Grapevine girl heads west, hoping marijuana will ease her pain

Grace Lummus-Nickell is 10 years old and has lived most of her life in pain.

She was born with McCune-Albright syndrome, a debilitating bone disease that has resulted in Grace having 10 surgeries, including the insertion of three titanium rods in her right leg.

The pain medicine she takes tends to make her sick and feel worse, she and her mother, Suezanne Lummus, said.
