In this powerful Facebook video commentary, Kami Altenberg Schaal, a nurse of 22 years, shares her experience when four out of five members of her fully vaccinated family (including boosters and measured titers) came down with mumps. Kami did everything right, including reporting the outbreak to her health department who refused to inform her school district of her family's fully vaccinated status “because it could give the 'anti-vax' movement some fodder, some assistance.”
Kami experienced first hand the rude and ignorant comments that parents of vaccine injured children often endure from pro-vaccine advocates; and she urges those who might be quick to judge and point fingers to be kinder to those who have experienced vaccine injury and loss.
Thank you Kami Altenberg Schaal for having the courage and integrity to speak out. There is so much wisdom in your message. God bless you and your family.

I see your cartoons and your posts about people who are questioning vaccines. I was you, just a little over 3 years ago. I saw it as a black and white issue with no room for debate. I thought ugly thoughts and stated my opinion plainly. I thought I had read the science, which of course was me reading abstracts of a handful of industry-funded, cherry-picked studies that did not contain true inert placebos. I read the CNN articles. I looked at the CDC website. I knew what the WHO was. There was absolutely no possible way in my mind that getting vaccines involved any risk worth my consideration.
Then my beautiful daughter, Rosie, regressed into autism slowly, incrementally, and profoundly. I denied that vaccines played a role. I just couldn’t believe it. I didn’t want to believe it. After a significant decline following a flu shot, I asked the nurse, awkwardly…
“Rosie really tanked after her flu shot. I don’t want to be one of those people, but could there be something to that?”
The nurse took a deep breath, and very diplomatically said, “Vaccines create an immune response in the body and if her immune system was poor or struggling, it could affect her negatively.
Say what?! Enter doubt. Rosie’s immune system was terrible. During her short life she had already had many ear infections with multiple rounds of antibiotics. She had even contracted the rare Epiglottitis – two months before getting that flu shot. Epiglottis is “a rapidly progressive bacterial infection of the epiglottis and surrounding tissues that may lead to sudden respiratory obstruction and death” – something the HIB vaccine should have protected her from! Fail.

