Addy’s family carried her lifeless body around for months and were provided with palliative care counseling for families with a terminally ill child.
Addy’s family moved to Colorado from Maine on Mother’s Day 2014 to try safe and legal access to medical cannabis. Within five minutes of Addy’s first dose of CBD oil, she smiled. Her parents knew without a doubt this treatment option would make a positive difference in her life. Over the next year, Addy was able to lower the dosage of pharmaceuticals and stop one medication altogether.
Today she laughs and smiles, hugs her family, eats food by mouth instead of a G-tube, and she feeds herself! She communicates with an augmentative device and now attends preschool.
Addy is 5 and her older brother Colin is 9
