- Review by the Book Excellence Awards
Rhythm Star Dimaguila Adams was born over 2 months prematurely on May 20th, 2015. She struggled for life. Doctors were not sure she would make it. But like a warrior, she fought and pulled through.
When she was 7 months old, she began experiencing seizures. Sadly, she was diagnosed with a rare and dangerous form of epilepsy called Infantile Spasms. For the next year, she battled not only seizures, but the horrible side effects of the usual epilepsy pharmaceutical drugs. All we could do was watch as our little girl stopped developing, was always drowsy, and unknown to us, her liver slowly being destroyed.
We made the decision to ween her off those drugs and try CBD oil. Slowly but surely, our daughter began returning to her playful and happy self. In January 2016, Rhythm arrived in the USA. Not long after her arrival, the seizures stopped. While still behind in development, she is happy, playful and catching up on lost time. CBD oil, for Rhythm, was a miracle that we prayed for.
This book is dedicated to you, our beautiful Rhythm. We want your story to bring hope to all other parents with a child struggling with Infantile Spasms.
