Australia: My Gardasil Survivor

By Kate, from Sydney

I am the fortunate one.
I am the Mother of a brilliant, intelligent, empathetic, and wise beyond her years young woman.
We live in Sydney, Australia, with her Dad, little brother, and little sister.
I will call her G.S.
As in Gardasil Survivor. 
Gardasil Survivor

Gardasil Survivor

Golden girl.
My first born.
Ridiculously talented.
Ridiculously wise.
Ridiculously beautiful inside and out.
Like all our children, ridiculously loved.
She remains so.
However now, she is ridiculously ill. 
G.S. is the type of person that everyone loves.
Pre-Gardasil, everyone celebrated her accomplishments with us.
Athletics champ.
Singing voice to die for.
The courage to sing a solo on the stage of the Sydney Opera House in front of a 600 strong choir.
She was just ten years old. 
School Captain in Primary School.
Primary School Dux.
The stuff we are lead to believe dream kids are made of.
More than I can even begin with here.
You get the picture. 
When G.S. was in her first year of High School, I gave my consent for her to receive the Gardasil vaccine.
I totally believed that I was protecting her.
I did not, however, research the side effects of this particular vaccine prior to giving my consent.
Put bluntly, I bought the hype. 
Hind sight screams at me daily. 
We now live with the consequences of that decision.
Worst of all, my daughter has been forced to endure what she now has to go through because of that decision.
The effects of toxicity.
The myelin depletion in her brain, made evident in the results of an MRI during her first hospital admission.
Cue the auto-immune disease diagnosis.
And then the P.A.N.D.A.S. one.
Welcome chronic depression into the mix.
Suicidal ideation.
Low blood pressure.
Muscle and joint pain.
EEGs to capture seizures.
Inability to eat and drink, or care to do anything.
Having to be constantly motivated to move, speak or participate in her own life.
Sleeping on a mattress outside her bedroom door at night to protect her from herself.
Hiding and locking up all knives and sharps for the very real fear of suicide.
Being too unwell to continue High School or complete H.S.C.
Feeling less than adequate because of it.
A revolving door of hospital admissions.
Fear, pain, anguish, guilt. 
There is so much more.
There continues to be so much more.
There is no magic bullet.
There is only on-going management, not cure.
We have been forced to accept a new brand of normal
Much of it is simply not easy.
We are, however, entirely committed to making our girl’s quality of life all that it should, and could be. 
We are four years post Gardasil now.
We continue with the battle.
Our G.S continues with her battles.
We have no choice. There are no options.
Every day.
There are so many other issues and concerns that I could outline here, but these are some that I hope you might consider.
Do inform yourself about the possible side effects in relation to the Gardasil vaccine.
Check out the product insert and look at the ingredients in the vaccine.
Weigh up the side effects very carefully.
Assess the general health of your child, and consider the impact of this vaccine in terms of your own child’s genetic predisposition which may or may not result in the manifestation of particular illnesses, syndromes or conditions.
Clearly understand that the Gardasil vaccine is affording it’s marketers a massive amount of monetary profit.
With no proven efficacy. 
The thing is, most parents that have given consent for the administration of this vaccine to their children are not crazy hippie, weirdoes, or ill-informed ant-vaxxers.
Be prepared for mainstream media and most doctors to characterize you that way should you refuse this vaccine.
Sadly, governments, and profit driven pharmaceutical companies would like to paint us in that way.
Because it is to their benefit.
It is also much easier, safer and convenient for us and them for everyone to go with the flow.
It is simply not the case.
It is simply untrue.
Do not be intimidated.
The co-incidence argument is also tiresome and unfounded.
What an incredibly hard lesson we have learned. 
If only I could turn back time.

    My heart breaks over and over reading your story! I am SO very sorry for what your precious daughter and you (and family) have been going through! ….all b/c we trusted our medical profession to protect them! Our daughter is 3 years in as well and she had very little high school and will not be graduating with a diploma with her peers. It is so devastating to watch our girl’s normal lives be ‘stolen’ from them! Just caring for them and helping them day by day, sometimes hour by hour is a full-time job (one that I would never complain about – but one that should never have ‘been’ had we been given the truth to begin with). Has your daughter been diagnosed with POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome)as well? She has symptoms that seem to fit – especially the auto-immune disease. There are trial and error meds for that that could help show improvements. We are just at the diagnosis stage with our daughter, and again ‘no cure’ but we are hopeful for ‘any’ improvement!! I will pray for you and your daughter to remain strong and that some treatment out there to provide at least some improvement will find its way to you!! ((hugs!!))) Glenda (from Ontario, Canada)

  3. Dear mother Kate,
    Your beautifully poetic description of your daughter’s pain and struggling caused by this vaccine truly pulls at the heartstrings of thousands.
    Tragically, your words tell a similar sad story experienced by countless others who are in despair and who were also in good health before the vaccine.
    Thank you Kate. With your heartfelt words you are helping to warn thousands across the world about the dangers of this scandalous vaccine.
    Your message will be spread across the world. That is a promise.
    Blessings to your daughter and praying for her complete recovery.

