Alexander's story, as told by his mother, Jennifer, and reprinted below, was first published at Stop Mandatory Vaccination. Jennifer shares not only Alexander's vaccine injury story, but also their long and painful ordeal with the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, which ultimately ruled that Alexander's death was caused by the vaccines he received.
February 17, 2005 - May 11, 2005
“My son, Alexander, suffered a seizure and cardiac arrest on April 29, 2005, three and a half days after receiving his first set of vaccines.The vaccines he received were the DTaP, HiB and Hepatitis B combo (Comvax), inactivated polio, and Prevnar. He coded, but was revived and placed on life support, however, the damage to his brain was catastrophic. After 12 days in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), and two independent determinations of brain death, we removed life support on May 11, 2005. He was only 12 weeks old. He was born on February 17, 2005 and was a healthy little boy. Despite that, he died as a result of seizure and encephalopathy that resulted from his two-month vaccinations on April 25, 2005.
As outlined in the CDC's Increasing Awareness and Uptake of Influenza Immunization/Recipe for Fostering Public Interest and High Vaccine Demand "creating concern, anxiety and worry" with the help of medical experts, public health authorities and the media, is an integral part of an aggressive campaign to scare people into getting the flu vaccine. We've all probably heard, read or watched "scary" news reports about how deadly the flu is this year and why you should get a flu shot. What they often fail to mention is that most, if not all, of the victims had received the flu shot and/or were treated with flu drugs; and that there are more vaccine injury claims related to the flu vaccine than any other vaccine.
Take steps to promote optimum health and prevent flu naturally; and before you rush out to get a flu vaccine, which even mainstream sources admit is only 10% effective; or take a drug like Tamiflu, do your homework. Simply "trusting" your doctor or one-sided fear based media reports is not enough. Use the resources at the end of this post to help make sure you are making an informed decision and not one based on irrational fear.

Recipe for Fostering Public Interest and High Vaccine Demand
In the brief video clip below, Del Bigtree exposes what happened when members of the HighWire team went on a field trip to hospitals mentioned in a January 16, 2018 L. A. Times article, "California hospitals face a 'war zone' of flu patients — and are setting up tents to treat them." After watching, perhaps you'll agree that things might not be quite as scary as we are being led to believe.
It is always painful to learn of another child lost to vaccines; and another family left to live with grief and regret. Owen was just two months old when he received eight vaccines. He passed away 48 hours later. Owen's death, like so many of the children on the "We Remember" page of this website was ruled as Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
Click here to read Owen's story, as told by his mother, Jeanee; and please say a prayer for Jeanee, Owen's dad, sisters and family. As I read the comment section that followed Owen's story, I learned of two more children who died shortly after receiving vaccines -- Stephen who died at three months and Corey who died in 1995 at six months. Both cases were ruled as SIDS. Please urge parents and expectant parents to research vaccines thoroughly before allowing anything to be injected into their precious children.
“I wanted to share my story because my hope is that no one else has to experience the pain in my heart every single day. My son, Owen Matthew Stokes, passed away October 25, 2017. He was born August 18, 2017 and was just two months old. He was born at term and weighed 8.8 lbs. Owen was perfectly healthy in every way. He did not receive the Hepatitis B shot at birth. Even in my pro-vax mindset, I did not see the need at that time to give that to a newborn. He did receive Vitamin K at birth, but I didn’t know anything about Vitamin K at that time."
Many thanks to Owen's mother for telling her story in an effort to protect others from the heartbreak that she and Owen's father now live with; and thanks, also, to Melissa Curtin and the team at Stop Mandatory Vaccines for sharing Owen's story.

I had a hard time writing in 2017...
It was this persistent feeling of having to "wordsmith" each and every post. An unrelenting feeling of pushing back what I really wanted....and needed to write about. As time went on it became impossible and the words stopped coming.
I mean, this is my journey....my story, so why am I fudging my way through blogging it? I think I misinterpreted who my audience is, and what they "want" to hear. A couple months ago I heard a heartbreaking interview with a young couple who had recently lost their 20-month old son. It was her question that rocked my world...... It went something like this....."Why haven't I heard stories of other children before? If I would have heard their stories, I may have questioned it and made a different choice and he would still be here."
