I am raising money for my CBD oil as it is still not available on prescription and the amount and strength I need is expensive.

by Ruth Sheen in Par, England, United Kingdom

My name is Josie, I am 10 years old and have many health problems including epilepsy, which makes me feel very tired and depressed at times, it sometimes makes me cry which is heartbreaking for my mum and dad. I have the type of epilepsy that is poorly controlled by medications, I was on the ketogenic for several years but it stopped working and I am not well enough to undergo any surgery. My mum and dad have been buying me CBD oil since March 2018 after my seizures became much worse and I ended up in hospital again. The CBD has worked really well, I was able to come off my regular pain control and it reduced my seizures so much that I have only had a couple of small episodes of seizure activity since April 2019. Unfortunately  l am still unable to have it on prescription. My epilepsy consultant has recommended that I have it as I am doing so well but the Bristol consultant won't prescribe it for me as I have an undiagnosed disorder which is really unfair. My mum has written to our local MP and he wrote to the Health Minister but we have got nowhere????. It is very expensive at £600 a month and my mum and dad need some help to keep buying it for me. Thank you for reading my story ☺️

Let's make 'Josie's CBD oil.' happen
