A young boy who once suffered up to 30 potentially fatal seizures a month hasn’t had one in over 300 days and his family are celebrating by hosting a festival to raise awareness about the positive effects of cannabis oil.

Billy Caldwell (11) has incurable intractable and status epilepsy, which cannot be controlled through medicine or diet and he cannot come out of seizures himself without rescue medicine and oxygen.When he was a baby his parents were told to bring him home to die but his condition improved greatly after he spent two years getting specialist treatment in the US, before returning home in 2009, his mum Charlotte says the seizures “returned with a vengeance” in 2016.

Charlotte says she was a “desperate mummy” when she brought him back to the US last year, where he started receiving cannabis oil treatment.After nine months there he was allowed home to Tyrone and his prescription was transferred to his local GP, he is now seizure free and has even had a cannabis oil named after him, Billy’s Bud.Charlotte says she can’t believe how different things are for them now compared to a year ago.
