During the last year Mr. Bate was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive Stage IV Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The usual chemotherapeutic regimens for this are very toxic, and most people cannot tolerate the side effects. After some research, Mr. Bate went to the Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis where he was given multiple rounds of chemotherapy. Utilizing multiple Cannabinoid oils, Mr. Bate tolerated the chemotherapy with minimum side effects, and he never had problems with nausea, vomiting or weight loss. Mr. Bate is now cancer free, and he strongly believes that he would not have survived if not for Cannabinoid oil therapy. This inspired Mr. Bate to be one of the founders of the Community Cannabis Center in Delray Beach, Florida., in the hopes of educating people on the positive health effects of this therapy.
