A household whose son was refused a cannabis-based therapy on the NHS for his epilepsy have been thrown a lifeline by a beneficiant firm.
Little Murray Gray, eight, from Edinburgh wants cannabis oil to stop debilitating epileptic seizures.
But the drugs prices £1,400 a month which his household have been fundraising to pay for – regardless of the medicine being obtainable on the NHS for the previous two years.
Murray was identified with Doose syndrome, a extreme type of epilepsy, in 2017 and had as much as 12 seizures a day.
After he ended up in a vegetative state in hospital, his mum, Karen, 46, from Edinburgh, smuggled cannabis-based medicine containing beforehand banned tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) into Scotland to save lots of her son’s life.
Since he began taking Bedrolite and Bedica – now legally accepted for use – he has been seizure-free for 15 months.
