Former Miss UK Kerri Parker has been battling brain cancer for five years. Earlier this year, she was told that her case is already terminal. She decided to skip chemotherapy and opted for medical cannabis instead.
Now, the 34-year-old model, beauty queen, Playboy bunny, stunt double, and Army medic says that medical cannabis has “shrunk significantly.”
No to chemotherapy
It was in 2013 when Parker was first diagnosed with brain tumor. That same year, she underwent surgery to remove the tumor, and was then declared to be in remission.
In September 2018, however, doctors told Parker that her cancer had returned. This time, the tumor is inoperable and her case is terminal.
Doctors recommended that she undergo six cycles of chemo and one year of radiotherapy in order to extend her life. But she refused to heed their advice and went for a different treatment plan: medical cannabis.
Parker had said that staying in the hospital so she could have a few extra months alive isn’t what treatment is all about.
Doctors had been upfront in telling her that no terminal brain cancer patient had survived through all rounds of chemo. Patients before her had succumbed to the disease before completing all cycles.
Tumor has shrunk!
Parker has been using cannabis oil since her second diagnosis. She found treatment at a clinic in the United States as the drug is not yet readily available in the UK.
Almost a year since using medical cannabis, Parker says the drug working. According to her, cannabis has stopped her seizures and her recent scans reveal that her tumor has shrunk to half. She said that she feels her brain is “in the best it has ever been.”
In fact, Parker hopes to be cancer-free in less than three months.
Her goal now is to gain back her weight and fit into her size six clothes. She explained that cannabis purged her body of cancer and that, in the process, she had lost two stone and dropped to a UK size zero.
“I’m going to give myself a life.”
Parker recalled that she had thought brain cancer would kill her. But now it won’t and she finally has a life.
She said that she has proven doctors wrong when they told her cannabis does not cure cancer, that it would make her condition worse, and that it would kill her. They also told her that cannabis only works in kids.
Parker admitted that what the doctors told her scared her so much that she was ready to sign her life away to have chemo and radiotherapy. But not anymore, she contended.
She said that if she can shrink half her brain of cancer, she will shrink the other half. She will shrink it down so that there not a single cancer cell that is left and can replicate.
“The reality is, I just cured terminal cancer, and I’m actually going to give myself a life,” Parker said.
According to her, she used the Rick Simpson cannabis oil, which contains high levels of THC. The RSO has eased her symptoms in an incredible way.
