Real Life Story of a Boy Who Took Only Natural Supplements Like CBD To Help Shrink His Brain Tumor

This is a real life experience of a boy named, Lachie Love and his battle with brain tumor. Lachie was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) in December 2022.

Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) is a highly aggressive brain tumor cancer and very difficult to treat. It happens in the lowest part of the brain called the pons. They control essential functions like blood pressure, heart rate and breathing. DIPG progresses rapidly making the brain tumor very difficult to treat. Around 300 children are diagnosed with DIPG every year in the US. The brain tumor is often diagnosed in both males and females within the age of 5-9.

The sad fact about being diagnosed with this kind of brain tumor is that the life expectancy of children is around 9 months. After Lachie was diagnosed with cancer both parents and doctors were expecting the tumor to not shrink. But miraculously the tumors shrunk despite all odds.

His parents shared that after radiation treatment was over, Lachie was only on natural supplements. He takes 10 pills in the morning and 8 in the evening including CBD Oil, fish oil, melatonin, turmeric and ground sea cucumber.

Six months after radiation therapy was over and after taking natural supplements the results were a complete turnaround.

Family members couldn't stop thinking that the time for saying goodbye was near and doctors wanted the family to hope for the best and prepare themselves if things become worse.

During the radiation therapy their son was in a wheelchair unable to walk or talk. He was completely dependent on his family for everything. It was completely normal for their parents to wonder how long they had until they had to say goodbye to their own son.

Lachie’s condition started getting better after he was on natural supplements like CBD oil. He was able to get up from the wheelchair and walk by himself for a short while.

Throughout the ordeal Lachie was not aware of the diagnosis. His parents encouraged him to come up with a bucket list of things he would like to do and they have tried their best to make it happen.

DIPG is an extremely aggressive brain cancer and in most cases DIPG are often described as terminal. Living with this illness is not only physically and emotionally challenging, but it is also financially straining. The family had to set up a Givealittle page to help fund his treatment as the cost of supplements, physio and the fact that the parents had to quit work to take care of him is financially challenging. For example, they had to pay $160 twice a week for physio and the cost of CBD was racking up to $200 per month.

Lachie's parents want more research done on children with brain tumors, because the survival rates for kids with brain tumors are improving. At the same time the caregiving process for children with brain tumors needs to be more robust. Oftentimes children with terminal illness are often neglected.

It is always great to read about these kind of cases and to know that CBD has had a positive impact on someone's health, but as for now here are some facts on CBD and cancer:

It is too early to make any claims about CBD as a cancer treatment. Though some research has shown some promising facts, the finding is yet inconclusive.

But CBD can manage cancer symptoms and side effects from cancer treatment like:

  1. Stimulate appetite

  2. Relieve pain

  3. Treat nausea

  4. Reduce stress and anxiety

  5. Promote sleep and rest

Research on CBD and cancer is still ongoing. Some studies have shown that CBD may have anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor properties to combat cancer. However, always consult with your medical care provider if you plan on making CBD as

part of your treatment.
