THE medical miracles of cannabis oil continue to dumbfound mother Jessica Rush.
Her two-year-old April Tognoni lives with myoclonic epilepsy, an incurable illness.
Since taking the oil young April’s thousand seizures a day have reduced to anywhere between one-hundred to six.
The Advocate spoke with Miss Rush in June this year, where April had begun interacting with her mother – an impossible task before.
Today Miss Rush fought back emotions as she told the tale any mother would never forget.
“It tears me every time,” she said.
“She can now say ‘mum’.
“She looks at me and says ‘mum’, I say ‘yes April’ and she gives me a big grin, as if to say she proud to say mum.”
Medicinal cannabis has also helped Ulverstone mum Natalie Daley, who has been fighting a terminal cancer diagnosis since June last year.
Mrs Daley said the oil helped fight nausea symptoms and her latest scan has revealed an exponential reduction in the size of her tumours.
