Tiegen’s Neuroblastoma, Seizures, and Autism Put Down by Cannabis
Born 10-weeks premature, Tiegen has been a little fighter since her first breath!
I’d like to share a story of TRIUMPH. It isn’t my story. It is my 12-year old daughter’s story. I’m just blessed to participate in it!
So, Teigan was born ten weeks early. She had a stroke, grade 4 bleeding on the brain, brain seizures, a collapsed lung, and more. As a result she has cerebral palsy, epilepsy, developmental delay, and she is cognitively impaired. She has autism and ADHD. Her back was broken in three places from osteopenia. When she was a mere four months old we received the news that Teigan had stage 4 neuroblastoma (cancer of the nervous system). It returned three times.
Fast forward 12 years to now.
I finally was able to obtain Teigan’s MEDICAL CANNABIS CARD!!!!
We use different oils, tinctures, lotions, and edibles.
Now when my daughter reaches her hand out to grab something, it no longer tremors. Her seizure activity has nearly disappeared. When she goes into a meltdown (where she would usually become violent), I am able to give her an edible to calm her down and stop the meltdown. Her speech has improved and her focus is better.
Teigan takes 19 pills a day that I crush up and put through her G-tube. She also has medications on hand that are given p.r.n. (as needed). This is way too much medication for anyone, let alone a 75 lb 12 year old girl. My goal is to work closely with Teigan’s doctor and get her off as many meds as possible.
MEDICAL CANNABIS is literally going to save my daughter’s life. Soon she won’t need to take 10 pills a day for seizures. Soon she won’t need pharmaceutical drugs to make her sleep. Soon the lotion may take the place of her muscle relaxers. Medical cannabis has already taken place of her Klonopin.
People, medical cannabis has improved my daughter’s quality of life and our entire family as a whole. I am so thankful for this. It is a miracle for my family.
I know this post was long. Thank you for taking the time to read it till the end. Feel free to share. People need to know how important medical cannabis is and other parents like me need to know that there is HOPE!!!!
