Cancer. The very word strikes fear into the hearts of many. It is a painful journey where one has to stand witness to their dear ones die slowly....from the inside. While many get through it with strong hope and determination...there are those..children who do not know what is happening to them or why it is happening to them. The only thing they do know is the 'pain.' And any parent would gladly take their child's place...they would do anything....anything to cure their children.
Here is one such parent, Adam Koessler a father in Australia whose daughter Rumer Rose Maujean was diagnosed with cancer.
Parents can hardly stand when their kid get a simple paper cut. Imagine having to watch your daughter waste away before your eyes because of a disease with no apparent cure. Adam was distraught. It was when he was about to lose all hope that he heard about the effects of cannabis oil in treating cancer.
For those of you who don't know, Cannabis has been proven to be a substantial source of probable cure for many ailments and diseases. Therefore making it one of most heated topics to be ever debated upon in the world today. It has been observed that it helps in alleviating the associated suffering of conditions such as cancer. But the fact that it is a very highly concentrated form of marijuana is the biggest concern.
Whatever it was made of, Adam decided to give it a shot and started to administer cannabis oil to his daughter. And when it yielded so much improvement in his daughter's condition...he was elated!
And Rumer Rose's condition kept on improving! Adam says,"It was nothing short of miraculous. Her cancer-ridden little body was alive again – Rumer had almost instant quality of life."
"She would say 'Daddy, tummy's not sore' and she would be able to eat like a champion and began to gain weight," said Koessler.
All was not well though....
Even though numerous research and studies in the recent years have highlighted on the medicinal use of cannabis, it still remains illegal in many countries, including Australia. This was the main reason why Adam was arrested for being in possession of the illegal substance and for administering the same to his daughter. But it didn't take long for the retaliation to take place, just a day after his arrest a petition on Change.org was created in his favor and has gathered over 140,000 signatures. But the father and daughter.....
The father was being punished by the law for doing something that saved his daughter's life. The worst part was Adam was ordered by the court that he was barred from seeing his daughter since January 2nd. But just a week later, he defied the order and went to see his beloved daughter. Even though the cops were called, the men in blue chose not to intervene, letting the father see his daughter for a while at least.
