Sweet Andi passed away just two days after receiving her six month vaccines. Like many babies who have died shortly after vaccines, her death was classified as SIDS. This past July 7th -- the 9th anniversary of Andi's death -- her mother shared the following message on Facebook; and like other mothers (and fathers) who have lost a child to vaccines, Andi's mother shares their story to protect other children and families from the harm and heartache that vaccines can and do cause.
"In spite of my grief, the will of my heart is to remain open...Today is the anniversary of Andi’s death. Andromeda Grace Whitney, beautiful, perfect, loved...Please take a moment to educate yourself on vaccines, the possible adverse effects, the illnesses they are meant to protect against, and the treatment protocol for those illnesses. Then look further at the CDC list of who should NOT be vaccinated against those illnesses. If our pediatrician had taken a simple family history, we’d still have our child."
December 23, 2009 - July 7, 2010
"Her last vaccines were July 5, 2010. I could never remember the date of her vaccines, just that when the coroner asked, I told him she had just had them."
In 2018, Andi's mother shared their story on the Circle of Mamas website. It is shared here with her permission.
SIDS After 6 Month Vaccines
Today marks the 8th anniversary of our daughter’s death, following her six-month vaccines. Here’s our story.
We were blessed with a daughter when our son was five-years-old. She was beautiful -- a little doll. When she was born, she had a head full of black hair, and a wise look in her blue eyes. She was so loved. Not only by our immediate family, but at my school (26 children) as well as the Martial Arts studio, where my husband taught.
Our daughter was strong, just beginning to crawl, smart and opinionated. I remember thinking,“Here we go again!” Because her brother was spirited as well.
While I was pregnant, I received vaccines for dtap, flu, and swine flu. Our daughter was vaccinated according to schedule on time, every time. She died of SIDS following her 6-month well baby check up. She had her six-month shots two days before she died, July 5.
That morning, I woke before everyone in the family, to get ready for the day. She stirred for a moment, I settled her back down to sleep (she usually slept a bit longer in the mornings). I hauled the trash cans up our driveway, came back down to shower. When I came back to the room to change (15 minutes from when I left her), she was in bed, arched back, and not breathing.
I started CPR (my daughter was actually at my most recent CPR training with me), called to my husband, he took over as I called 9-1-1. The operator was reassuring as she was giving the instructions that we were already familiar with.
Take just six minutes to listen to this powerful, beautiful, heart wrenching true story about a mother and her son, as told by artist, Benny Wills. Please share.

Every July 4 since our nation declared independence in 1776, Americans have celebrated this truth:
“…that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” 1
The Declaration of Independence rejected unjust laws imposed by a privileged ruling class. The guiding principles of the Declaration of Independence were codified into the Bill of Rights to limit the power of government and protect our unalienable natural rights.
The First Amendment of the Constitution states that:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” 2

