Cash Hyde’s cancer returns
If life was fair you wouldn’t be reading this story.
Cash Hyde, a three-year-old cancer patient whose use of cannabis oil was considered by his parents to be instrumental in his recovery from chemo, is back in the hospital receiving radiation therapy for his once-again prominent brain tumor.
His story has drawn international attention. From the time Cash became one of the youngest medical marijuana patients in the country, his parents did what they could to help other families as well, starting a foundation to raise money for the families of pediatric cancer patients.
While in the hospital in Utah, which has not legalized medical marijuana, Mike Hyde smuggled cannabis oil into his son’s room and put it in his feeding tube. When the boy began getting better immediately, Mike made the obvious connection.
It wasn’t long ago that Cash and his dad were the featured attraction at fundraisers to help other families. Today, celebrities Sean Cook and Tommy Chong recently held a fundraiser in California for the boy.

His parents could not be reached for comment.
