Eli's Story . . . as told by his mother, Erin
Messages from Eli's Mom . . .
"October is Child and Infant loss month. It's also Vaccine Injury Awareness month. I don't think it's a coincidence that they are in the same month. I realized that not everyone knows mine and Eli's story. Please feel free to share this post. See, I didn't listen to my instincts. I let the doctor tell me what to do. And it cost me my child's life."
"Today (November 5, 2015) is Eli's birthday. "The boy who should've lived" would be six today. If you want to help remember him today, I ask that you do two things. First, please share his video. Second, please perform a random act of kindness in his memory."
"Since Eli's story has gone viral, I have received tons of messages. People asking questions about vaccines and where to find research. We are currently working on a page where people can discuss and find research. A page where we can educate people in a safe, tolerant environment. See, I truly believe Eli's Legacy is education. He was born into a family of teachers, generations of educators. Which makes his death even more ironic to me because vaccine education could have prevented it. But I do want to address one thing in the meantime. Eli's death is not rare. Tragic and heartbreaking, yes. Untimely and unfair, for sure. But not rare. There was a time I would have sworn it was. But I was wrong. And if you think his death is rare, so are you. Please educate yourself on both sides. Please use reputable sources. And please remember all of us with children injured or killed by vaccines were once pro-vaccine."
"I've been thinking about this the past few days. People keep referring to Eli's death as rare. And if you haven't researched vaccines I'm sure it seems rare. I truly think it is because the media never mentions vaccine injury. I'm sure you have seen the special ed teacher's resignation letter. Every major network covered her story when it went viral. She had 40,000 views when they shared it. And I have constantly seen the news share dumb animal videos with 100,000 views. Yet the video of Eli's story has over 200,000 views and no media coverage. The media is biased and probably doesn't want to offend their biggest sponsor, Big Pharma. Count tonight how many pharmaceutical commercials you see in one hour of network tv. That is why you think vaccines are safe. That is why you think Eli's death is rare. Open your eyes. You can call me crazy but the numbers don't lie. Over 200,000 views and nothing but silence doesn't lie. Stop letting the media brainwash you."