About two years ago I first read a post about Jayden that his mother, Michelle, shared on Facebook. Almost immediately, this sweet little boy and his devoted family worked their way into my heart; and I've wanted to compile a blog post about them for quite some time.
Like many other parents of severely vaccine injured children; when the conventional medical establishment gave them little hope or options for recovering Jayden; with relentless determination, in depth research and unwavering faith in God, Jayden's mom and dad found ways to recover their son. In addition to being Jayden's primary caregiver, while raising his very bright and busy older sister, and operating a home-based business, Michelle still finds time to keep her social media family updated on Jayden's progress and setbacks.
It is extremely disturbing that children and families like Jayden's; get ignored by pro-vaccine advocates and legislators who cling to the belief that vaccines are "safe and effective" and push for vaccine mandates and repeal of vaccine exemptions.
Thank you Michelle Marie and Dave for your inspiring faith; for sharing your sweet Jayden with all of us; and for speaking out to educate and protect others. The following post from Michelle, along with photos and videos summarize Jayden's story; and tell the very real truth that vaccines can and do cause serious harm and heartache. Read, watch and share and please keep Jayden, and all vaccine injured children and their families in your prayers.
"Every day I pray that more eyes will open to what is really going on in the world."
The following is a message from Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Children's Health Defense. Please take time to read and also listen to RFK's message in the video below.
Dear Friends Outraged by NYS’s Repeal of the Religious Exemption Right:
On Thursday, June 13, without even a hearing, the NYS legislature repealed the right to religious exemption from vaccination, and Governor Cuomo signed the measure into law calling the situation “a public health emergency.” In thirty days, all partially and unvaccinated children will officially be second-class citizens, unable to attend any school, public or private, or any camp.
This extraordinary, unprecedented action is a gross violation of children’s and families’ rights to religion, an education, parenting according to one’s conscience, and informed and voluntary consent to medical procedures. While New York State has an unquestionable interest in public health, that interest may not overwhelm all other fundamental rights. Legislation affecting constitutional rights must be carefully and thoughtfully balanced, something that was impossible in the legislature’s and Governor’s rush to ram through the repeal.
Children’s Health Defense (CHD) has been a leading advocate for children’s health and welfare for some time. It has devoted significant attention to the need for safer vaccines, as Congress called for in 1986 when it granted the pharmaceutical industry virtually blanket liability protection from vaccine injury. CHD supported intensive work to educate New York legislators on the need to preserve the religious exemption. Together with Robert Krakow and Patricia Finn, I represented plaintiffs in Brooklyn, NY to challenge a mandate overriding lawful religious exemptions.
I will challenge this repeal legislation in court. I am assembling a team of top flight attorneys to challenge this ill-conceived law on many grounds. While it is premature to spell out the CHD plan of attack, please know that I will help to bring the best legal talent available anywhere to overturn this unjust law.
You can help. Please contribute to CHD to challenge the NYS repeal. Doing so is not only essential for the 26,000 children in New York affected by this draconian measure, it is critical to the country. With California and New York having harsh, punitive laws in place, it is truly just a question of time before other states take a page out of New York’s book and ram through rights-stripping laws. We can fight this and win, but we need your help.
Thank you for your generosity.

Beau and his two siblings all suffered adverse effects from vaccines. Beau's injuries included unusual behavior, a limp, tics, his speech worsened, he lost vocabulary and his sentences didn't make sense. He became introverted and nervous. According to his mom, "He literally regressed over a three month span...It took me about two years to recover him."
Beau and his siblings no longer receive vaccines, and are doing much better. His Mom is now a strong vaccine risk awareness advocate; and as you will hear and read below, at not yet ten years old, so is Beau.

"This picture speaks volumes...Beau was very proud to stand with Bobby... he literally thinks that RFK is going to fix everything... a super hero in real time..
I’m so proud.. proud of how far Beau has come, and how far I think he will go.. he understands what’s happening right now when it comes to civil rights and the vaccination movement.. maybe Beau will grow up to #belikebobby."

"But You Can Call Me Bobby"
Many thanks to Beau's Mom, Mae; and to Beau
for permission to share this video and post!
Start video and make sure sound is on to hear Beau read his letter.
This is my youngest son Beau.. Every year the third graders are allowed to pick someone from the past, and write an Autobiography as a letter to another student in the class. Beau was assigned to Anne Frank.
Instead of choosing to be someone who is from our history..
Beau decided to choose someone that is
He chose Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
He chose Bobby because he wants people to know that he is one of the kids that Bobby fights for.
He wrote this letter all by himself.
Most students in the class probably wrote their letter in one 20-30 minute session at home.
This letter took Beau, NINE twenty minute sessions (to physically write...) over the course of two weeks. (This isn’t even the entire letter!)
He has to use a special type of paper to be able to write in a straight line...he also has issues with letters switching on him when he reads... sometimes even when he writes them down... they don’t look the way he sees them in his mind.
Beau worked really hard on this project... and I want everyone to see it.
I also want people to know: this is the same child that couldn’t count past 10, write his name, couldn’t even recite the alphabet at the age of 6. He was diagnosed with Auditory Processing Disorder, a language processing disorder, visual processing disorder -- and has an IEP still to this day:
BUT LOOK at my 9.5 yr old ~
Sure, he still has the awful anemic circles under his eyes.. and he has a lisp... and he can’t read without switching the letters around...his penmanship is improving...
But he is thriving.
The healing started for him once I realized how all his problems started.
I’m thankful to still have a choice in making his medical decisions.
We are not one size fits all.
I am the only thing standing between him and the dirty pharmaceutical companies- and I don’t plan on stepping aside.
Today is Beau’s day to shine.
PS. Lol I have no idea where he came up
with the “But you can call me Bobby.”

