In Australia, Adam Koessler, the father of a very sick little girl has been separated from his daughter and faces possible jail time.
Rumer-Rose Koessler, age 2, is Adam’s daughter and she has stage 4 neuroblastoma, a type of cancer that forms in nerve tissues. Given her age and the advance stage of her cancer, the 2 year old has a 50% chance of survival.
Her father, Adam, began giving her controlled doses of cannabis oil to counteract the side effects of chemo and radiation therapy. According to Adam, his daughter’s appetite came back, which helped her to gain weight, and she had the energy to spend time outdoors instead of lying in bed all day.
But last week, when Adam drove his daughter to a Brisbane hospital to seek further treatment he was arrested by police and charged with giving dangerous drugs to a person under 16. After Adam was arrested, his daughter was taken off the cannabis oil, which caused her to have seizures and she was hospitalized.
The initial terms of Adam’s bail included a restraining order against him visiting his daughter. Rumer-Rose’s mother is still with her, as she and Adam had separated.
A few days ago, a judge granted Adam supervised visits with his daughter, but despite the court order the hospital turned the father away after he drove 4 hours and waited even longer to see his little girl.
Adam will face the court again next Tuesday.