"Do you know why we are suddenly, and in such great numbers, stepping out of hiding, bearing the mockery, insults, wishes of death on us and our children??
(Yes, this is happening A LOT!) It’s because we can’t afford to remain silent any longer, there is TOO much at stake for ALL of us!"
by Angela Renee, BSN, RN
“It’s been too long I have stayed silent. It’s time to share my story. To speak the truth in love. My adult career as a Registered Nurse has been centered on the NICU, PICU, & Pediatric populations.
Growing up I had all my vaccines, the 11 or so we got back in 1984, seemingly uneffected and happily moving forward in life.
Fast forward to nursing school. I remember watching a short video, the CDC schedule & the importance of our patients receiving the full schedule. The denial of the autism link - and that’s it. We did not study ingredients, we were not told about vaccine injury/death, or how to report to VAERS when an injury occurred. One class quickly spoonfed. And we moved on.
Upon graduating and securing my first job in the NICU, I thought nothing of the injections I pushed into the thighs of my screaming newborn patients, nor of the “poor feeding,” lethargy, high-pitched screams, & breathing abnormalities that would sometimes follow. This was all normalized as common for the short period after vaccines. I questioned nothing as my own belly grew and grew with my own first child. I was a nurse after all, and this was science.
I drove to my son’s 2 month well visit and a voice inside told me, “Don’t do it. You need to research first. “ And I actually listened to my gut and declined. Me, the nurse who injected other people’s babies...I told my pediatrician I just wanted to wait a bit and do some more research. I was made to sign a form acknowledging that I was putting my child at risk. I left feeling shamed, but relieved that there was still time to decide. Shortly after I received a phone call from my nurse manager that upon returning to work from my maternity leave, I would be joining the float pool which would place me returning to work in a brand new orientation to the pediatric and PICU units.
Today, March 5, 2019 is the eight year anniversary of Mason Bundy's death. Mason died within days of receiving the DTaP vaccine after the pediatrician told his young parents that they would be "signing his death certificate" if they didn't agree to it.
Mason's Mom, Kari would like the following Facebook post shared far and wide. Like many parents who have lost a child to vaccines, the Bundy's speak out to protect other children and families from the harm and heartache that vaccines can and do cause.
Mason Forrest Bundy
October 22, 2010 - March 5, 2011
"He had all of his scheduled 'life saving vaccines' and it cost him his life."
by Kari Bundy...
This is the brutal reality of vaccine injury. THIS is as bad as it gets… Finding your child’s cold, dead body when you check on them in the night. Read through this thread from exactly 8 years ago on the night Mason died, and temporarily experience the HORROR we (and our friends and family) experienced that night. You will feel the hysteria as you witness our friends and family desperately praying and begging God to just PLEASE SAVE OUR BABY. And at 2:09am, I posted the heartbreaking update with just two words- He’s gone.
There are no treatment options for dead children. NOTHING can bring them back.
Chicken Pox, Measles, Pertussis, Influenza… These illnesses all have treatment options. A diagnosis does not indicate imminent death. Any of THESE THINGS could have been treated. My son would have had a CHANCE with ANY of these diseases.
But he didn’t contract a disease.
He had all of his scheduled “live saving vaccines”
And it cost him his life.
When vaccine risk awareness advocates speak out, pro-vaccine advocates, including mainstream media, are quick to call it "misinformation". Let me assure you, the information you are about to hear in the video below is NOT "misinformation". These are real moms with real stories. Watch, listen, learn the risks before it's too late, and please share.
"I was just like you...I trusted my doctor...I didn't research vaccine safety myself...Turns out my doctors didn't know...My pediatrician had no clue...and neither did I."
A heartfelt thank you to the moms in this powerful video and to Del Bigtree and the HighWire team for producing it.
God bless and take care of all mothers and fathers who speak out to protect children and families from the harm and heartache that vaccines can and do cause; and that they live with each day.
I give out cards with photos of two young children that died following vaccines. Beneath the photo of a beautiful 15 month old little girl who died within 24 hours of receiving 7 vaccines is a message from her mother, "I want you to do the research that I wish I had done." Beneath the photo of a precious little boy who died within two days of receiving his two month vaccines is a message from his mother, "Allow my pain to help you make a wise decision. I was ignorant. I thought, 'My child will be fine,' I was wrong." These parents, and many like them, live with not only grief, but with deep regret. Please encourage parents and grandparents to research vaccines carefully.
"So a healthy baby goes in for a well child check with a minor cold, receives multiple vaccines and is dead within hours but there is no possibility the vaccinations played any role in the infant’s sudden death?"
by Cammy Benton, MD
Published February 20, 2019 in The Vaccine Reaction
I watched every mother’s nightmare unfold yesterday in a conversation on a local online mom’s group. It began when the baby’s aunt asked frantically for prayers for her nephew, who had gotten his four-month shots that day and was found unresponsive in the evening. Then we learned the baby had apparently bled from every orifice and had swelling of the brain. The aunt shared that they kept the baby “alive” to give family time to arrive at the hospital. And then, the baby died.
The aunt told us the probable diagnosis was SIDS. When the family questioned the doctor about whether the vaccines (pneumococcal, H. influenza (HIB), rotavirus, diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus (DTaP) and polio, and perhaps hepatitis B if he had not yet received that at birth) administered just hours before could have caused this massive organ failure and death, the doctor denied the possibility of any causal relationship between the baby’s death and the vaccinations he was given. The doctor justified that conclusion on the basis of the infant not reacting poorly to the series of shots given at two months.

Sadly, stories like this one are not as rare as we re led to believe. Many are shared at "We Remember." Love and prayers for this family and for the many families who have lost a child to vaccines.
I have great respect for the many young mothers who refuse to accept when conventional medicine gives them few options and little hope for their vaccine injured autistic child. Instead, while caring for the child with special needs as well as their other children, they embark on a research journey that would earn them a PhD in a traditional academic setting. Not only do they find ways to improve their child's quality of life and in some cases heal the child from the diagnosis of autism, these intelligent, committed young women reach out and share what they have learned in an effort to protect other children and families from the harm and heartache that vaccines can and do cause.
The message below is from Natalie, the mother of four, written on behalf of her son, Landen, on his 10th birthday. In the video that follows, Natalie tells Landen's story and offers a heartfelt message to other parents.
Happy 10th Birthday Landen and thank you Natalie. Love and prayers to you both. God bless and take care...

