, they say Christopher's mother Kaylene Bowen is responsible for 13 invasive, possibly unnecessary, surgeries conducted on Christopher during over 300 stays in the hospital.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