    I live in the United States. While you live in a country I’ve never seen, I feel like you could be my next door neighbor. I am a GS mother too. The parent’s of the Gardasil injured find themselves embroiled in a daily battle to recover their lost child and many times, feel so alone. It is hard to explain the daily struggles to others. Often, the Gardasil injured to not appear sick. Your GS story is tragic and heart-breaking and like so many others, so similar to our own daughter’s story. Your writing is eloquent and filled with love — it was very moving to me. I intend to share it with others so they may truly understand what many of the Gardasil victims and their families struggle with everyday. Thank you for sharing your story with such an open heart. Prayers for a full recovery for your GS and for every GS!

  5. my heart is crying for you now…

  6. Kate,

    Are you detoxing your GS?
    Or, just as that part of your article “the results of an MRI” is implying,
    are you having modern medicine’s doctors helping her?
    The latter will prolong your GS’s recovery, I guarantee sadly.

    How can I detox my son/daughter from this vaccine? – HEAVY METAL TOXINS – Reply to a father of an HPVV victim

  7. The Ultimate Detox
    In 1997 I started a Research and Development Co Q Tech Laboratories in Australia. We invented several HEALING devices based upon Tesla’s Field Science, not Einsteins particle science.
    With Field Science one determines the outcome by choice not testing after mixing of chemicals. In 2000 we had sold several 100 units in USA and so we held a few expositions and even lectured at a medical conference in Mexico. (Land of free alternative medicine) While in LA, at a small convention we were introduced to the first case of Autism our device had treated. This 6 year old boy was Autistic after a vaccination at 2 years of age where before he was quite normal.(it may not have been related but….) For the preceding 4 years he didn’t talk, or eat or play, he ate through a straw and sat on the floor and acted quite retarded. (sound familiar?)
    His father purchased one of our devices for his wife who was debilitated with arthritis where he was more than happy with its results so they began using it on their child. When i arrived there some 5 months after treatment had began, this child was singing, laughing, talking in 2 languages and attending normal schooling. Can you imagine the expression of happiness this family had for our inventiveness? This is but one of 10,000’s of stories that this Healing device has given testimonials too. Over 20,000 units have been sold world wide. It isnt mainstream because it basically makes obsolete everything the FDA or TGA promotes and no university will clinical trial it as they would lose all their existing customers for clinical trials. One unit was sent to A lady Dr in Guadalajara where she used it on all her female patients and after 6 months she noticed those with HPV (genital warts) the warts were dropping off. So this device makes the Gardasil vaccine obsolete as she testified to at the Medical conference she and we attended.
    Today this device is marketed as the Q energy Spa or Aqua Chi. The Science of which can be understood at
    You can complain and write heart wrenching stories like the above or you can promote an alternative and understand a better way. The choice is yours. Lynn Eykamp joecell at bigpond dot com

    • Thank you for these posts. I thought to share My daughter Shawn had the shots in 2008/2009. She was in the hospital 20 days later. She was not a minor so I was not aware, but after extensive study to find the real cause of her deformity and other health problems just didn’t sound right to me I asked her did you take gardasil. Yes was her response. I said well I don’t need to research anymore. I am doing everything I can to return her to the once very normal healthy girl she was. She has crippling effects. She has had to alter her work and life style. Her diet is very restricted. Merck should have notified all health professionals when the lawsuit occurred to look for certain signs of possible gardasil poisoning or side effect. My daughter wasn’t even informed of the vaccine court pay outs. She said she never related the two and neither did any doctor or hospital experience. I am happy she hasn’t died from this drug push on our children. She is well loved by her students, friends, employers and of course her mother. She still has a way to go, but if we can regain even 80% we are getting ahead. I reported to Merck. I am looking through all of her records. She is connecting everything in occurrence from each shot. I am sending a letter to everyone and anyone possible for resolve legal to change the limits of suit regarding gardasil. As a mother I am heart broken to know this happened to her. I am also concerned for other victims. If a gardasil recipient was a president’s daughter, congress or assembly daughter, merck’s daughter, Bill Gates daughter you can be sure laws would protect the victim and legal suit would be life long due to the nature of the side effects.

    Your story moved me to tears and beyond. I will share this for awareness! I am a GS mom too, and we have been in this battle for 2 years and 4 months now. Our stories are very similar down to PANDAS/PANS and seizures. I am so sorry that you, your daughter, and your family are going through this hell. We recently had EEG / Video run for 3 days at Yale in CT, USA….the seizures do not show on the EEG’s…..did GS’s sow up? We were told, psychogenic….I know it is the Gardasil…we all know it is the Gardasil. I will keep you and your family in my prayers for healing. I know your story, honest and powerfully written, will touch people!
