After Living As A Vegetable For Nearly Four Years, She Wakes Up Thanks To A Special Treatment
New Zealand teen Grace Yeats suffered a rare form of brain illness called basal ganglia necrosis when she was only ten. For nearly four years she had been silenced by the illness, she was unable to move or speak. She was trapped in her own body.
After her most recent surgery, Grace was able to speak after almost 4 years of living as a vegetable. She had been under a $1,100 monthly medicinal marijuana treatment called spray Sativex. Doctors believe it was this that caused her miraculous breakthrough.
