Give Teagan access to medical cannabis now!!

My daughter Teagan has a very rare genetic epilepsy condition called Idic15. It can cause severe seizures which are unresponsive to almost any medications. She can have up to 300 seizures a day. It’s so severe that she's recently needed to be placed into and induced coma just to give her body a break.
Teagan's seizures are resistant to all medication and she is severely ill. Teagan has now been in hospital for 21 days having life threatening seizures constantly. We are in London far from home with no understanding of when we’ll get home.
We have asked our doctors to prescribe cannabis based medicines for Teagan either the pharmaceutical cbd only medicine Epidiolex or full extract oil such as Bedrocan. We are told both are unavailable to Teagan at this time. They will try for Epidiolexafter the 1st November 2018 when the Home Office intends to change the law allowing these prescriptions to happen, but have been advised this won't be the date we can physically have the medication.
This situation is urgent we are asking the Secretary of State for Health to please help us to help Teagan by issuing urgent guidance and education for Specialist Doctors so they have the tools to make this happen for us. We feel they want to help but can’t because they have no support with it.
Please sign and share this petition and help me make our family’s only wish come true. And please like our Facebook and Twitter pages Help For Teagan for all updates on Teagan's journey.
