The March for Compassion Video Series – Tommy’s Story

By Compassionate Care NY

This is part of the March for Compassion video series highlighting the importance of medical marijuana for the family of Thomas Frank Williams, 8 years old from Lockport, NY. His family is advocating for passage of the Compassionate Care Act in New York. Thomas has been diagnosed with Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome and suffers from persistent seizures. Medical marijuana has been shown to help other children with the same condition, and may be the only drug that can help Thomas. The Compassionate Care Act can bring comprehensive medical marijuana access, under tight regulation, to New York, and help Thomas get the treatment he needs.
