Landon McElroy is 5-years-old and his parents describe him as a happy and strong kid.
"Probably the toughest kid I've ever met," his father Tim McElroy said.
"He's been through more in his first five years of life than anybody I know," his mother Suzanne Pickering said. Later, he developed Lennox Gastaut Syndrome, which means Landon suffers from several different types of seizures on a regular basis.
"It's a pretty helpless feeling, a lot of times he'll cry and just stare off into space," McElroy said.
Landon's tried numerous medications, diets and surgeries, but no luck. That frustration doesn't compare to the damage the seizures have done to his body.
"He used to be able to say about 20 words and due to the seizures and the affect that it's had on his brain, he is not able to communicate with us," Pickering said.
Landon's parents said they're willing to do anything to help their son, even move to Colorado, which legalized the use of cannabis. They want to try a treatment involving medical marijuana. It's called Charlotte's Web and researchers said this type of marijuana isn't psychoactive, meaning it's high in CBD, a chemical used for medicinal purposes; and it's low in THC, a chemical in pot that gets users high.
Landon's family said many of their friends from support group also made the jump to Colorado, and they're not alone.
