How Far Would You Go To Save Your Daughter This Man Did It All And Was Thrown In Jail
One of the hardest things for any parent to have to go through is watching their child suffering in pain. Adam Koessler is one such father who had to live through this nightmare. His 2-year-old daughter, Rumer Rose, is fighting Stage 4 neuroblastoma, a type of cancer with a just a 50 percent survival rate.
As any concerned parent would, Koessler tried everything to help his little girl. The cancer would cause his daughter’s stomach to hurt so badly that she couldn’t eat. He tried natural treatments involving organic/gluten free home-cooked food, alkaline water, and essential oils. Nothing seemed to work. He was backed into a corner, fighting for time and desperate for options. He then decided to treat Rumer with cannabis oil.
Koessler soon witnessed a marked improvement in Rumer’s condition. The only problem is that cannabis oil is illegal in Australia, where Koessler and his daughter live, leading to his eventual arrest.
This is Koessler and Rumer.
He started giving Rumer cannabis oil, a highly concentrated form of marijuana that has some proven medical benefits. While many might believe this was dangerous for Adam to do, he says that he saw a marked improvement in his daughter’s condition.
“Her cancer-ridden little body was alive again – Rumer had almost instant quality of life,” said Koessler about the results of the oil. “She would say, ‘Daddy, tummy’s not sore’ and she would be able to eat like a champion and began to gain weight.”
Despite these results, it is illegal to possess and distribute cannabis oil in Australia. Because of this, Koessler was arrested and barred from seeing his sick child. Almost immediately, a petition on Change.org gathered nearly 140,000 signatures calling on Australian politicians to intervene and allow Koessler to see his daughter.
Since January 2nd, Koessler was unable to see his daughter. This week, Koessler attempted to visit his daughter in the hospital, violating the conditions of his bail. However, police refused to intervene when they were called, allowing Koessler to spend time with his daughter.
