Before his daughter Sadie was born, Brian Higuera could never have pictured doing interviews with news reporters, speaking in front of large audiences at health conferences, or sitting on the board of a major charitable organization. But Brian’s life has been anything but typical since the birth of his daughter Sadie.
Don’t miss your chance to hear Brian’s inspiring story when he takes the stage at Believe this April. He will share his family’s unique experience, discuss his role as CBD advocate, and outline the incredible work he is a part of as an ECHO board member.
Choosing Against the “Hero Pill…”
Brian’s daughter Sadie was born with a rare genetic disease. Given mere months to live by her doctors, Sadie’s symptoms were placated only by a series of harsh medications that left her bloated and sickly, stealing her quality of life.
When even these treatments started to fail to show results, Sadie’s parents were presented the choice of giving Sadie a “hero pill” that would ultimately end her life. However, that was not an option Sadie’s parents were willing to take, and they labored to find something else. It is through this determination by her parents not to give up that Sadie has achieved what she has.
Sadie’s First Day of School
The first day of school is a milestone all kids should get to experience – but one that Sadie almost didn’t get to know. Just days after celebrating her 3rd birthday, Sadie started a new chapter in her life by enrolling in school.
She was dressed in her special customized “Off to School” shirt, made by her sister, and had plenty of grins for the camera as the family was eager to document her incredible achievement.
Sadie’s school is a special needs preschool attached to the Ramona Elementary School in San Diego. At the school, Sadie participates in a mix of therapy and educational programs designed to challenge her cognitive and physical abilities.
It’s now nearly three years since starting school, and Sadie continues to surpass expectations in her development every day.
Helping Similar Families in Need
Brian has since traveled to events around the country to discuss his family’s experience in hopes of offering comfort and education to families in similar situations to his own. By taking the stage to reveal his family’s struggles and achievements, Brian gives hope to those who need it most.
His dedication doesn’t stop there, however. Brian also serves as the Secretary/Treasurer for the Board of Directors of ECHO, a charitable organization with a mission to support those in need of cannabinoids.
