Alfie is 6 years old and suffers from a very rare form of epilepsy
He suffers from clusters of 20-30 seizures per day every 7-10 days, all of which require hospitalisation and treatment with drugs which his UK doctor has said will cause him mental and physical illness because he had to be given so much before medical cannabis .
Only medical cannabis gives him significant relief from his symptoms, but access to medical cannabis remains illegal in the UK. In desperation his family have spent months in Holland where treatment with medical cannabis is legal.
The results have been dramatic.
With such treatment, his seizures come once every 27 days on average and they are less severe.
But Alfie and his family can no longer afford to live in Holland and have had to return home without one of his cannabis medications as it is illegal in the UK. Alfie and his family are campaigning to get the Home Secretary Amber Rudd to issue a licence allowing Alfie access to medical cannabis here in the UK.
We’re fully behind them.
Alfie’s case is yet more evidence that medical cannabis works.
