Cohen Suffers an extreme version of a rare condition and needs your help to fund Medical Cannabis.
Cohen Brown is 24 yrs old and has a rare condition, Neurofibromatosis (NF1) which can occur in about 1 in 3,500 people. This disease causes benign tumors to grow through the body on nerve tissue, causing severe pain. There is always a risk of tumors turning cancerous.
Cohen has been battling a more aggressive symptom set than most with the disease and has had over 20 serious operations in his life, and due to the pain his condition has caused he has been prescribed strong narcotics from a young age, often causing him to sleep up to 18hours a day from the sedation.
Cohen is now the youngest person in the world to have a very rare type of cancer, with only 4 reported cases worldwide, of a melanoma in the Iris, additionally, he has a High specific Spinal Cord tumour in C1 , Plexiform Lumbar Region Neurofibromas and recently a new lesion in the uncus of the right Parahippocampal Gyrus.
Due to the inoperable nature of his tumors, and the severe condition he suffers, Cohen has been granted legal access to a Medical Cannabis product,

Cohen has started his first bottle this week, in his own words here is how he described it so far.
"….it's a strange feeling not being in pain after living with it for 13 years ..I feel like a part of me is missing ...I couldn't sleep as I felt different Its weird being in pain for such a long long time then boom its gone and you feel "normal" which is something I forgot the feeling of over the 13 year period and not being stoned or impaired by opioids or other drugs. When i take my night dose it rapidly kicks in, after so long I finally have a solution for my pain to recede, I've got something that finally works!…."
