Story

Kayleigh is a 21 year old young lady who requires access to a treatment, medical cannabis that is legal here in the UK but currently not funded for by the NHS. You may have heard Kayleigh‘s story in the news over the last few months. I am still tirelessly fighting for her medication to be prescribed on the NHS but it is still a never ending continuous tough battle, with no current end in sight.

Recently we attended a meeting with a specialist private neurologist to seek a second opinion. A meeting was then held with a number of specislist clinicians who agreed that full extract cannabis oil was the best option for Kayleigh. So we now have been granted a private prescription but this will involve me having to raise nearly £4,000 a month to cover tue cost of the 13 bottles of oil a month that kayleigh is now being prescribed. We finalky have the prescription, its been sent to the pharmacy and now its time to fundraise the four thousand pound each month to keep her well with the quality of life that she deserves. This seems like a huge task for me but I have no other option as this medication not only keeps her out of hospital but it gives her a life shes never had with all the horrendous side effects from all the pharmaceutical medications shes been on over the years.

Kayleigh can have up to 200 seizures a day, each puts her at risk of brain injury or fatality. Every day Kayleigh suffers like this and I do watching her. When Kayleigh was on this medication previously she had relief for the first time in 21 years. Her seizures reduced to just a few a day. She was well enough for me to be able to take her on holiday where she done horseriding for the first time and was able to experience full restful nights sleep in all of her life. Her quality of life dramaticay improved and she begun to increase some of her weight and cognitive skills that had decreased severely due to side effects of pharmaceutical medication. Watching Kayleighs health detoriate very close to death twice last year I had no alternative but to try and find a way to alleviate some of her suffering and find ways to access the right treatment for her. Despite this treatment proving to really help Kayleigh I was forced to withdraw it, seeing her seizures again rapidly increase to over 100s a day. Being informed I could only administer this if I had a prescription. A prescription she is being denied. Being a strong, self sufficient person who has always been the sole provider for myself, my nieces and my family I find it extremely difficult to ask for any form of help. This is out of my comfort zone and against all my personal morals and beliefs “having to beg strangers on the internet for help” but when I look into the eyes of my niece and see her suffering, this isn‘t about me and whats right by me, this is about her and her battles. Mine are nothing in comparison. I will do all that it takes for my loved one all the time I have air in my lungs. So please if anyone can help us in anyway at all wether its donating, sharing the link, donating goods that could be raffled, advice on fundraising or moral support, I would be extremely grateful and so would Kayleigh. Thanking you for taking the time to read about Kayleigh‘s battle........ and a HUGE thank you to all those who have donated so far.

    Christmas Eve we were informed that cannabis oil is the most suitable treatment for Kayleigh and got a private prescription. She will need 13 bottles of oil a month to maintain her dose and a good quality of life. However that comes at a huge cost of nearly £4,000 a month. So if anyone has any fundraising ideas that would be great. Huge thank you to all those who have supported us so far and contributed in various ways. Let’s hope 2020 is a year for Kayleigh’s healing. 🤞🏼💫❤️