Stanley Plotkin, MD, aka "The Godfather of Vaccines, is considered the world's leading authority on vaccines.
Originally published in 1988 and now in it's 7th edition, his book "Plotkin's Vaccines" is the standard textbook for vaccines; and has been called "the bible for vaccinologists" by pro vaccine advocate, Bill Gates. Following an introduction at the February 2017 meeting of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services National Vaccine Advisory Committee, Dr. Plotkin commented, "I hope you all have indeed have read the book, and I hope it's more accurate than the Bible." Listen to Dr. Plotkin make that statement here.
Dr. Plotkin is an atheist who has little tolerance for religious beliefs. He stands by his statement, “Vaccination is always under attack by religious zealots who believe that the will of God includes death and disease.”
The first video below, is a brief excerpt from a nine-hour deposition, in which Dr. Plotkin while under oath, details the use of aborted babies in vaccines. If you have read J. B. Handley's, "How To End the Autism Epidemic" you will be aware of this deposition conducted by attorney, Aaron Siri. In the second video (beginning at 0:29:54) from the January 17th episode of The HighWire, you'll hear several pro vaccine advocates praise Dr. Plotkin and get a sense of the "god-like" influence that Dr. Plotkin has over them. Perhaps the most revealing and disturbing comment about Dr Plotkin comes from Dr. Paul Offit who states, "He trained a generation just a generation of scientists, including myself, to think like he thinks."
Take just 11 minutes and watch "The Vaccine Debate" segment from the January 6, 2019 episode of Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson. Get someone else to watch it too. With the autism epidemic affecting 1 in 36 children, every mainstream media outlet should be covering this story, but with pharmaceutical industry sponsors, that's unlikely to happen. A heartfelt thank you to Sharyl Attkisson and her Full Measure team for having the courage to cover this story and to those featured in the story for having the courage to speak out.
"Today we investigate one of the biggest medical controversies of our time: vaccines... we have remarkable new information: a respected pro-vaccine medical expert used by the federal government to debunk the vaccine-autism link, says vaccines can cause autism after all. He claims he told that to government officials long ago, but they kept it secret."

"There are two sides to the story of vaccines. The predominant story told to us by government institutions and the mass media is that "vaccines are safe and effective." But are we really being told the whole story? In this course, we'll peel back the curtain and peer into the shadows as we examine vaccine safety and efficacy from a critical perspective."
- Luke Yamaguchi, The Dark Side of Vaccines -
Health educator, Luke Yamaguchi recently wrote an article entitled, "To Vaccinate or Not to Vaccinate" that offers interesting statistics you might want to consider when deciding whether or not to vaccinate. Luke talked about the article with Del Bigtree on the November 29th episode of The HighWire which you can watch below.
In addition to the article and a blog post entitled, "Vaccine Safety - An Appeal to Common Sense", Luke has compiled a free online course, "The Dark Side of Vaccines." Many thanks to Luke, who created the course "out of a sense of moral obligation" to share what he has learned about vaccines from his own independent research. The course is extremely well done. I urge you to take the course and share it with someone who has not considered the "other side" of the vaccine story. Offered in brief, comprehensive, well referenced segments, "The Dark Side of Vaccines" is ideal for those new to vaccine risk awareness and a great refresher for those of us who have been at it for a while.
Click here to watch a brief promo video for "The Dark Side of Vaccines" and to enroll in the course.
When asked what inspired Luke to write "To Vaccinate or Not to Vaccinate," Luke replied...
“I actually asked myself this question. What can I do to create greater health and wellness in our world? And one of the answers that came to me was researching vaccines. So I spent about three months earlier this year looking into vaccines and I learned that there is a whole lot more to this story than vaccines are, quote, safe and effective; and so part of what I’m trying to do with this article that I wrote in Medium is to get people to think critically about this issue and not just accept at face value the sound bites, the generic sound bites that we keep hearing over and over again in the mainstream news …”
Watch interview with Luke below. Segment begins at point 25:08.
Luke is a health educator and wellness consultant dedicated to creating greater well-being in our world through education and empowerment. He is the founder of GutResolution.com where he works with clients to unearth the root causes of their health challenges.
