At 10 months of age, Kalel Santiago of Puerto Rico was diagnosed with an unusual form of cancer called neuroblastoma. He did chemotherapy, radiation treatments, and surgery for two years– and survived.
Then he was diagnosed with something permanent: severe autism that disabled him from speaking. “While he stayed in the hospital, we saw he didn’t speak at all and had some habits that wasn’t right, like hand flapping, and walking on his toes,” his father Abiel Gomez Santiago told Yahoo News. “But we waited until he was 3 and cancer-free to take a look at his habits.”
According to Yahoo, “He and his wife Gladys– likewise parents to 2 older young boys, now 18 and 20– did a cram course in educating themselves on autism. They tried different schools and therapies and ultimately discovered excellent success with a unique surf-therapy school near their home.”
Ultimately, the Santiago family came across a treatment of real strength and potential: CBD oil. Through a fundraising program, they were able to receive a tiny bottle of the oil. Kalel was provided oral doses two times a day.
Within simply 2 days, he was finally able to speak. “He amazed us in school by saying the vowels, A-E-I-O-U. It was the first time ever,” Abiel stated. “You can’t imagine the emotion we had, hearing Kalel’s voice for the first time. It was incredible. The instructor recorded him and sent it to my wife and me and we said well, the only different thing we have actually been doing is using the CBD.”
Right after, he began using consonants, too, speaking like his parents never ever believed possible. “He said, ‘amo mi mama,’ ‘I love my mama,'” Abiel states. “I don’t know how to thank the CBD oil makers”. Kalel’s story is yet another piece of evidence piling onto the mountain of support for cannabis oil and full marijuana legalization. Please share this with as lots of people as possible!
