Landon Riddle; A Child’s Long Walk To Recovery

Landon Riddle; A Child’s Long Walk To Recovery

Recently we have had the pleasure of reconnecting with Landon Riddle. When Landon was only 3 years old he was diagnosed an aggressive form of leukemia. This was devastating and almost took his life. His mother Sierra, turned to medical marijuana after a long heart breaking time with radiation and chemotherapy, which took a devastating toll on his overall well being.

Here is an update on Landon Riddle’s Long Walk To Recovery

Update for Landon Riddle – May, 2019
Age 4: Landon went into remission on November 15, 2012 and has remained in remission now for 6.5 years.

Chemotherapy, Radiation, and all narcotics were stopped in August 2013. From this point on Landon has not taken any pharmaceuticals to keep him in remission. He has and continues to take cannabis oil daily and will for the rest of his life to ensure that he does not contract any secondary cancers from the harsh chemo, radiation and drugs.

However, the damage from the toxic chemo and drugs has been severe in many areas of Landon’s life.

Including:

  • Landon is 9 years old and he still cannot read.
  • Landon experiences severe PTSD in any stressful situation and still exhibits a low emotional intelligence when dealing with any anxiety or stress.
  • Landon struggles with relationships as he was forced during ‘treatment’ to do things that harmed him. In his mind he was abused by the medical establishment, and we agree. He was restrained and covered in bruises from the restraints and being held down. He has ZERO trust in adults and is terrified of most doctors.
  • Landon still has weakness in his arms and hands from the neuropathy and is in physical therapy to work on this.
  • Landon tends to isolate himself at home especially when he is under stress. He will act out and push everyone’s buttons due to frustration. Even though Landon is 9 years old, he reacts to the world around him as if he were 5 years old. The deficits are huge and ongoing. Landon has learned to become a control freak as he believes that if he can be in control of a situation, then he will have the ability to keep it from hurting him. He lives every single day of his life trying to control every situation.
  • Landon lives in a world where he is reminded every single day that he almost died and that he is different than the other kids at school. He sees the deficits in his brain and life and he believes that he will never get better. He truly thinks that the chemo damage can never be undone.
  • When Landon gets scared he goes into full PTSD mode and begins to severely act out. He will scream, throw a fit, and become abusive to anyone around. It is even worse when the adults that are around him do not know how to help him in this situation and it all escalates. This includes school and all areas of Landon’s life

Landon Riddle Story Updated

landon-riddle-cover

On September 30, 2012 Landon Riddle was diagnosed with T Cell Leukemia. Sierra Riddle received the devastating news that Landon was only given around a 10% chance to live beyond 24 – 48 hours. Landon beat the odds and began Chemotherapy treatment. There was immediate placement of a port into his heart for delivery of Chemo and within 30 days both his physical and psychological quality of life had diminished to a state that would break any mother’s heart.

Sierra updated their Facebook page Offer Hope For Landon on October 4, 2012.

Landon has been very down and in discomfort today, but we are getting to leave tomorrow sometime! YAY! we have chemo and a lot of procedures on Monday morning so we are going to stay in Salt Lake until then so he can rest and be in a quiet environment and not have to travel in the car back to back to back! We are very thankful he was progressed as quickly as he has, but he is not out of danger yet, infection and illness are going to be huge factors in his recovery. I’m very overwhelmed today and feeling really broken, but I am glad I can hold my baby boy in my arms and feel him breathe, there are always things to be grateful for!

This was only the beginning of little Landon’s struggle.

The doctors told Sierra that once Landon was released from the hospital, it will be best for him to continue about his life as normal as he will have a better chance of healing; however, he will be required to travel back and forth to Salt Lake (12 hours round trip) every 4 days in order to receive his chemo treatments. This put a significant financial strain on his family.

Landon was soon readmitted into the hospital as doctors were unable to get the fifth liquid medicine into him. There doctor said they may have to surgically insert a feeding tube. Landon can not understand why he must drink “yucky” medicine as he is held down to take them, he bruises easily and asks the doctors,

Why are you giving me owies?

As Landon is held down for the tube that would go down the back of his throat and into his stomach, he fights and screams and eventually pulls the tube back out of his mouth. Landon is given time to calm down and the nurse prepares to start all over again, Landon politely holds up his hand and states, “No, it’s okay, I’m not sick anymore.” The families hearts break and know that they must try again.

Unfortunately, this is only a glimpse of the horror’s little Landon and his family had to face.  As time passes Landon only got worse eventually losing his hair, losing weight and constantly vomiting. Its not until Sierra has to make a decision. Go with the majority of the population of the world that believe there is only one “choice” for cancer, chemo. Or choice a path less taken, a choice that could have a huge outcome not only for Landon’s health but their very own family name. On April 21, 2013 Sierra writes on Landon’s Facebook Page;

A very good friend of mine sent me information in the first 30 days of Landon’s diagnosis. I was in total shock. She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and was basically coming to the end of her life. She chose to go a different route than chemo, and today she is cancer free! The digging, research, phone calls, hours of exhaustive reading, medical studies done by our own government and many research doctors all showed there was an option that has been around for thousands of years.

With Landon’s type of Leukemia and the fact that he is a high risk patient, there was too much risk to go with only natural treatment. They kept that fact very quiet in fear of being judged. They discussed this with all of there family and made the choice to move forward with cannabis treatment.

They headed to Colorado for Sierra and Landon to obtain legal residency, for Landon to meet with doctors, and to start Landon on Cannabis CBD oil treatment. Landon  had miraculous results. He ingests this oil 2 times per day. CBD is the medicinal part of the cannabis plant and contains less than 0.2 percent THC, which means it has no psychoactive effect. The THC part of the plant when ingested in its raw form (oil), is amazing pain relief, amazing appetite enhancer, and counter-acts the horrible effects of the steroids and chemo which cause anger, anxiety, etc. This is why Landon began to gain weight back, why Landon is sleeping, why Landon’s body is being protected against the damage of the chemo, why his immune system is that of a normal healthy child, even with intense chemo treatment.

Time passes and Landon’s health seems to be improving and Sierra is convinced that her son is not only being helped by the cannabis but that the cannabis is actually healing him of the cancer completely.

Sierra was right, the cannabis oil not only helped little Landon with his pain, appetite, weight gain, sleep and much more the cannabis oil literally cured him of cancer. Today 10/21/2014 at Children’s Hospital Colorado Landon had his Port removal two years earlier then Protocol Treatment. Landon is 100% CANCER FREE!!
