Gold Coast terminal cancer victim invests in medicinal cannabis cliniccdaclinics
A GOLD Coast solo mum who has terminal lung cancer despite never having smoked in her life is throwing her weight – and cash – behind a $2 million medicinal cannabis crowd-funding campaign by two local doctors.
Kate Malvenan, 39, was left reeling when told she had only six to 24 months to live after being diagnosed with stage four lung cancer last September.
She began taking medicinal cannabis to ease her chronic pain, prescribed by Gold Coast-based Cannabis Doctors Australia.
Ms Malvenan, who was the first person in Australia to be legally prescribed crystal CBD, said she was a “massive believer” in medicinal cannabis and had invested in the company.
“I feel amazing – I’ve never felt better or healthier,” she said.
