After the tumor was identified in 2000, surgery was performed on it in 2003. Even though the surgery went well, the tumor had grown back when the MRI was performed two months later.
After this upsetting news, Kelly’s brain surgeon recommended 4-6 months of chemotherapy, and an operation if the chemo failed to work. Kelly and her husband read a paper on chemotherapy and discovered that while people appeared to get better after chemo, there would be left over tumor cells that could mutate and become aggressive over time.
So Kelly and her husband began researching alternative methods and discovered Charlotte’s Web cannabis oil, an alternative method to chemotherapy that could be used as a cancer treatment.
How the Alternative Method Worked
Kelly decided to commit to a 90-day cannabis treatment protocol. So her family established residency in San Francisco, in order to get a medical marijuana card for her cancer treatment. According to Kelly, “the cannabis oil helped me with my fibromyalgia pain, joint pain, and chronic headaches. I literally have no pain now.”
During the 90-day program she also began juicing all organic non-GMO veggies every day. Her diet consisted of organic gluten free meals and a machine that created pure alkaline drinking water. She was also sure to get a good dose of fresh air on her daily walks. “I had an arsenal of cancer fighting supplements, foods, and daily practices to work on my physical, spiritual, and emotional health.”
After 90 days of the treatment Kelly’s MRI revealed that there was no change in the main tumor’s regrowth. However, there was a change; a smaller tumor that was found 10 years ago that was inoperable in her cingular gyrus was completely gone. The disappearance of this tumor encouraged Kelly to continue with the cannabis protocol.
8 months after the beginning of the cannabis treatment, her MRI revealed that the remaining tumor had turned into scar tissue. While it is important that Kelly continues to get MRIs to monitor any potential tumors, she is now in better health and has a greater immune system thanks to the cannabis. According to Kelly, “I’m excited for the future of Medical Marijuana and I feel a strong responsibility to spread this information. I hear so many misconceptions about this amazing medicinal plant that I feel a need to tell my story to anyone who is interested and my prayer is that it will be received with an open mind and a compassionate heart.”
