In early 2014 our son William was found to have a high grade brain tumour. After over two years of conventional treatment, including chemo, radiotherapy and surgery we were told that there was no more the NHS could do for William. We then started him on Cannabidiol and a Ketogenic Diet and his tumour went on to shrink by two thirds and was stable for two years before starting to grow again in early 2019.
This website and blog was started to try and help William and others like him by sharing information on what he’s been though and presentations we’ve attended – we also set up a Facebook Page. After the tumour reduction we proposed and helped fund a £100,000 Research Project into Cannabidiol in an attempt to find out what caused the initial tumour reduction – the project started in early 2018.
We’re now using Make William Well to campaign and fundraise for more research into compounds found in the cannabis plant called Cannabinoids (of which Cannabidiol is just one) and childhood brain tumours.
