Former Playboy model Kerri Parker was told she needed a dozen cycles of chemotherapy to treat brain cancer.
A FORMER Playboy model has refused chemotherapy to treat her brain tumour – instead turning to illegal cannabis oil.
Kerri Parker, 34, said she will risk five years behind bars rather than undergo 12 rounds of chemo, arguing it was her “only chance” to live
۔Kerri argued she would only become sicker by starting chemo – which had been scheduled for today – with no guarantee it would save her life.
Speaking to Sunday People, the former lab technician from Norwich said: “I know using cannabis means I could be put in prison but I truly believe it is the only chance I have of living right now.
“I’ve been working hard over the past few years. I’m training for a black belt in martial arts and I’m the fittest and healthiest I’ve been, so when doctors say they want me to have treatment which will make me sick, it makes no sense to me.”
She said doctors told her no one with brain cancer had managed to make it through the 12 rounds of chemo without succumbing to the disease.
