Her youngest child Christina, born normal, began having seizures at 3 months old. After a barrage of tests, she was diagnosed with cryptogenic, generalized epilepsy and put on her first medication.
Anneliese has spent the past 10 years searching for relief for her daughter. Christina has tried 16 different anti-epileptic drugs, Vagal Nerve Stimulator, Ketogenic diet (3 times), GF/CF diet, stem cell transplants in 3 different countries and 3 brain surgeries. Thousands of seizures and hundreds of medicine side effects and surgeries have left her mentally and physically disabled. Christina tried medical grade cannabis oil in January 2014. She had a 90% reduction in seizures and began making huge developmental gains during this trial period. Due to Florida’s restrictive laws as well as the Federal road blocks, appropriate medical grade cannabis options were not readily available to her. Christina’s condition deteriorated without adequate access to the very medicine that made her better and improved her quality of life.
Anneliese has traveled to several states and works with growers, doctors and research scientists to continue providing whole plant oil blends rich in CBD to Christina in an effort to keep the seizures under control.
