Jorja Emerson was born in 2016 with a rare condition, called a chromosome deletion, that meant that she was extremely vulnerable to severe, intractable epilepsy which is resistant to conventional treatments that are available on the NHS. After 2 years of seizures and constant emergencies, and having been told by doctors that Jorja would die, her father Robin found hope in medical cannabis treatment that was working for children in countries like Canada, but were not yet legal in the UK. After Robin's intense campaigning and the hard work of a collective group of advocates and parents the law was changed in 2018 and Jorja was the first child to receive the prescription for medical cannabis that would save her life. Since receiving this treatment she hasn't had any more serious seizures and is now a happy 6 year old girl, full of giggles and enjoying life.
