Update on Shania “The Flyer” Mandurah, Western Australia

By Shania’s Mother

There is hope out there for those who have been severely injured following the HPV vaccine Gardasil. This is the story of Shania who has accomplished much since she was first struck down in 2009, read on …….

Shania: Gardasil Survivor

At the age of 12, Shania was already a 3 time State Champion Swimmer (3 years in a row in Butterfly, Freestyle and Backstroke) and was going for a 4th year when she was struck down by the Gardasil vaccine which ruined her life for the following 3 years and destroyed any chance of her having a swimming career.

If you’re familiar with the earlier story on Shania, you’ll know she had her first vaccine in about May/June 2009.  She reacted straight away, but coming into winter we just thought she’d picked up some cold or flu bug already.  Then after her second vaccine things got worse.  In August she collapsed at a swim meet in front of hundreds of witnesses and was unable to stand or walk. She had to be rushed to the local hospital where she spent the next 7 hours being tested, prodded and poked.  I remember one of the questions all the doctors asked was if she’d just had a vaccine… I didn’t know then what I know now and didn’t connect the two and so didn’t think to mention Gardasil.

In the ensuing months, Shania went through a variety of bizarre symptoms including “dead” arms and legs, muscle weakness, dizziness, fainting spells, brain fog, severe headaches, stomach cramps, her asthma came back in full force, blurred vision, no reflexes, aching and heavy limbs, feverish, extreme tiredness and lethargy, numbness, pins and needles, hair loss, racing heart and irregular heart beat, clumsiness, and a acne like rash that spread over the entire top of her body including the top of her legs and which has left her face scarred – resulting in being cruelly teased at school with kids calling her crater face and telling her she should go kill herself because she was so ugly!  Her friends dropped her – refusing to hang out with this strange sick person with the bad skin that attracted cruel taunts from others – it just wasn’t cool to be her friend! Yeah, with friends like those who needs enemies!

Well, you can read about it in the 2009 story. It is now 2012, everything Shania lived for and trained for leading up to Gardasil was aimed at reaching her dream of the Olympic Swim Team, or at least swimming for Australia.  Swimming was her passion. Even today she cannot participate or watch swimming on TV because it is too painful for her – that is how much it meant to her. She is still grieving. She couldn’t even watch the Olympics (not that she missed much this year!)

What she did do was throw herself into her other “love” – performing arts. Thank God she had something else she loved to do, but had not had the time to devote to it.  From 2010 onwards, time became something she had plenty of but she was limited in what she could do.

Over the past few years with doctors and experts scratching their heads and pretty much agreeing Gardasil looked like the culprit but proving it was going to be the problem (and we would need proof if we wanted to go to court, then we would have problems getting any experts or doctors to publicly stand up and say something because the power of the drug company would destroy their careers – as they have done to other Doctors who’ve spoken out about them). We ended up finding a natural health practitioner with offices in Melbourne and Sydney who was already helping local Gardasil victims.  She took hair and nail samples and provided us with a course of treatments over the next six months, which included a strong detox program initially, to try and get the poisons out of Shania’s system.

As the months went on, the severity of the symptoms seemed to lessen.  She took up drama classes one day a week after school – because she had enough energy to do that then.  (From training every day of the week morning and evening to having just enough energy to do one small training class once a week sounds ludicrous, but for a year she’d had no energy to do anything but lie down.)

Then she did a jazz class.  This really took it out of her and she still had issues with various symptoms including physical symptoms which made dancing more difficult for her than others.  But she persevered because she wanted to.  She gave it a year and then decided as she couldn’t keep up, she’d find a place that was more to her pace…

She had also had to quit singing because another side effect was trouble with her voice, but she persevered with that too because she loves singing.

Cutting the story short, today, 2012, Shania does a less demanding jazz ballet class and still attends a drama class once a week; she continues with her piano lessons and has just auditioned and been chosen by a well respected opera coach in the city.  She has won a vocal competition and been awarded an honorable mention from a recent performing arts festival and she has participated in a couple of shows.

We still can’t discuss swimming around her… but she is slowly moving on and looking forward to new dreams and goals now.  While her friend’s skins are breaking out, hers has finally cleared up – although scarred – and she has energy to go out with her friends and parties again as well as enjoy her out of school performing arts activities.  In fact, she has been quite active last year and this year.

Looking at her achievements, you wouldn’t think she’d been so sick.  Back in 2009, I used to worry some mornings whether I would go into her bedroom and find her still alive.  Today, August 2012, I know she has survived.  She only had 2 of the 3 injections, but I hope her story will give faith to others who wonder if there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  For some, yes… and we share our prayers with everyone else for the others.

    Thank you Shania’s mother for your update. My daughter Savannah has been sick for 10 months now following her 2nd Gardasil vaccination. Her love was soccer. She is just now realizing she just doesn’t have the strength to play. It has been heartbreaking for her. She will begin homebound instruction soon as she doesn’t have the strength to go to school anymore. She has chronic headaches, nausea, and fatigue just to name a few of her challenges, there are many more. We have begun a detoxification treatment plan with a naturepath here. We hope it works. I am glad your Shania is doing better and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. This thought gives us strength to keep on persevering and knowledge that we are trying the right things to get better someday. I am praying for you and Shania and all the girls (and now boys) who are inured (or worse) by Gardasil.

