Did Gardasil Kill Adriana, age 17?

By Guillaume Atchouel. Published in French newspaper La Dépêche, 8th April 2014. (Translation by Helen Kimball Brooke)

Adriana died at age 17.  Her parents blame the vaccine.

Adriana died at age 17.  Her parents blame the vaccine.

Is Gardasil, the cervical cancer vaccine, to blame for the death of Adriana Kolbecher, a teenager from the French Hautes-Pyrénées region who died on the 20th of October 2010?  Her parents think so even if so far, there is no proof.

The number of lawsuits against Gardasil, the cervical cancer vaccine administered to many young French girls every year, is on the rise.  An increasing number of doctors are also questioning its effectiveness on a daily basis and some of them are even suggesting that it could be dangerous.

Did Gardasil cause 17-year-old Adriana Kolbecher’s death on the 20th of August 2010 at Rangueil Hospital in Toulouse?  The diagnosis by doctors in the neurology department was “autoimmune encephalitis” but they were unable to explain why this teenager’s brain became so rapidly and violently inflamed.

Adriana’s parents are convinced that it was indeed Gardasil which “killed” their daughter.

One of the doctors wrote in his medical notes: “Possible cause: Gardasil” but a Rangueil neurologist advised them to be careful: “Gardasil being the cause is a hypothesis but we have no evidence to substantiate this” he explained.

Adriana’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Kolbecher, have nonetheless decided to take the manufacturer to court.

It was only after reading an article in the press reporting the “ordeal” of another teenage girl that they started to suspect Gardasil.

Sudden Aggravation

“Later, while surfing the net, it was confirmed to us by a large number of overwhelming testimonies”, explained her parents.  “It was shocking to read because some of the adverse effects described were very similar to what Adriana had experienced after her vaccination on the 24th of October 2008.”

Like most of these teens, sometime after the vaccination, Adriana started complaining of “headaches, tummy aches… nothing really out of the ordinary for a teenager but these complaints became gradually more pronounced after the second jab (19th December 2008)”, continued the parents: “anxiety, hot flushes, tingling in her legs, muscle pains, difficulty walking… until she had a major loss of consciousness on the 18th of April 2009.  After the third injection (24th April 2009), these adverse effects became intermittent and others appeared: total exhaustion, fainting, moodiness, loss of appetite…  Although Adriana had always played lots of sports, she no longer had the energy to do anything and couldn’t even go upstairs to bed on her own.”  One slightly distraught GP even advised them to consult…. a shrink.

At the end of July 2010, Adriana’s condition suddenly deteriorated: loss of weight, confusion, memory blanks, behavior problems….  “In early August 2010, she was hospitalized in three different hospitals and was finally put into an artificial coma, due to irreversible fits.  She never woke up from the coma”, report her parents.

Around 50 French youngsters claim to be Gardasil victims and their families have already filed lawsuits in the French courts.

Complaint of “Manslaughter”

Adriana Kolbecher’s parents decided to take her case to the courts.  As such, they will be filing a lawsuit for “manslaughter” this week.  This will be the first such case, since most of the others have been filed as “accidental damage to physical integrity and deteriorated deception”.  Fortunately, none of the other plaintiffs died.

André Dahlab, Medical Director of the Sanofi Pasteur MSD group who manufacture Gardasil replies that “the vaccine’s risk-benefit ratio has never been questioned but this is a difficult time for vaccines.”



  1. So very sad and outrageous. At the very least, doctors should be educated to monitor for adverse symptoms and discontinue the series if signs of adverse reactions are occurring. Passed out on 4/18 and revaccinated on 4/24 — negligent and insane!

  2. I am very sorry indeed for Mr. and Mrs. Kolbecher for their tragic loss of Adriana and praise their courage
    for their decision to sue the criminals. Also, thank you Helen for translation.

    I agree Gardasil killed Adriana but I’d say it was a combination of Gardasil along with more poisons
    they gave her at hospitals. Seems her symptoms were already really intense, but what you had to do
    was to detox her.

    How can I detox poisons from Human Papiloma Virus Vaccines? – Hidden crime of Heavy Metal Toxins

    But the majority of the victims, not only of this HPVV but all the vaccines they sell based on lies
    after lies, using our emotion and caring mind for their evil profit, still can’t realize the entire thing
    is a fraud. Vaccination/immunization fraud is deepy connected with the modern medicine fraud.

    We have to wake up to that link.
    They sell poison called ‘vaccines’ to us, emphasizing the tragedy of somebody’s death or illnesses.
    Yes, it happens but they use it to sell poisons which have been creating all kinds of weird diseases
    and symptoms over the years which we never heard of before, and people usually go back to their doctors
    if they become ill, that means they are creating their future customers as well.

    There, as my father (M.D.) kept questioning and told me repeatedly, modern medicine never deals with
    the cause of the problem, but tries to suppress the symptoms by using medicine which is poison.
    We were taught to think symptoms are “bad” while in truth, they are the signs that our bodies are fighting back.

    So, taking medication what suppresses symptoms can only lead our health get worse.

    Check what the doctors who saw Adriana gave her and check all the ingredients.
    It’s extremely sad this entire fraud system is still working full on.

    Everybody, who read this comment, please tell others what’s really happening for decades
    if not centuries. We’ve got to stop this unforgivable crime now!!

  3. Much, TOOO FREAKING MUCH, scum oversee medical science.

    “The Evidence Gap
    Drug Makers’ Push Leads to Cancer Vaccines’ Rise

    Published: August 19, 2008

    In two years, cervical cancer has gone from obscure killer confined mostly to poor nations to the West’s disease of the moment.

    “Merck lobbied every opinion leader, women’s group, medical society, politicians, and went directly to the people — it created a sense of panic that says you have to have this vaccine now.”

    DRUG MAKERS’ BIG PUSH A marketing campaign in the United States and Europe by Merck has made Gardasil, its cervical cancer vaccine, a best seller. Cervarix, a similar vaccine from GlaxoSmithKline, has also proved popular, and profitable.

    Tens of millions of girls and young women have been vaccinated against the disease in the United States and Europe in the two years since two vaccines were given government approval in many countries and, often, recommended for universal use among females ages 11 to 26.

    One of the vaccines, Gardasil, from Merck, is made available to the poorest girls in the country, up to age 18, at a potential cost to the United States government of more than $1 billion; proposals to mandate the vaccine for girls in middle schools have been offered in 24 states, and one will take effect in Virginia this fall. Even the normally stingy British National Health Service will start giving the other vaccine — Cervarix, from GlaxoSmithKline — to all 12-year-old girls at school this September.

    The lightning-fast transition from newly minted vaccine to must-have injection in the United States and Europe represents a triumph of what the manufacturers call education and their critics call marketing. The vaccines, which offer some protection against infection from sexually transmitted viruses, are far more expensive than earlier vaccines against other diseases — Gardasil’s list price is $360 for the three-dose series, and the total cost is typically $400 to nearly $1,000 with markup and office visits (and often only partially covered by health insurance). “

    Thank you for posing this.

  5. Concerned says:

    Polysorbates enhanced by boric acid have the capability to take the vaccine ingredients through the blood brain barrier,which means that an inflammatory process can start in the central nervous system.This would explain the auto-immune encephalitis.
