Darcy, from Austraila, was not quite two months old when he passed away, just one week after receiving his six week vaccines. He leaves behind his heartbroken mother and father and his little twin sister. The following is Darcy's story, in words and photos, as shared by his mother, Brooke.
21 January 2019 - 18 March 2019
Darcy is a twin to his little sister, Jada...
He was born premature at 35 weeks. Perfect and healthy. Here in Australia NSW, vaccines are to be given at 6 weeks not corrected age. Both my babies received their 6 week needles at 1 week corrected age.
After Darcy and his twin sister Jada had their needles, Darcy had come down with a fever. I was told by the doctor and nurse to give him some Panadol. I did, and everything was fine after that. He was back to his usual self in no time.
"Best friends...We miss you so much Darcy."
One week later on March 18, 2019, I woke up around 6am for Darcy’s feed time. Everything was fine...completely normal and his usual self. Darcy finished his bottle, nappy change, and burp and we both went back to sleep.
I then woke up around 10am to roll over and find my son pale, cold, milk stain around his mouth and a reddish bubble hanging out of one of his nostrils. I rubbed my eyes, thinking I was having a bad dream.
I started screaming and my partner woke up. I already knew and I felt sick struggling to catch a breath. I picked my son up and was screaming “Darcy, Darcy wake up” JUST WAKE UP..
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.
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."

"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.

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?"
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.
