Joey's Journey: Medical Marijuana Saves Child's Life
Knocking on death's door, 10 year old Joey Perez was slowly dying. The potpourri of prescription medications he’d consumed since the age of five were damaging his body beyond repair. The side effects were literally killing him. Doctors had no answers, or any safe alternatives. Their only suggestion was the combination of a few more meds, and to experiment with what happened next.
Mieko, Joey's mother, knew that his body was weak and shutting down. She knew his fragile body could not handle the addition of any more toxic medicines. Luckily for Joey, her experience as a legal researcher gave her the tools she needed to start her and Joey on this journey. A healing journey with an effective treatment - medical marijuana.
Joey was diagnosed with autism at 18 months old. His mother, Mieko has been fighting that battle ever since. Her life is not consumed with why Joey has Autism, she now focuses on what she can do to effectively treat her sons condition.