I need to apologize to this young couple. I need to tell them I'm sorry for being a coward. I haven't been brave enough. I feel as though I've lived two lifetimes with this sobering reality. I've learned so much about Olivia's situation and am passionate to put my pen to paper, but in order to move in that direction, I need to explain an important truth.
My last three blog posts -- here, here and here -- were about Professor Chris Exley's recent study on the link between aluminum adjuvants in vaccines and autism. Since then, another very important study, co-authored by Exley, Critical analysis of reference studies on the toxicokinetics of aluminum-based adjuvants has been published in Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry. A copy of the Accepted Manuscript can be read here.
The team at Informed Consent Action Network has put together a brief video about studies that link aluminum & autism. Watch below.
“...any vaccine that includes aluminum adjuvant, you will get aluminum from that going into your brain...It is no longer safe to use aluminum in vaccination."
Professor Chris Exley ~ November 27, 2017
Professor Chris Exley, Keele University, UK
So I am prudent; and I only put my neck on the guillotine when it’s absolutely necessary; and that is now.”
As promised in my prior post, below is a video of Professor Chris Exley presenting the findings of his recent study, "Aluminium in brain tissue in autism" to a French audience. A transcript is also included.
Although Dr. Exley's findings are new, we now have scientific proof that it was never safe to use aluminium in vaccinations. Parents of children who have developed autism or experienced other serious injuries and even death following vaccines; as well as some courageous physicians and scientists, have been speaking out about the harm that vaccines can and do cause for many years. Not only have their stories and findings been ignored; but they are often degraded, discredited and humiliated.
When someone as knowledgeable and well respected as Professor Exley, who has been studying aluminium for over 30 years, can be "shocked" by new findings; change his opinion about the safety of aluminium adjuvants in vaccines; and humbly and courageously put his career on the line to tell the world; perhaps then those who cling to the belief that "vaccines are safe and effective" and "the science is settled" and have even been less than kind to those who question vaccine safety; should be equally humble and rethink their stance.
Thank you Professor Chris Exley and your team of researchers; and many thanks to the families whose deceased children made these findings possible. May God bless and take care of all of you.
Below is a full transcript of the above video -- Professor Chris Exley discussing his study, "Aluminum in brain tissue in autism".
"So we need now to be extremely careful and cautious about when we decide to use a vaccine which has an aluminium adjuvant. It worries me enormously to see these data and I was not, I was not worried before we had these data."
Professor Chris Exley, November 2017
In the video below, Professor Chris Exley discusses his recent study, "Aluminum in brain tissue in autism" which I wrote about in my last post. (A full transcript is also provided.) Additional comments from Professor Exley and a Q&A will be shared in Part 2.
With autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) in American children now at 1 in 36, Professor Exley's findings are more relevant than ever. You probably won't hear about these findings in mainstream media; therefore, it's up to us to share this information with parents and grandparents, especially those who are still vaccinating their children with aluminum containing vaccines and the newborn Vitamin K shot. It is also very important to share this information with physicians, especially pediatricians who administer vaccines. Your efforts just might protect a child from a diagnosis of autism and a family from a lifetime of heartache.
Below is a full transcript of the above video -- Professor Chris Exley discussing his study, "Aluminum in brain tissue in autism".
Dear Parents and Grandparents...Before you permit another aluminum containing vaccine* to be injected into your child, please watch the videos below and read a new study by Christopher Exley, PhD and colleagues, "Aluminium in brain tissue in autism" published online on November 26, 2017 in Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology. Read the abstract and download the full text here.
"Perhaps there is something within the genetic make-up of specific individuals which predisposes them to accumulate and retain aluminium in their brain, as is similarly suggested for individuals with familial Alzheimer’s disease. The new evidence strongly suggests that aluminium is entering the brain in ASD via pro-inflammatory cells which have become loaded up with aluminium in the blood and/or lymph, much as has been demonstrated for monocytes at injection sites for vaccines including aluminium adjuvants. Perhaps we now have the putative link between vaccination and ASD, the link being the inclusion of an aluminium adjuvant in the vaccine." - Professor Chris Exley
I highly recommend that you watch this brief video from, Forrest Maready of "My Incredible Opinion" who explains the new aluminum/autism study in a very clear and simple way. More very informative "My Incredible Opinion" vaccine related videos can be found here.
