Vera Twomey’s daughter Ava suffered up to 100 seizures a day, and Vera feared that without cannabis, Ava could die. In her book “For Ava” dedicated to her daughter, she writes “ I strove to think of a way to alleviate her suffering and give her a chance at a better, healthier life.” Vera has been a fierce and relentless advocate for access to medical cannabis in Ireland, after discovering it could help her daughter Ava when nothing else worked. Vera shares her families story with Montel on this episode of Let’s Be Blunt. She walked 200 miles from her home in Cork to Dublin to raise awareness and force political dialogue on the subject and was joined by thousands of supporters along the way. Her family had to become medical refugees in Holland at one point in order to get the medication their daughter desperately needed. You won’t want to miss hearing this families incredible story!
