Cannabis for Caitlin

Caitlin is a teenager who was diagnosed with severe uncontrolled epilepsy at 4 years old, however her developmental decline began at 18 months. She currently experiences 4 different types of generalised seizures (Tonic Clonic, Tonic, Myoclonic and Absent), which involve her whole brain. Although Caitlin is medicated, she still experiences multiple seizures on a daily basis. Every day Caitlin is required to take 9 different medications, totaling to 23.5 tablets to try and manage her seizures. Medical professionals have previously applied for a funded clinical trial, however this was declined by the previous Health Minister. This petition has been created to ask the Western Australian Minister for Health, Honourable Roger Cook MLA, to approve a medicinal cannabis oil trial/provide funding for Western Australian children, like Caitlin, suffering from severe uncontrolled epilepsy.
