Story

Alexa is 8 and suffers refractor epilepsy which means that she doesn't respond to medication. Alexa suffered over 900 grand mal seizures last year requiring oxygen and spent 7 months of the year in a hospital bed. With every seizure Alexa risks further damage and potentially life threatening ‘status’ which means seizure does not stop. Alexa is at a high risk of sudden death in epilepsy because rescue meds simply don't work. Only cannabis oil prescribed privately from Neurologist has helped Alexa and has kept her safe and away from hospital. On November 1 the UK government finally changed the law to allow children to be prescribed cannabis-based meds but it isn't happening in UK yet and its so unfair. Each 10 ml bottle of medicine costs £170 and this is expensive for a mum like me who is a full time carer. We cannot access this medicine on the NHS and this means that we are wholly reliant on the private health system and the generosity of the public to help us.

This is Alexa's last hope and chance at a quality life. Any contribution you make be it big or small can help change my little girls life forevever!

Alexa has been using the oils now with success for a few months and she is now starting to heal and get stronger and be more aware. We really want to be able to continue with the oils as its been the best thing compared to any epilepsy meds which had awful side effects.

Alexa deserves a chance to achieve more from life and be the best she possibly can be. Cannabis oil can help Alexa achieve her goals and dreams.
Please help if you can. It can make all the difference! Big hug from Alexa. X

Mum to my little girl Alexa who has rett syndrome and severe refractory epilepsy. Alexa is slowly healing on medicinal cannabis oil after 7 months in hospital bed a year ago and the oil has given her her life back. Without it she will seriously deteriorate again.
