Client Spotlight: Aline

Client Spotlight: Aline

Aline was diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a build up of fluid in the brain, when her mom was seven months pregnant. At one-month old, Aline had a Pudenz valve placed which got infected within two weeks. She was in the hospital for about seven months under antibiotics and she started having seizures by the third month that she was in the hospital due to the severity of the infection.

Since starting cannabinoid therapy, Aline has changed in a significant way. She's sleeping better, her appetite is just amazing, she's more aware of her surroundings and her squint eye seems to get better everyday. Not to mention that her seizures have dropped to 0 in over 6 months!!! The most exciting is that pre-school is now a reality; she has started the past week and she's enjoying it tons! We have also been able to go out/travel without being worried sick about her seizures. I would love to mention that my relatives are also doing better than ever, as it was hard for them to know that we were always alert and that we might have had to run to the hospital because Aline would seize.

The impact is just so much! I've mentioned previously we can now see for a better way of living for us and Aline. The whole family is just overwhelmed of how Aline has progressed and how her seizures have dropped. They have been through a lot with with us, going to the hospital, staying with Aline at the hospital (as an emergency room visit we knew for sure that she'd stay in for at least 3 days). We are all just very happy with Aline's progress. You can't imagine how happy her cousins are, as she can now attend various events, she even went to a baseball game last week!! We (my whole family and I) would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the opportunity you are giving Aline for a better chance at life. We cant express and thank you enough for how much you are doing for us.
