The Travolta's Son Has Died

TMZ is reporting that Jett Travolta, 16 year old son of John Travolta and Kelly Preston, has died. While staying at the family's holiday home in Nassau in the Bahamas, the boy had a seizure and hit his head in the bathroom. He was rushed to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead. After an autopsy the body will be buried in Ocala, Florida, close to where the family lives.
Jett had been diagnosed long ago with Kawasaki disease, which his parents blamed on toxic chemicals in household cleaners and fertilisers. As a result, the Travoltas put their son on a detoxification program based on teachings from the Church of Scientology, and it has been speculated that they did not treat his medical condition with the appropriate drugs.

Scientology blatantly denounced illnesses such as Kawasaki's and autism (which Jett has been suspected of having), and suggests that people treat the diseases with homeopathic remedies and not psychotropic drugs. The fact that this boy was swept under his parent's rug or denied proper treatment because of his parents ignorance on genetic issues is heartbreaking. It's tragic and terribly sad.
