Amylea, a sweet baby girl, was born in December, in Aurora, CO. Unfortunately, when her parents, Nicole and Ernie Nunez, brought their baby at home, things went seriously bad.
Nicole explains: “About a day after we went home from delivery is when she had her first seizure. She has a rare form of epilepsy. They don’t know exactly the type.”
These parents are desperately seeking a way to save the life of their baby for 2 months and try to treat her specific condition. Since the doctors In Albuquerque, New Mexico, were not able to detect the cause and thus could not provide a proper treatment, the Nunez family decided to go to Colorado.
Nowadays, the mother stays at the hospital in Aurora, while Ernie travels all the time, as he also needs to take care of their other children at home.
In order to stop the seizures, doctors in the Aurora hospital continued to prescribe the same drug cocktail. Yet, it is a fact that these medications provide severe adverse effects as well.
Therefore, the couple decided to try cannabis oil. As Ernie says:
“The medication she’s on is hard for her liver, and so we’re trying to do something different that’s not so bad on her body.”
They heard about the impressive effects of the treatment with Charlotte’s Web, a strain of cannabis, and this made them hope that there is a cure for their daughter.
The name of Charlotte’s Web was given after a young girl, Charlotte Figi, who was treated with it.
Namely, the girl had her first seizure when she had only three months, and in the following several months, her seizures were frequent and lasted from 2-4 hours. Due to all this, the girl was constantly hospitalized.
Yet, her parents discovered this cannabis strain and managed to save their little girl. Since then, numerous other children were treated with the same plant.