      Keep the faith and hang in there… it may take a few years but your daughter has a good chance of getting better… whether she will ever be at the level she was before GArdasil you won’t know until then… find other things to interest her in the meantime for just in case… I hope all works out well for her! xxx


    From its inception until the appearance of cervical carcinoma (UCC), takes on average 25 to 30 years, the research of this vaccine have begun in 2000, it is evident that the scientific efficacy of this new vaccine will be determined the years 2025 – 2030.
    HPV not causes definitely the (CCU); at the onset of this disease involves multiple risk factors, including the suspected HPV, but scientificaly is proven by epidemiology and statistics that the sex is what generates this disease .: Mix in 130.000 nuns found not any UCC.
    To accept that a virus or a bacteria causes a infection disease must unfailingly fulfill the five Koch’s postulate
    1 – The agent must be present in every case of the disease and absent from healthy.
    2 – The agent must not appear in other diseases.
    3 – The agent to be isolated in pure culture from disease lesions.
    4 – The agent of causing disease in a susceptible animal being inoculated.
    5 – The agent must again be isolated lesions in experimental animals.
    Consequently, HPV not fulfill not any principle of Koch’s postulate. by not meeting this postulate, that is accepted as dogma in medicine, scientifically we must be ensure that the HPV is not the causative agent to the UCC..
    Until August 2012 this vaccine produced only in the United States: 265.640 adverse events ( 264,162 females, 9490 males and 5290 unknow sex); permnent disability 8910( 8890 females, 90 males and 110 unknow sex), 1220 deaths (1011 females, 70 males and 140 unknow sex), abnormal PAP 4930, cervical dysplasia 1970 and cervical cancer 570
    The Vaccine efects advers reactions (VAERS) ensures that only complaint between 1% to 10% of the adverse effects produced by this evil vaccine;this figures shown are calculated according to the statements of the VAERS: to 10%.
    Dr. Harper, who contributed to the development of the vaccine by Merck, reports that the vaccine was not investigated in children under 15 years and the vaccine given to children under 11 years is a big public experiment.
    The vaccine was approved to give girls uncontaminated with HPV, Dr. Howenstinc ensures that the women are vaccinated with HPV contaminated, have the possibility to acquire a 44.6% CCU
    http://www.newswithviews.com / Howenstine/james170.htm.
    Merck did not disclose that the vaccine was transgenic, the Sane Vax has discovered, which is transgenic because it has been found that the vaccine is contaminated with DNA recombinant vaccine Gardasil (DNArPVH) and has raised its concerns to the president of the FDA Margaret Hamburg. The FDA replied that the vaccine will not cause any damage transgenic
    A vaccinated child was ill with rheumatoid arthritis, which is an autoimmune disease. 24 hours after vaccination and found that the aluminum adhered to DNArPVH, two years after vaccination and in autopsy 6 months after death in a New Zeland girl Jazmine Renata which had recibed this deadly vaccines
    Management time to get market approval of a drug the FDA is at least three years, it is a drug for cancer 15 years, but the authorization Merck had only six months and the European Medicines Agency (EMA in English) only 9 months: To introduce the vaccine are using the marketing of fear

    HPV is ubiquitous; lives in wild and domestic animals, pollute us from birth, is on the doorknobs, on towels, on nails, on fomites, in gloves and specula of gynecologists,. sexual intercourse is not the only means of contamination.
    HPV also lives in the 400 nm outermost of our skin and mucous membranes. ,
    If you live in our skin, our immune system produces cellular and humoral immunity is acquired or that our body is self vaccinatinge by PVHs living on our skin and mucous ..
    The PVHs is not distributed uniformly worldwide. It has been found that in Canada HPV 18 only reaches 3%; is more often HPV 31, in my country Peru no studies have determined that HPV types predominate; Gardasil contains 225 mcg. aluminum and Cervarix 500 mcg, that produce the Alzheimer, Parkinson and autism, produce too neurotoxic and immune system disorders (Blaylock 2012) and Polisorbato 80, a powerful contraceptive, that in experimental animals produces sterility, atrophy of the testicles and disturbance organic and funtional of the organs of the reproduction; is carcinogenic and mutagenic; also contains sodium borate considered poison unused in medicinal preparations (NLM)

    Have been discovered to date 200 types of HPV; HPV is not infectious, contagious; the intercourse is not only that the persons is contaminated
    http://quimicaclinicauv.blogspot.com/2006/08/virus-del-papiloma-humano.html http://www-lab.biomedicas.unam.mx/smpv/queeshpv.htm
    On 22-11-2010 FDA approved Gardasil for males aged 9 to 26 to prevent warts and cancer to the anus, is overkill
    For this reasons from deep Peru Huancayo, I believe that this vaccine is a fraud?, robbery?, swindle?, rough joke?.
    The HPV is not scientifically proved for the moment that produce the UCC its effectiveness shall be verified just the years of 2025-2030.

    Hello, my name is Kathy and I am in the USA. I have read your story about your condition. I have left this similar post to the woman writing about her daughter and the other about the family. I have read many other similar stories as well, vaccinations causing devastating symptoms, even unto death. I am currently dealing with my mother in-law who is in critical condition after having the flu-influenza shot. Her kidneys are shutting down and has a severe case of pneumonia. People do not realize that the world gov. does not test any of these drugs correctly, but it may be a way to depopulate the world..?? All shots have small amounts of toxins in them, such as aluminum and mercury and more. These toxins can not expel from the body, but settle in the organs and brain. So I believe there are 2 things that can help, as they have helped many here suffering from lyme, lupus and MS and much more. Please go to: http://www.healingnaturally.info to learn more. Remember first you need to detoxify the system from all toxins, and at the same time be taking something to pick up the immune system. Both of these are explained at the website. Any questions please click on the contact in the site. Good Luck and God Bless
