Mo speaks from her heart and own experience. Her five year old daughter, Dahlia was diagnosed with brain cancer at age two and went from a happy, dancing baby girl to a dying patient over night.
Mo discovered with shock she had no options, doctors told Mo if she didn’t give permission for surgery they would do it without permission. They made it very clear that if she didn’t follow the conventional treatment consisting of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, the state would take custody of Dahlia and she would undergo those treatments without her mom.
Mo’s life changed radically once Dahlia started on Chemotherapy, being a single mom she lived solely to save her daughter’s life.
The medical professionals were not being evil, their hands are tied by law. Marijuana is illegal and not considered medically beneficial, which is why it is schedule 1 and so little research is done in America.
Dahlia was on some really harsh and dangerous medicines with side effects like psychosis, homicide, suicide and death. This is all there is to offer children diagnosed with cancer. In contrast, cannabis or CBD oil for cancer has no side effects.
After a few months of Dahlia’s treatment Mo realized she was going to die unless she found some solution. She frantically started looking into thousands of supplements and alternative treatments. She found information on cannabis being very efficient in treating the symptoms of cancer and the side effects of conventional treatments. She discovered this information time and time again.
Desperate as she was, she let her medical professionals know she was getting cannabis shipped to her illegally in Tennessee. They all supported her decision and were on board.
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) agrees chemical components of cannabis known as cannabinoids activate receptors in the body and produce pharmacological effects, particularly in the central nervous system and the immune system. Cannabis has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years.
Cannabis oil for cancer.
Six months into conventional cancer treatment Mo started using cannabis oil for cancer. The very first night Dahlia took the oil she slept through the night for the first time in her life. After the first week on the oil she gained three pounds. Mo says that when a desperately worried mother witnesses such effects, all the science in the world, for or against, doesn’t matter.
The NCI states that the potential benefits of medicinal cannabis for cancer patients include appetite stimulation, pain relief, and improved sleep. With few relevant surveys of practice patterns, it appears that physicians caring for cancer patients in the United States recommend medicinal cannabis predominantly for symptom management.
Before Dahlia got ill Mo was against drugs and cannabis. She says she is ashamed to admit that she would probably not have voted for medical use of marijuana before she saw its effects for herself. No one ever explained to her that cannabis is a medicine.
Mo wants things to change, and she wants a cure for diseases and illnesses children suffer from. For now, she is passionately advocating cannabis oil as a treatment for the symptoms of cancer and the side-effects of its treatment. She believes that cannabis has played an important role in her daughter’s complete recovery from brain cancer.
