Tim Harding spent his career entertaining kids across the country, but now all he wants is to help is little daughter Arielle.
Tim, 37, and his wife Natasha, 31, have done everything they can to manage their daughter’s illness.
Arielle was diagnosed with epilepsy at 15mths old, and suffers between 50 to 100 seizures every day.
Arielle’s epilepsy is drug-resistant and she suffers debilitating side effects – including severe tremors – from most medications, the family are now hoping she will be chosen to trial a new cannabis-derived drug.
‘This is the only relatively natural treatment that has any anecdotal evidence of working,’ Tim explains.
‘Other than the ketogenic diet, which didn’t work, there’s no natural way to treat epilepsy.’
‘We love her so much – she’s an absolute champion. We’re keeping our fingers crossed she gets this treatment so she can live life to the fullest,’ says Tim.
Tim shared on Facebook: “We just need to convince the politicians to back it and the public to change their minds about cannabis.”
