"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.

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.

"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?"

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...

I recently shared a powerful post entitled, "To The Doctor That Injured My Twin Boys." The following "To The Doctor..." letter is from the mother of three children, including a vaccine injured son. You may recognize Hillary's name from her powerful "Just a bunch of crazy mothers" soliloquy. Thank you Hillary for permission to share and for all you do to spread vaccine truth and protect other children and families from the harm and heartache that vaccines can and do cause. God bless and take care...
To The Doctor That Injured My Child
by Hillary Simpson
To The Doctor That Injured My Child:
I’m sure you don’t remember me but I will never be able to forget you.
I vividly remember your kind eyes and gentle touch, your sense of humor and calm energy. I remember the tiny toy duck that you always had with you. The one you would slather with hand sanitizer every time you walked into our room.
I connected with you as a fellow mother and felt like you had my child’s best interest at heart. I knew I had made the right decision by choosing you as our pediatrician and I felt lucky since you were in high demand at one of the nation’s top hospitals.
I figured that I had won the Doctor Lottery and eagerly scheduled our well-baby checkups anticipating our conversation. You were always so nice.
And then I started to question vaccines.
J. B. Handley's new book, "How To End the Autism Epidemic" has created quite a stir in the vaccine truth movement. Here's a brief synopsis from the book's publisher, Chelsea Green Publishing...
"In How to End the Autism Epidemic, Generation Rescue’s co-founder J.B. Handley offers a compelling, science-based explanation of what’s causing the autism epidemic, the lies that enable its perpetuation, and the steps we must take as parents and as a society in order to end it...Handley confronts and dismantles the most common lies about vaccines and autism. He then lays out, in detail, what the truth actually is: new published science links the aluminium adjuvant used in vaccines to immune activation events in the brains of infants, triggering autism; and there is a clear legal basis for the statement that vaccines cause autism, including previously undisclosed depositions of prominent autism scientists under oath." - Chelsea Green Publishing
On the September 20th episode of The HighWire, host Del Bigtree interviewed J.B. Handley, Jenny McCarthy, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Rolf Hazlehurst, a Tennessee Assistant District Attorney and father of a vaccine injured autistic son who was denied compensation in the Omnibus Autism Proceeding (OAP). Del and guests discuss J.B.'s book; review the details of the Omnibus hearings and the fraud perpetrated by Department of Justice lawyers that resulted in the denial of compensation to more than 5,500 families for their vaccine injured children; and closed the door to any further claims of vaccine induced autism. Listen to their powerful and eye-opening discussion below; and please share with others.

Below is a powerful message from the young mother of three beautiful children, including twin boys who were severely injured by vaccines. Sadly, stories like this are far too common. Thank you Alexandra for permission to share. God bless you and your beautiful family.
To The Doctor That Injured My Twin Boys
by Alexandra Simone
To The Doctor That Injured My Twin Boys:
I’m sure you don’t remember me but I will never be able to forget you.
I feel a little hesitant to blame you for their injuries because I know that it didn’t start with you. I know that it started in the womb. It started when I was pregnant with my boys in Okinawa, Japan while my husband was stationed there in the Marine Corps and the military hospital staff injected me with the TDaP and flu shot in my first trimester and injected me with RhoGAM in my third trimester. It continued when my boys were born as preemies at 34 weeks and how at 4lb 8oz my son, Noah, was injected with Vitamin K and Hep B upon entering the world while my son, Caleb - 4lb 5oz, was injected with Vitamin K and did not receive his Hep B until two weeks later. It is chilling to see how my Caleb is the one with some language while my Noah remains non-verbal and unheard. I know that their injuries began during the earliest, most fragile period of their development and because of it they struggled to thrive.
But mark my words and despite their early insults, they were born healthy, they were born strong. Two weeks in the NICU with our favorite nursing staff and we were out of there, headed home, and we started to meet all our milestones! My boys were not gone just yet… they still had a chance…
I still can’t blame you just yet…
I remember the day I prepared my boys for their 2-month wellness check-up and in the midst of the chaos of throwing together bottles and diapers to get there on time, my husband asks me if it is necessary for us to go to this appointment and maybe we should rethink their shots. He didn’t really want us to vaccinate the boys but I was furious that he would try to have this conversation with me as I am heading out the door to our doctor’s appointment. I couldn’t fathom how my husband could possibly know any better than my doctor! We had been together since I was 15 years old and now I was a 21 year old mom. There’s no way my husband could know better than my doctor. I shut him down so quickly before he could talk and ran out that door to get two more shots…
...and two more at 4 months…
...and two more at 6…
