This story not only pulls on your heart strings, but it reminds you how easily this could happen to you.

One mother gives us a touching recount beginning with the birth of her daughter, whom she so obviously loves with all her being, up to now where she and her husband are still battling their daughter’s brain tumors with both medical marijuana and chemotherapy.

“We’re on the cutting edge of changing medical history, and to think about what this means for my daughter and her daughter and her son and their kids — it’s really incredible.”

All these families want is thorough research so they can know which strain will be effective in treating their children. How long do they have to wait?
