After our child came through chemotherapy in better shape than she started, I wanted to tell the world what medical marijuana can do for cancer patients, but i was invited to speak to a group of parents who were facing the same thing our child and her father and I had recently experienced, but our child was in a tentative remission, and I thought it was the medical marijuana keeping her strength up that brought about the remissionâ€¦ She was stronger than she had been in more than two years.
She weighed twenty pounds more than she had in numerous years, and she wasn’t in pain, however her hair was growing back and all she complained about was that she had a unibrow, which made us laugh, then my child had gone through cancer and was still with us.
I told the people that if their doctor didn’t command medical marijuana while their child was going through chemotherapy or radiation, they should ask about it, then there were plenty of doctors who thought medical marijuana was a enjoyable medication to help with the lack of appetite and nausea that goes with cancer. Our child was now a year into her remission and doing everything a healthy fifteen-year-old should be doing. She was getting ready to go to her first prom, which none of us thought would ever happen, by the time I was through talking, most of the parents were in tears, and some wanted to know who our doctor was. I couldn’t tell them to switch doctors, but I suddenly handed out cards for the pharmacist who was at our medical marijuana dispensary.
