Cancer is not only one of the most fatal, but one of the more common health epidemics in modern American medicine. This is evidenced by the fact that 39.6 percent of individuals, male or female, will be diagnosed with some type of cancer at a point during their lifetimes.
Here’s one story about David Hibbitt of Staffordshire, UK, who was diagnosed with cancer. His doctors gave him a prognosis of 18 months to live, because he refused to undergo chemotherapy.
“I felt like the chemo was killing me and I had nothing to lose,” Hibbitt told Metro. “I could not really accept I was going to die.”
He heard from his friends about cannabis oil and how it had cured many people of cancer in the past. This wasn’t that simple for him “I’ve never been into drugs,” he said.
In 2013, he underwent radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery to remove his large intestine, but it was unsuccessful at stemming the spread of his cancer. In the end, he was willing to try anything, so he gave the cannabis oil a shot.
Mr Hibbitt, who works in advertising, added: ‘This time they told me there wasn’t a lot they could do.
‘In July, after doing a lot of research, I got some cannabis oil. I was having chemo, and I was getting to a point where I couldn’t really do much, I had no energy.
‘In August I decided I’d had enough and I was going to stop the chemotherapy.
In October, he had an operation to remove the affected lymph nodes at the Royal Stoke University Hospital.
But he chose to carry on taking cannabis oil rather than have any more treatment, deciding against further chemotherapy sessions.
Following a scan in January he was given the all-clear – paving the way for him to organise his wedding.
Mr Hibbitt, who has a five-year-old son, Ashton, said: ‘We never thought this would happen, it’s great. Fingers crossed now I will grow old.
‘I feel really good and I hope my story will help other people.’
