Patient Night on the Cape
If you or someone you love is suffering from a debilitating condition, please join the Massachusetts Patient Advocacy Alliance and William Noyes Webster Foundation for a free seminar on medical marijuana uses.
Jane W. Heatley, President and Director of Operations at William Noyes Webster Foundation
In 2010, Jane uprooted her life in Barnstable to become her mother’s primary caretaker in California. Over the next 3 years, Jane’s mother deteriorated both physically and mentally from advanced Alzheimer’s. When it seemed nothing could bring her relief, Jane decided to try medicinal cannabis tea. She saw firsthand how cannabis medicine, while by no means the right option for every patient, helped her mother get through each day with dignity. Jane was one of the first RMD applicants approved in the state of Massachusetts and is thrilled to be opening the William Noyes Webster Foundation at 17 American Way in Dennis next spring to benefit the patients of Barnstable County.

MPAA is the primary stakeholder regarding the implementation of the Massachusetts medical marijuana program and we work with our base of over 15,000 supporters to impact safe access through educational endeavors and direct advocacy in cities and towns across MA. http://www.compassionforpatients.com/
