Julian Marley was just nominated for a Grammy for Reggae Album of the Year, but the nomination is bitter sweet. Early this year at the tender age of 11, Julian’s daughter Caveri succumbed to a high grade brain tumor. The Marley family could not get quality cannabis in Florida, and didn’t get out to California to meet with Tracy and her CannaKids team until Caveri was at the end of her life expectancy. But through this encounter, Caveri was entered into Dr. Anahid Jewett’s clinical trials on Tracy’s CannaKids’ patients that have led to groundbreaking brain cancer discoveries. Join Tracy and Sophie for a hard hitting interview that covers everything from Julian’s upbringing as Bob Marley’s son, and the highs and lows the last year has brought him and his family.
About Tracy & Sophie -
Tracy Ryan launched CannaKids, a California medical cannabis brand, and the 501c3 charity, Saving Sophie, after her daughter Sophie was diagnosed with a low-grade brain tumor at just 8 ½ months old. Sophie is now 7 years old, off chemo and living an amazing life with the help of CannaKids’ medical tinctures.
Sophie’s tumor is now being studied and is growing in humanized mice under renowned cancer researcher Dr. Anahid Jewett. Additionally, sixteen more CannaKids patients currently are currently enrolled, all in varying stages of disease.
Through CannaKids successes in understanding how cannabinoids work within the human body, it has been crucial in leading them to the groundbreaking cancer findings that will be published to the medical journals this year!
