I’m writing you this letter today to give you some very unfortunate news! I am dying from Radiation Necrosis. (Cell Death) Patient’s who get radiation necrosis, do not survive, and there’s very little research. There is no treatment except to attempt to control my major brain seizures. Therefore, doctors at UCSF Medical Center -Department of Neurological Surgery and Neuro-oncology Clinic are keeping a very close eye on my condition. My new doctor is building a educated group of brain surgeons and neurologists on the team. Last year USCF Brain Tumor Center was ranked 1 of the top 5 brain center in the USA.
I am sure you are in shock, you are not sure how to respond, maybe afraid to be near someone you know who’s dying but please try to be here for me… I really need your support and your help.
Now I have brain MRI’s every 2 months. My body has already begun it’s decent! Doctors are still not quite sure of my timeline yet but suggested preparing for end-of-life. It may take a couple months to determine the rate of growth.
I am in tremendous pain every single second! I have already lost a lot of brain functions, motor function, balance, memory, and coordination just to list a few. To make matters worse I am having serious and major seizures. Some seizures have lasted up to 20 minutes and have stopped my breathing. December 2011-present I have been rushed to ER several times because of these seizures. Right now, doctors would like to brain surgery again, however, due to my past brain surgery complications it’s to harmful to do the same surgery they preform on other patients. Therefore, my doctors are in the process of attempting to control them using seizure mediations. Please continue to read more about my medical condition…

WHO IS ANGEL RAICH?
It’s hard to believe after all these years of fighting to stay as healthy as possible my life is coming to a graceful, painful, end… I have create and made history. I have been to the US Supreme Court in two cases and in 2012 my third. I sued John Ashcroft and Alberto Gonzales for the right to posses, use, and cultivate medical cannabis in a federal case that made history upon it’s filing and again when we one in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. This case may have had the appearance of being only about medical cannabis, but in fact, the case won and went to the US Supreme Court using the Commerce Clause. What does this have to do with Obama Care? The “mandate & tax” is commerce. Therefore, it’s my Gonzales v. Raich case both side are using as their legal arguments heading to the US Supreme Court again now.
