Multi checkboxes

I need to have 3 checkboxes in a grid - one that says Mine one that says Not mine and one that says Cancer Related.   I;ve tried to put it together with


                      headerTemplate="<span>Not Mine</span>"

But this  does not allow me to select anything other than the first checkbox.  Your help is appreciated. Thanks.

Hi William, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 
By default checkbox type columns are used for selecting the row. So while clicking on the row it will check the first checkbox in the row which is the default behavior of Grid. So we suggest you to use the “column.displayAsCheckBox” property to show the checkbox for the corresponding fields.  
And you can change the state inside the click event of Grid element. Also you can update the changes in the Grid dataSource also. For that you need to enable editing.  Please refer to the below code example, documentation link and sample link for more information. 
  <div id="app"> 
    <ejs-grid id="Grid" ref="grid" :dataSource="data" :editSettings="editSettings" :allowPaging="true" 
        <e-column field="OrderID" isPrimaryKey="true" headerText="Order ID" width="90"></e-column> 
        <e-column field="CustomerID" headerText="Customer ID" format="C2" width="90"></e-column> 
        <e-column field="Mine" headerText="Check1" width="70" displayAsCheckBox="true" textAlign="Center"> 
        <e-column field="NotMine" headerText="Check2" width="70" displayAsCheckBox="true" textAlign="Center"> 
        <e-column field="CancerRelated" headerText="Check3" width="70" displayAsCheckBox="true" 
export default { 
  data() { 
    return { 
      data: data, 
      editSettings: { 
        allowEditing: true 
  provide: { 
    grid: [PageEdit] 
  methods: { 
    created(e) { 
      // binding click event 
    click(e) { 
      // for normal ediitng 
      if ( 
        e.target.classList.contains("e-rowcell") && 
      ) { 
        if (this.$refs.grid.ej2Instances.isEdit) 
        var index = parseInt(e.target.getAttribute("Index"), 10); // row index 
        var rowData = this.$refs.grid.ej2Instances.currentViewData[index]; // row data 
        var column = this.$refs.grid.ej2Instances.columns[ 
          parseInt(e.target.getAttribute("aria-colindex"), 10) 
        ].field; // field name 
        var checkValue = !rowData[column]; 
        // for toggling the other columns 
        rowData.Mine = false; 
        rowData.NotMine = false; 
        rowData.CancerRelated = false; 
        rowData[column] = checkValue; 
        // Update the row with the modified data 
        this.$refs.grid.ej2Instances.updateRow(index, rowData); 
      .e-checkbox-wrapper.e-checkbox-disabled .e-frame.e-check, 
      .e-css.e-checkbox-wrapper.e-checkbox-disabled .e-frame.e-check { 
        background-color: #e3165b; 
        border-color: transparent; 
        color: #fff;

Sorry I need to reopen this.

The solution works 95% of the time but if the row is double clicked it goes into edit mode and shows an unformulated version of the row.  In my case it actually lock up my screen because of other code. Is there a way to prevent this?

You can see it on the demo you included below.

I think I got it to work-

I changed the 

  editSettings: {
        allowAdding: true
