Jonahs tumor has not grown over the last year and we have seen some shrinkage! Recently Jonah had two seizures and we do not know why! We are still in need of help to get Jonah the best care possible!
Jonahs Tumor is shrinking using cannabis oil! The tumor not only showed that it was smaller, but it is dieing off! We need help to continue treatment! Please help!
Jonah is 2 years old and was diagnosed with Hydrocephalus in Utero. We went through a lot of unknowns and we were very scared. Over the last two years Jonah has had a total of 3 brain surgeries 2 of which were shunt malfunctions. We recently decided to move to the Boston area to fulfill my wife's dream of living in New England. We went to Jonahs new Neurosurgeon and during a routine scan they found a brain tumor. They have a scan from last March that is a different kind of scan, where they can see the tumor in hindsight. They are pretty confident that it hasn't grown, but it does not mean that it won't. They are comfortable observing the tumor for 3 months before re scanning. This gives us a perfect opportunity to do this treatment in conjunction with medical advice. Jonah has been affected by the tumor because of where it is on his thalamus. Because tumors can grow at any time we are seeking this alternative treatment right away. We do not want to be faced with the decision to defy medical advice for cannabis oil treatment, even though we are confident it is a more effective and safer option.
We decided to pursue alternative treatment for him instead of chemo therapy and brain surgery since his tumor is inoperable. We decided to go to one of the only places in the country that prides itself in working with pediatrics to save kids lives through the use of cannanbis oil. The Realm of Caring in Colorado Springs, CO is one of the only places that pursues being above board in all they do and keeps medical logs and good data of all cases. Although they try to make the oil as affordable as possible, because Jonah will need higher doses, the cost will rise significantly. They test and re-test all batches of oil made to ensure they are safe for kids. There have been a decent amount of isolated cases and studies that show cannabis oil is a viable treatment to reduce tumors. This fact is very important because his tumor is inoperable. Chemo will only stop tumor growth, and we risk side effects from the chemo. Our objective is to KILL this tumor! This treatment can get very expensive, very fast! We just moved across country and now we have to move back, this along with his medical bills and treatment cost a lot of money.
Why This Can Help Others!
Jonah will be one of the first kids his age with a brain tumor of this type to go through this treatment in a controlled setting. Cannabis oil is expensive to make and there have been a ton of isolated cases with no data gathered. A lot of families take it upon themselves to do this treatment from home and make it themselves and they are getting wonderful results! We are hoping for the same outcome and we are proud to let Jonah be a trailblazer in a treatment that has the potential to cure cancer, save lives, and does not have the same nasty side effects as chemo therapy!
What we will do with the money.
All of the proceeds for this fund will go to costs directly associated with Jonah's medical bills and getting the treatment he needs to eliminate his brain tumor. Secondly, if we exceed our goal, The Jonah Funds purpose is going to bring education, awareness and help to families who are suffering with similar situations.
