“My name is Becky and I am a healthy and active 43 year old female. In March of 2013, I was diagnosed with an intramedulary spinal tumor at L1. In June of 2013, 40% of the tumor was removed by UCSF and was biopsied as a Grade 1 Astrocytoma and I was prescribed 37 rounds of radiation. By August of 2013, the tumor had not only completely grown back, but had increased in size…about 3 centimeters tall and over a centimeter wide. At this point, it was pushing on the spinal cord enough that I was losing function of bowel, bladder, and especially, right leg. USCF admitted me as an emergency and they excised the entire tumor, which then biopsied as a Grade 4 Glioblastoma. More radiation ensued and almost a year of Temodar. Just over a year later, in October of 2014, it was discovered that the Glioblastoma had returned in its entirety and was once again taking away my function. In November of 2014, I went through 10 massive radiation treatments. In conjunction with what was said to be extreme and unconventional radiation, I also started a regimen of [Constance’s] Cannabis Oil. Slowly, I built my tolerance until I hit the full dose. I followed the regimen for 3 months starting in November of 2014 and finished in January of 2015. In December of 2014, I also started Avistan and CCNU as my chemo. In March of 2015, the MRI’s showed a significant reduction in the size of the tumor. Both my oncologist and my radiologist seemed both impressed and excited at such significant results which leads me to believe they didn’t expect such a drastic change in my status.”
