Let me introduce you to my beautiful niece Caroline ...when you think you have problems just look at her smile lifts me daily xx

This young lady is my niece Caroline who at at a tender age of 29 was diagnosed with tumours in her brain ...she over the lady four years has had surgery chemo that ravaged her body and radiotherapy...not all the tumour was removed during surgery as was deep rooted ...we knew it would come back eventually...it returned with a vengeance more chemo more treatment...2 years ago she was told no more treatment you will be dead in 6 months...she was told to book a hospice and wait for the inevitable to happen. Dexamethasone for pain ...on doing research her family mum dad husband son and Caroline decided on cannabis oil which was bought every 21 days from Spain...her consultants are aware of this and monitor her with scans every 2 months she's their guinea pig shall we say lol .....everything was going fine then she developed a numb leg and blindness in her left eye but still she ran the house walked the dog and her positivity and smile were something special...at a recent scan they discovered a cyst on the tumour which was not cancerous and felt that this was the cause of her numb leg and eyesight problem ....her consultant told her we can't operate and remove cyst as risk of infection ...so in her fight she found a second opinion in London and was told there would be no harm in taking this cyst out or draining it ...Thursday of this week she had the operation to drain this cyst and she was home by Friday morning giving everyone her attitude.. this pic is of her an hour after the operation....just to say don't feel sad she would hate that...but be positive strong encourage each other ...this young lady in my eyes is a hero an absolute legend because she will never give up fighting xxxxx

Thank you for introducing us to this wonderful person. Seems wrong that the doctors give out these gloomy prognosis, they should not take away hope, it seems to me, no one knows the future. They cannot account for an indvidual's inner strength and the effect this can have on the body. Your niece is giving hope and strength to many people, what a good reason to go on,living. Love Iris x

I'm so pleased-what courage and optimism, makes you proud to be part of the human race for once! Could I please ask where exactly she got her CBD oil In Spain? I'm trying to obtain some for pain control, but it's difficult to know what is good and genuine.

So pleased for Caroline though, bless her.

I also should add that I was given two years to live with breast cancer 16 yrs ago! My CPOD was partly caused by asthma and chest infections, but mostly from radiotherapy which damaged my lungs big time, so I feel very strongly that drs should not be so negative because many people survive longer if they believe they can, where my husband would just give up and accept his inevitable demise. God bless xxxx
