Yup – the lil cheeseballer is FOUR today!

Yippee!

Still cancer free, and lovin life, his new baby sister, and his puppy dogs and stickers. He loves his brother Colty too – sometimes. That’s just how brothers are.

It’s still hard for me to believe it was 2.5 years ago that Sweet Cashy was diagnosed with a stage IV PNET brain tumor on his optic nerve and rushed to Salt Lake City for emergency surgery.

Cashy spent his 2nd birthday in the hospital, fighting for his life. Within 3 months of his 2nd birthday, Cashy was at a point where he had not eaten in 40 days, he had suffered cardiac arrest, and a stroke. Traditional treatments were killing him.

He almost lost too……

Refresh your memory HERE if you haven’t read Cashy’s story.

Cashy’s 3rd birthday was spent in Montana, happy and healthy. Cashy was cancer free. His dad Mike had taken him to the Montana Capitol to meet the politicians. Tell their story. Lobby for compassion.

By Cashy’s birthday in 2011 – dismal times were ahead – though none of us knew it. The politicos in Montana completely ignored Cashy’s story – as did many of the medical marijuana industry folks. Cashy’s wonderful story of bravery and compassion and the fight for his life was virtually ignored.

It still is in a majority of the state of Montana.

As the law changed in July of 2011 – so did Cashy’s fate. The new law was very restrictive – very prohibitive.

NOT Compassionate to children whatsoever. Not compassionate to Montanans. Period.

Mike cut his garden down. The 16 strains that had been working for Cashy were gone. Which one helped him? We’ll never know….

Cash was cancer free. His oil consumption was greatly reduced. We shoulda been home free right?

Cancer is a bitch – and an evil one at that. It came back – with a vengeance.

The fight was on. As you know – Cashy went through another battle in December of 2011. Another Christmas in a hospital, far from his home.

Another SUCCESS too! We celebrated a cancer free MRI in Salt Lake City in February 2012 with Cashy’s family at the Badda Bing.

Cashy is surrounded by a HUGE and very loving family – and those celebrations are so wonderful – and full of love. Cashys great grandmas and elders are so grateful to have him alive – they share his story everywhere.

Cashy’s story is such a wonderful one to share re: success. As far as support from Montana and it’s politicians – it’s a disgusting crime. We could educate so many with a small child……an innocent child. A wonderful child with such a brave and loving family.

We could all learn by their example.

All Cashy knows is – he wants to live – and play with his stickers, cars, and maybe his brother if they’re not squabbling. He doesn’t know any propaganda or fear. He doesn’t worry about social stigma.

LIFE – is what matters.

LOVE – surround him with it.

SUPPORT – share their story – and please support the Cash Hyde Foundation.

This family – no matter what – despite anything thrown at them – continues every day to help others. Pay it Forward. Fight the fight against childhood cancer and help to save others children.

Even while in hospital fighting for Cashy’s life – they help others.

Currently – there are about 20 Reggae Runners distributed nationally – sharing Cashy’s message of faith and hope.

That fleet is about to double – thanks to DooBons in California. Originally from Montana – they heard of Cashys story – and chipped in to increase the fleet.

20 more Reggae Runners are being distributed to hospitals in San Francisco and Oakland California. That increases the fleet to 40 Nationally!

40 more Reggae Runners out there helping children to fight cancer with smiles and laughter – directing folks to the Cash Hyde Foundation site – where folks can find the supporters and look for help for themselves.

A note from CJ Maestas – Cash Hyde Foundation Executive Director:

The Cash Hyde Foundation will be heading back to the Bay for the HT Medical Cannabis Cup to be held in Richmond, CA, June 23-24. Additionally we will be donating a small fleet of (20) “Reggae Runners” to San Francisco and Oakland Childerns Hospitals, thanks to the generious donations from Doobons. You don’t want to miss this marijuana expo, complete with seminars, the latest pot products, and, of course, the best cannabis, edibles, and concentrates Cali has to offer! Plus, a special Saturday night VIP party featuring Del the Funky Homosapien. Go to MedCanCup.com for details or to purchase tickets.

If you are in the California area for this event – make it a point to drop in and meet the Hydes! Kc Kush Taynor made the trip from the Ohio chapter of the Cash Hyde Foundation as well. They had their own Father’s Day birthday celebration in Ohio. See it HERE

Talk about excitement! The 7th National Patients Out of Time Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics is just around the corner!

Early registration ends April 4th! Call to reserve your spot TODAY! Seating is limited

Register TODAY! Early registration ends 4/4/12. Seating is limited!

I don’t know about you – but my flights are booked, bags are almost packed, and I feel like I am going to the MOTHER of rock concerts!

The lineup of speakers for the event is a world class roster of physicians from around the world. Please see agenda here: Patients Out of Time agenda

Makes my heart pound with excitement to have so many great minds in support of medical cannabis in one place, with DR. ANDREW WEIL no less!

I also have a video message to share from Founders of Patients Out of Time – Al Byrne and Mary Lynn Mathre.

Please view their greeting. A personal invitation 

In addition – Patients Out of Time has a new Facebook page. Please be sure to like, share, and stay tuned for news. There will be live updates from the Conference – and video too!

After speaking with Mary Lynn, I was so very pleased to hear that registrations are rolling in and the seats are filling. We have delegates from Montana, Colorado, California, and around the world! Physicians are coming from as far away as South Africa. New is spreading, and the professional world is responding.

I hope you will not feel threatened by so many physicians and nurses in one place, and see this for the wonderful opportunity it is. Patients are VERY welcome, as are business owners. These folks need to meet you, learn the challenges, share in your success.

It truly is great networking to help build our fight, and our cause.

Imagine the next time somebody tells you “there’s no medical value” and you can recite these physicians names, and findings. Refer folks to them for information. Network and build.

I hope to hear from many of you – and see you there!

We have such a great contingency coming so far…..it can only get better.

The more the merrier!

See you there! For you folks who can’t make it – stay tuned here, and on the Patients Out of Time Facebook Community Page.

We’ll keep you updated.

Walk Proud Warriors!
