Story

Alexa, age 10 has refractory epilepsy and rett syndrome. She was a happy vibrant child until seizures riddled her tiny body and made her very sick. She spent 7 months in hospital bed, having no quality of life, needing oxygen daily and lost all basic skills. Sadly, epilepsy medications failed to work and she only suffered horrible side effects.

But then we met a neurologist in emergrncy dept while abroad in NL hospital prescribes medicinal cbd oil. Alexa started on this natural plant medicine and she started to be more aware and less of a zombie, and she started to have a much improved quality of life. She learned to drink from cup again and developed more skills and it kept her out of hospital. She no longer needed daily oxygen or rescue meds.

The medicinal oil is privately purchased from clinic in London and we spend hundreds of pounds every month to keep Alexa safe. I am Alexa's full time carer and financially it's difficult having to find extra funds every month to help pay for her oil. But her seizures are now much shorter and not so life threatening and she no longer needs rescue medicine constantly.

We have more of a quality of life now on the plant medicine because there was so much concern over Alexa suffering sudden death in epilepsy which was a reality on the epilepsy meds.

Sadly her medicine is not funded on NHS and until then we need to keep giving Alexa the oil and to help fund it every month we do need help from the public.

If you can spare a few pennies to help our little girl stay safe and out of hospital and lead a better life then please help if you can. It makes a real difference!
Hugs from Alexa xxx
