Neville and Sharon Kelly are more than grateful…
In March of 2014, Neville and Sharon Kelly were grappling with shattering news; Sharon was diagnosed with stage IV terminal lung cancer and given 6 to 9 months to live. “I was desperately searching the internet looking for information or any confirmation that cannabis can be used to fight cancer,” said Neville.
The Kelly’s found their way to a CULTURE article on Stan and Barb Rutner, a married couple who both faced cancer and both beat it, happily exclaiming that cannabis has improved their quality of life every day since. “When I stumbled across this story, every hair on my head stood up and my heart started racing.” Neville contacted the CULTURE office shortly after.
“We received a response from Jeremy Zachary with contact details and noticed he had cc’d Stan’s son-in-law as well. The rest is history. The compassion shown to us was overwhelming, and John & Corinne Malanca from the United Patients Group could not help us enough. We spoke with each other using Skype several times and we learned so much from them.”
While Neville and Sharon are from Australia, where the ingestion, production and purchasing of cannabis is very much illegal, they took the legal risk and came out on top. Their story is not only heart warming, but a grave reminder as to why cannabis use for all suffering ailments should absolutely be an option.
“This chance meeting, where we believe I was lead to your site, was the beginning of a lifesaving journey. You never know the power of what you put to print, and what it can ultimately accomplish.”
To the Kelly’s– in regards to your bravery, optimism and for sharing your truly heart warming story– thank you.
Watch Sharon explain her journey.