This year, the fear mongering about measles has reached epidemic proportions in America. A day doesn’t go by without media outlets publishing angry articles and editorials spewing hatred toward a tiny minority of parents with unvaccinated children, who are being blamed for measles outbreaks. 1 2 3 The remedy is always a call to track down, persecute and punish any parent whose child is not vaccinated. 4 5 6
Some state and federal lawmakers are reacting to the relentless fear mongering by proposing to severely restrict the medical vaccine exemption and eliminate all religious and conscientious belief exemptions in state vaccine laws. 7 8 9 10 These exemptions, which help prevent vaccine injuries and deaths, also protect parental rights, civil liberties and the ethical principle of informed consent to medical risk taking. 11

"That one family who was willing to tell me their story of vaccine injury likely changed the course of my entire life and the lives of my three children."
In 1996, when I was pregnant with my first child, I walked into church one day and saw a child and a family I had never seen there before. The little girl was wheelchair bound, had a trach, could not hold her own head up or clear her throat. I don't know that I'd ever seen a child in such a severe condition outside of a hospital
I remember introducing myself to the family and asking if they were open to explaining to me their little girl's diagnosis. I will never forget the mother looking at me and saying, "I can't really tell you but, my sister is right there. Ask her.
Her sister began to tell me about how this little girl had been a perfectly healthy baby right up until the day that she received her MMR at 12 months. Within hours, she developed a fever in excess of 108, began seizing, and ended up permanently and severely brain damaged. She explained to me that the family had been awarded a settlement through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. I knew that vaccines could cause reactions, but I had never heard of anything like this or seen with my own eyes such a tragic outcome. I was speechless.

It’s not “cool” to not vaccinate.
And not in the way you think I mean.
Socially and professionally, it’s suicide.
As the middle of five siblings all born between 1947 and 1957, I was lucky enough (we all were) to get natural measles and lifelong immunity. So did our cousins, friends, classmates, etc., and those of us who became mothers, passed on protection to our children for the first several months of life. When my early vaccine safety research started in 1988, I talked with my own mother, aunts, and friends' mothers to find out what it was like when we kids got measles, mumps, chickenpox, etc. Read more about that here, but basically they all said, "No big deal." A few years ago, I asked my then almost 90 year old aunt what she remembered about measles. She told me when she was young (one of ten children) and got "them", they put a measles quarantine sign on the house. They had to stay inside and no one could come in; but years later, when her own four kids got measles, she told me there was no sign. She laughed and said, "Measles? Never thought much about it. Just waited until they ran through the house and were finished!"
I know that there can be complications with measles. They're listed in five lines on page 1 of the vaccine package insert. However, if you turn to pages 3 through 8 of that same vaccine package insert, you'll find those same complications plus a whole lot more listed under vaccine contraindications, warnings, precautions and adverse reactions. In most cases with rest, good nutrition and adequate Vitamin A (Mom always made us take cod liver oil) measles is a fairly benign illness; and as a reward for your temporary discomfort and inconvenience, you'll have lifelong immunity. I hope the information below will help you put and keep measles in perspective. Read, watch, share; and if you've had a measles experience -- either as a child or more recently -- please post a comment sharing what it was like when measles "ran through your house."
