Children suffering with seizure disorders are dealt a rough hand. They cannot develop mentally due to the overwhelming amount of seizures they have, their speech is halted, and sometimes, the parents are informed that their child is going to die. Of course parents aren't going to just stand by and let their child die because the doctors can't figure their shit out and that's exactly what Cherie did after she heard that her two year old daughter Abbey might not survive her diagnosed CDKL5, a disorder that causes violent seizing, mental, and physical disabilities.
When doctors told Cherie that Abbey wasn't going to live, the caring moth started researching everywhere. She eventually stumbled upon the Facebook pages dedicated to parents that appreciated the effects of healing cannabis oil. The oil, Cherie read, was a great alternative to legal, yet ineffective, medicines given out by doctors. Cherie read through the pages, deciding that this was indeed a treatment option that she wanted her daughter to pursue.
Upon making her choice to treat her daughter with the oil, Cherie smuggled a vial of the oil in to Abbey's hospital room and poured a designated amount in to the feeding tube that her daughter ate through, washed the oil down, and waited. Immediately the effects were apparent. The seizures began to decrease and the child's doctors were seeing improvements on the brain scans they were doing. The doctors were amazed.
Unfortunately, the supply of medical cannabis available for Abbey was limited as her supplier was recently raided after they had written to the ACT Chief Minister, Katy Gallagher, about the amazing recovery of this young girl. So basically, in return for saving a life, the person helping was punished. Gallagher was the one who tipped off the police, not even giving the curing plant the time of day.
Although suppliers aren't safe, mothers refuse to let their children suffer for long. Banding together, there are many who say that they will grow their own cannabis and make the oils themselves if necessary. When fighting for their child's life, they will try whatever they can to save them. In Abbey's case, the supply of cannabis oil that her mother has saved is running low and the prognosis doesn't look good. If the oil supply is not found, Abbey will most likely revert back to having seizure filled days and the disorder may eventually kill her. Children deserve a chance at every medicine, especially one that works as well as cannabis does.
