CEO, Rylie's Sunshine @ President, Rylie's Smile Foundation 501C3
In 2013, at the age of 7, Rylie was diagnosed with aggressive bone tumors that disintegrated her facial bones. Her mother, Janie, learned about the efficacy of cannabis oil against cancer and decided to give it to Rylie hoping it might help minimize her bone tumors and prevent recurrence. With the help of whole plant cannabis oil, Rylie defied everyone’s expectations. Rylie’s smile returned!
