Olivia starting having seizures at 6 months of age with infantile spasms. Since then, after many multiple meds, right temporal lobectomy at age 3, and many unsuccessful diets and supplementations, we have had little success in seizure control.
Upon watching the CNN documentary showing Charlotte Figi’s story, we knew the next step in this journey was to relocate to Colorado with much hope. We arrived on Dec 30, 2013, and luckily started Charlotte’s Web – a strain of cannabis high in CBD – on Jan 1, 2014.
In such a short time, we have already witnessed an improvement in her seizures, as well as being more alert and gaining new language every day. We hope the success continues as we start the weaning of her pharma meds. We are so proud and fortunate to be a part of this journey and owe it all to Realm of Caring and the Stanley family. Much love!!!
