Four-Year-Old Brain Cancer Patient Latest Casualty of Medical Marijuana Crackdown(November 17, 2012)
Missoula, MT (PRWEB) November 17, 2012
Cash Cashy Hyde passed away in his fathers arms this week. The four-year-old Montana boywhose malignant brain cancer had been in remission while he received consistent medical cannabis treatmentsis the latest casualty in the federal governments war on voter-approved medical marijuana, says John Malanca, a close friend of the Hyde family, and founder of the medical marijuana information website UnitedPatientsGroup.com.
Malanca recounts the Hyde familys ordeal: Desperate to find anything to keep their young child Cash alive, after traditional treatments and medications failed to slow the growth of the malignant tumor in his brain, Mike and Kalli Hyde turned to high-CBD cannabis oil. Cashs cancer immediately went into remission, and he started to live a more normal life.
Cash was comfortable, started eating again, and recovered his desire to play. A news story about Cash can be viewed on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tmviQBB5DHs.
Then, last summer, law enforcement officials in Montana came down hard on the medical marijuana industry. Rather than face the risk of being stormed by armed agents and subjected to steep fines or jail time, many legally-compliant medical cannabis dispensaries in Montana closed down.
The federal crackdown resulted in the closure of most of the medical marijuana dispensaries in Montana, and cut off the Hydes access to the therapeutic cannabis oil that was keeping Cashs cancer at bay. Once Cashs medication was cut off, his cancer came back out of remission.
We put out a call to action, asking people to donate cannabis oil for Cashs healthand there was a heart-warming outpouring of donors and support, said Malanca. Unfortunately, by the time we got Cash the medication he needed, his cancer could no longer be controlled.
Malanca says people all over the world are grieving Cashs passing. He encourages supporters to mail letters to Mike and Kalli Hyde c/o United Patients Group, 336 Bon Air Center, Suite #361 Greenbrae, CA 94904. Donations to the Cash Hyde Foundation are also being accepted.
The Hyde Family has established the Cash Hyde Foundation to help prevent unnecessary loss of health and life through advocacy of progressive and responsible medical marijuana policies, law enforcement, and legislation: Cashys Law. The foundation also supports increased medical marijuana research, cannabis health education, and pediatric cancer research.
