I spent much of my day working at my desk with this little guy, chilling on the sofa beside me. We've grown fond of each other in recent weeks, as I've watched his health improve out of sight: Fewer seizures, improved sleep + appetite, greater awareness + responsiveness. Less puking, more smiling. It breaks my heart that in 2017, Australian culture somehow fails to support kids like Chase. There's countless research + anecdotal evidence to support his parents choice to treat him holistically with medicinal cannabis + organic plant based foods, in place of the traditional allopathic medical model. He's adored + safe + growing stronger everyday. Im so disappointed to be Australian tonight, I really am.
