Cannabis For Children Intl. is honored to have Prof. Samuel Verniero with us. Prof. Verniero has been recognized and awarded for his medical research and global teaching. His efforts to improve healthcare worldwide has certainly helped make many individual lives better. Unfortunately, Prof. Verniero suffers from a very rare form of MPN blood cancer called Polycythemia Vera with arterial vascular malformations and aneurysms. The additional diagnosis of AVMs puts him into classification as the only patient on earth with two offsetting terminal illnesses.
His condition is terminal. Prof. Verniero honestly admits there are days when it is hard to keep his eyes open, make recognizable sentences, and keep his mind off of suicidal thoughts but he desires to continue sharing his knowledge with others. He currently takes 50,000 mg of CBD oil every 4-6 hours along with pain medications. Without this combination, Prof. Verniero admits that his condition would be physically unbearable. Cannabis For Children Inc. is humbly honoured to have Prof. Verniero in our CFCI Scientific Board group to share his education, experiences, and wisdom. It is a truly beautiful testimony and legacy of sharing "Hope For Cures". The CFCI Global Volunteer network is managed by an all-volunteer staff.
