The 3-year old Landon Riddle got diagnosed with Leukemia and his doctors said that he only had 8-10% chance of living from more than one or two days.
“His whole chest was full of leukemia tumors, which is why he couldn’t breathe. They started him on chemo, but told us that he probably wasn’t going to make it,” said his mother Sierra Riddle.
After two months of chemo, Landon’s condition got worst and he refused to eat. His mother explains that he vomited more than 50 times a day but the doctors saw no other solution than chemotherapy.
One day, Landon’s grandmother suggested they to try the cannabis oil treatment.
“We discussed all of our concerns with his medical team in Utah and watched Landon continue to suffer and wither away as they piled on the drug after drug. Then my mother came across cannabis oil online,” explained Riddle.
The family moved from Utah to Colorado, where the cannabis oil is legal and they began with the treatment.
A few days after they started the treatment, Landon’s condition was improving, he stopped vomiting and he started eating again.
“Our hearts were filled with joy that cannabis brought back the smile to Landon’s face. Landon started getting better and better! It was as if a miracle had happened! He was smiling again and started to eat again!” -Sierra wrote on her blog during his treatment.
“It is atrocious that anyone on the planet would be charged for choosing cannabis over pharmaceuticals. My heart goes out to Adam Koessler and Rumor Rose, along with uncountable other families that are affected by cannabis prohibition. Get ready for the fight of your life. Having a sick child is a battle in itself, but making this choice is a whole new world. You’re going to need a thick skin, intuition, and a solid team. Don’t waste time making sure every other pharmaceutical does more harm than good. If it feels wrong in your gut, it’s probably wrong,” explained Sarah.
Landon’s cancer is now in remission.
