Right now, it is estimated that over 100,000 children in the US alone suffer from intractable epilepsy resulting in up to hundreds of seizures per day and translating to certain reduced life span and virtually no quality of present life. These children can be treated with a derivative of cannabis which is rich in cannabidiol (CBD), the medicinal component and which is very low in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) the psychotropic component that causes the high effect.
Unfortunately, many of these children’s families live in states where medical marijuana is illegal and they do not have the means to relocate to a state which has legal medical marijuana. The ABC Family Fund is raising money to help one family relocate to a medical marijuana legal state, pay for the child’s treatment and subsidize the family’s relocation expenses for a six month period. This will give the family the opportunity to acclimate and start their new life with their child receiving the needed medical treatment, having reduced seizures and begin to live a functional life.
The ABC Family Fund was created by business owners in the cannabis industry that have seen the positive effects medical marijuana has for treatment of intractable epilepsy in children. Please help us help one child and their family to begin the gift of living life.
