Parents credit cannabis for toddler’s radiation recovery

MISSOULA – The parents of a Missoula three-year-old say, if they had listened to the doctors, their son would’ve died.

Today Cash Hyde, 3, is cancer-free for a second time and his parents say marijuana is his best medicine.

“Cashy went through 30 rounds of radiation without one nausea or pain medication besides medical cannabis,” Cash’s dad, Mike Hyde said.

When Mike and Kalli Hyde learned Cash’s brain cancer returned in October, doctors told them he had a 30 percent chance of surviving five years. They said reoccurring brain tumors have a rare chance of shrinking, and at best, they could only stop it from metastasizing further.

They Hydes switched Cash to an all-vegan diet, alkaline-adjusted water and cannabis oil. The slowed the tumor’s growth by 55 percent, buying them time to wait for proton radiation.

The radiation shrunk the tumor. Now it’s gone, and Cash is returning to a normal life laughing with his older brother, Colten, and playing with Play-Doh. But it wasn’t easy for the Hydes to get back to this normalcy.

“I’ve had to break state and federal laws just to keep Cashy alive,” Mike Hyde said.
