VERA TWOMEY – Person of the Year 2017

Leave a comment

VERA TWOMEY would do anything for her sick child,…even walking 200 miles to the Irish Parliament, in the middle of February, if that’s what it took to get her daughter relief from the daily ravages of childhood Dravet’s Syndrome.


This Irish mother, and her wonderful husband and family, spent the entire year of 2017 working to get Irish government approval for the THC/CBD-based therapy which reduced their daughter’s seizures from 30+ a day,…to zero.

Gaining support from 10,000’s of people throughout the world, but still not getting the approval needed from their government, Vera and the family fled Ireland as medical refugees and moved to Holland.

The epileptic seizures stopped, but their fight back home continued.

Finally, in late November of this year, the Irish Minister of Health granted the approval needed and the family will be back together, at home in Cork, in time for Christmas.

A happy story about a “mother willing to do anything for her sick child” …which blazes the trail for many other patient families in the future.
