Wishing Mykayla the best!
"Two weeks ago, Mykayla Comstock was an ordinary 7-year-old girl living through an extraordinary ordeal. She’s been battling leukemia since June, when a basketball-size tumor was discovered in her chest."
"Now Mykayla is in the middle of another battle—and in the national spotlight—over whether children should be able to use marijuana to mitigate the crippling effects of chemotherapy. A newly registered member of the state’s Medical Marijuana Program, she has consumed a daily gram of cannabis oil, encapsulated in a pill, since shortly after her diagnosis. The leukemia quickly went into remission, say Mykayla’s unapologetic parents, and in the months that followed she has been able to cope with the debilitating symptoms associated with her traditional cancer treatments."
"Mykayla’s parents tell their critics to consider the alternatives for pain management: highly addictive prescription drugs, including oxycodone and hydrocodone. She’s been offered both, they said, for symptoms as mild as a stomachache. Thanks to her cannabis oil, Mykayla can battle occasional nausea with little more than a ginger chew, Purchase says."
