An 11-year-old Amish girl fighting leukemia can finally return to her Ohio home.

Sarah Hershberger's court-ordered guardian officially gave up the right to force chemotherapy on her.

The family strongly resisted treatments, even fleeing from their home for four months to resist the court orders.

They claim it's not because of their faith but because the chemo made Sarah so sick.

They want to treat her at home with alternative medicines, which they say are working and are better for her.
