When I started experiencing sharp pain on my left side, near my ribs, I thought it was simply from playing tennis the week before. After a few days, when the pain continued, I began to worry that I was suffering from something more serious. Just three days later, I was diagnosed with non-small-cell lung cancer. Over the next few weeks, I was informed that the cancer had made its way to my lymph nodes and stomach lining. I was given only six to nine months to live. I was anxious to start radiation or chemotherapy treatments, hoping to improve the prognosis. I was then told that these were not viable treatment options, because they would only make me weaker and more sick, and I was advised to simply enjoy my remaining time. With no help coming from my doctors, I was discouraged and nearly ready to give up. My brother, however, researched on the internet and read numerous testimonials from other cancer sufferers who had found relief through cannabis oil. With no other options, I decided to try this alternative treatment method, and I started taking a small dose orally several times per day. When the oral dosage made me overly tired, I switched to cannabis suppositories, which also allowed me take a larger dosage. I combined the cannabis oil with a healthier diet and exercise, and within a few months, my lymph nodes had returned to normal size and the tumor shrunk considerably. Within seven months of cannabis oil treatment, I shocked my oncologist by testing cancer-free.