"As an anti-vaxxer, I take no pleasure in this study. It confirms my worse fears. There will be no gloating or finger-pointing at anyone. If you are someone who has insisted all along that vaccines had nothing to do with autism, then I want you to understand that this is a new study. This is new information. No one has looked at this before. Us anti-vaxxers thought science might find aluminum but we had no idea it was this bad. You are completely excused for your previous beliefs. If you cannot change your mind now, I don't think you ever will. And that is my incredible opinion" - Forrest Maready
It's doubtful that you'll hear about this study in the pharmaceutical industry controlled mainstream media; and chances are, your pediatrician is not aware of it either; so simply trusting your doctor, who is probably trusting the CDC, who as J.B. Handley points out in the following video, cherry picks studies that support their vaccine agenda, is not enough! Read, watch listen, learn and share this post with others, especially those who are still vaccinating their children.
Many pregnant mothers, and fathers too, become intimidated by their obstetricians and agree to vaccines during pregnancy, even when their gut instinct is telling them not too. It is very important to understand that doctors who recommend vaccines are "following orders" and doing as they are told by the CDC and medical associations who also follow CDC recommendations. As doctors have shared, they do not study vaccines in medial school and relatively few do independent vaccine research after medical school. I have witnessed expectant parents who were considering vaccines during pregnancy decide against it, simply after reading the vaccine package insert. (See a sampling of excerpts from package inserts at end of this post.) For mom's and baby's health, it is incredibly important that expectant parents educate themselves about vaccine risks before agreeing to any vaccines. It's the responsible thing to do. Simply "trusting" your doctor is not enough.
The following information and video are from World Mercury Project.
The CDC recommends that pregnant women receive flu and TDaP vaccines even though vaccine package inserts state that "safety and effectiveness have not been established in pregnant women." Mothers are reporting miscarriage, pre-term labor and health issues for themselves and their children following these vaccines. A recent CDC study found that pregnant women vaccinated with the influenza vaccine had two times greater odds of miscarrying their babies compared to women who did not receive the flu vaccine
Cathy Isaacs was pregnant with twins when, against her better judgement, her doctor convinced her to get a flu vaccine. Within hours of receiving the vaccine Cathy began to miscarry. She lost her son. Her daughter was vaccine-injured and subsequently diagnosed with Autism. Listen as Cathy tells her story in the video below.
"You have a situation in America where you've got forced vaccination; you've got no, almost no medical exemptions; a threat to the other exemptions -- religious and conscience -- that we've been holding the line on so far; and you've got no liability on the part of anybody involved in the vaccination process. So when somebody gets hurt, they're on their own because two out of three people are turned away from the federal vaccine injury compensation program, why...because the DHHS and justice do not want to admit how many people are being harmed by vaccines. They consider every award in that compensation program to be an admission that vaccines can do that...We're nearing four billion dollars of compensation, but that's only a tip of the iceberg because they turn most people away...They turn two thirds away...and almost no child is being compensated. They're compensating adults who are injured by the flu vaccine but they don't want to admit that children are being hurt."

This week from November 5-11, 2017 Mercola.com and the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) are co-sponsoring the Eighth Annual Vaccine Awareness Week (VAW), a week dedicated to raising awareness about vaccines and informed consent rights. With all the uncertainty surrounding the risks and failures of vaccines, it's critical to protect your legal right to make independent health choices and exercise voluntary informed consent to vaccination. It is urgent that everyone stand up and fight to protect flexible medical, religious and conscientious belief vaccine exemptions and expand informed consent protections in state public health and employment laws.
Watch the video below to hear NVIC's Barbara Loe Fisher and Dr. Joe Mercola discuss what is at stake in America's Vaccine Culture War.
