Severely Epileptic Child Granted Cannabis Oil in Ireland, Setting Precedent: Almost Homeless in LA

14508593_10209348078052681_756360564_nLast week, 11 year old Billy Caldwell arrived back in Ireland after managing to secure legal, full spectrum cannabis oil in his home country. His family took him all the way to Los Angeles, California to pursue cannabis oil: it works like nothing else ever has, to treat his extremely severe “intractable, status epilepsy.”

Charlotte Caldwell, his mother, has been fighting hard for his life since he was “sent home from hospital to die” at the age of 8 months. She didn’t accept the diagnosis, and for 11 years she fought to keep him alive.

The pharmaceuticals never worked well for him. His condition is so severe, sometimes he is put into an induced coma to keep him alive.

His mother said:

“I was just doing my job. I think it was just a mammy looking after their child. That’s what a mammy has to do. That’s a mammy’s job to protect their child and that’s what I did. It’s him too though, he is a real wee fighter. He inspires me to keep going and continue to keep fighting for him. He won’t give up so therefore I never will.”

According to the Irish Sun:

“He recently suffered a devastating set back and was placed in an induced coma after he suffered an extreme seizure. The cost of his hospital bills almost led to he and his mum becoming homeless in in L.A.

However, their prayers were answered when they were contacted by Irish based Dr. James Linden , of Greenlight Medicine, a highly experienced pharmaceutical professional and scientist.

He among others have worked tirelessly this last number of months to procure CBD/THC that can replace the supplement that Billy has being using successfully in L.A.”
