Cannabis saved my baby’s life: Mother claims daughter made miraculous recovery when she gave her drug after being told the 19-month-old had just days to live
The mother of a toddler who was sent home from hospital to die claims her daughter is now making a miraculous recovery thanks to cannabis.
Rachael Garner, 33, was told by doctors that her daughter Nettie Raenetta – who suffers with cerebral palsy and epilepsy – had just a few days to live after she fell ill with pneumonia.
But in a desperate act to save her daughter’s life, Ms Garner fed her cannabis oil after reading articles and medical journals which described it as a cure.
And to the astonishment of doctors, Ms Garner, a qualified pharmacy technician, claims 19-month-old Nettie has made a remarkable recovery in just one month.
Ms Garner, a mother-of-four from Pensacola, near Florida, US said she was in ‘such disbelief’ when doctors told her there was nothing more they could do for her daughter, and that she should go home to die ‘peacefully’.
She said: ‘I couldn’t believe it, they didn’t even give her a chance.
‘I knew cannabis had helped others and after doing some research myself, I was convinced that this treatment would not only be the best option, but the safest.’
