Dad Gives Toddler Battling Brain Cancer Medical Marijuana

Report By: Nina Rai

May 4, 2011: A toddler afflicted by deadly brain tumor is causing a buzz in the medical circles, after his father unable to bear his excruciating pain administered medical marijuana to him. It not only eased rapidly the infant’s pain but even led him to apparently making a full recovery from the lethal disease.

The infant 2-year old Cash Hyde was suffering from a life-threatening brain tumor but recovered after his father Mike Hyde from Missoula in Montana, secretly administered cannabis oil (medical marijuana) to his son to ease his pain.

Cash Hyde lovingly referred by his doting family and friends as Cashy was a perfectly normal baby at the time of his birth in June, 2008. But by the time he celebrated his second birthday, his health had started deteriorating fast.

In the year 2010 shortly after Cashy’s second birthday, he started getting sick day-by-day without any respite, reports claimed. Initially he was mistakenly diagnosed by doctors as suffering from glandular fever.

A second opinion was taken. After due tests, the worried parents of Cashy, Kalli and Mike were told by the doctors the grim news that their infant son Cash Hyde has been diagnosed with a stage 4 - brain tumor, a deadly form of cancer.

Cash then had to undergo regular cancer treatment in the form of chemotherapy. This is medically required to reduce the tumor’s growth within the brain. Unfortunately this treatment comprising of high doses of chemo-radiation made the infant very ill. Moreover it had devastating side effects such as severe bodily pain, losing of body hair, blood infection as also seizures and convulsions.

Watching his little one undergoing so much suffering, his worried father recently revealed, that it was increasing becoming unbearable for him to watch his pain as a parent. Moreover even the doctors were repeatedly telling that Cashy was likely to succumb to the illness because his condition was really bad. He then took a controversial decision to give his son cannabis oil, with the sole intention of at least easing his pain.

Surreptitiously, Mike then started giving Cashy cannabis oil through a feeding tube, unknown to doctors. Miraculously, the little boy went on to made a full recovery from this deadly disease and is today living a normal healthy life.
