"When I walked down the hallway of University of Michigan Mott's Children Hospital, Cancer Center in 2015, looking upon what seemed like endless rooms with children fighting for their lives and suffering to stay alive, while the young girl's room I just walked out of had the answer to surviving, which she did twice. My Compassion's purpose became clear and as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit I knew we could make an impact through research." Heidi Parikh
My Compassion's research on cancer and chemotherapy with cannabinoid therapeutics is designed to help doctors understand dosing, side effects and drug interactions so they may better assist their patients. Our first clinical study is for Use of Medical Cannabis for the treatment of Chemotherapy Induced Nausea and Vomiting (CINV) led by Dr. Elliot Levine, Principal Investigator along with Dr. Robert Melamede Senior Research Scientist.
Chemotherapy weakens the immune system and lessens the ability for patients to eat. In states where cannabis is legal, patients who use cannabinoids to treat these side effects and even cancer itself are showing positive results but lack a clear understanding on the correct dosage.
Cancer is an epidemic that affects 1 out of 3 people, we must join together and find a way to treat this disease that is beneficial! Too many patients and their loved ones suffer needlessly when other options are available. Your donations help support clinical studies that develop the building blocks necessary to complete the most comprehensive research to date on cannabis and cancer including cancer treatment.
