A six-year-old girl who helped inspire one of Utah’s newest laws died Saturday morning.
Charlee Nelson sometimes suffered from hundreds of seizures in a single day. The girl’s parents were among those who reached out to law makers for the legalization of cannabis oil in Utah for medical use. The resulting bill was officially called Charlee’s Bill.
The little girl leaves behind a big legacy.
“We just felt honored. We just felt completely honored that her legacy would be continued on after she was gone. That she could help other children to benefit from this, that she never had a chance to try.” said Catrina Nelson, Charlee’s mother.
