Fifteen-year-old Caitlin Grace is my hero. Once a green belt in karate, walking over ten miles per day, she is now physically debilitated from a vaccine that was supposed to prevent her from getting cancer. This is her story.
Caitlin received the full series of three Gardasil shots between September 2012 and July 2013. In hindsight, I should have trusted my mother’s intuition and not allowed Caitlin to receive the vaccine. When I asked her pediatrician of ten years if he would give it to his own daughter, he said that he definitely would. I trusted him and we gave her the full series. I live with the guilt to this day.
In February 2013, my healthy, active, academically gifted daughter received the 2nd of three recommended HPV-4 (Gardasil) injections. Within a week, she developed cold symptoms and a barking cough. I did not think it was related to the vaccine. How could a vaccine cause a cold? She went on to develop repeated lung spasms.
After her third injection, she experienced dizzy spells, loss of balance, weakness, anxiety, ear pain, abdominal pain, and nausea. I was never an “anti-vaxxer” (if I were, I wouldn’t have agreed to the HPV vaccine) so. I never even associated her new symptoms with Gardasil.
Caitlin began her freshman year of high school like any other teenager, attending school at the same high school where I teach. Now, as she enters her junior year of high school, she has physically attended school no more than 2 months. In December 2014, her freshman year, our life imploded.
After being diagnosed with a simple sinus infection, Caitlin was prescribed a “z—pack” – which she’d had many times before with no problems. This time, within 15 minutes of taking her first dose, I was frantically working to keep her alive until the ambulance arrived. She was diagnosed with severe unexplained hypokalemia (life-threatening low potassium) and a cardiac condition called Prolonged QT interval. She was treated with IV potassium and magnesium then released.
She has not been the same since.
Can you imagine living every day not knowing if at any moment you will become paralyzed and in excruciating pain?
This is what Caitlin has lived with every day since December 12, 2014.
She will be talking, laughing, walking, when all of a sudden she loses control of her neck, upper body, and her legs give out. If she’s not in a safe place, she’ll fall or slump forward, making breathing difficult, if not impossible. She has been diagnosed with hypokalemic periodic paralysis but she has “outlying” symptoms that have not yet been explained by doctors.
These symptoms include:
- Autoimmune disorder
- Hair loss
- nerve damage (as per an EMG test)
- exercise intolerance
- heat/cold intolerance
- air hunger
- chest pain
- abdominal pain
- nausea and vomiting
- brain fog
- allodynia (pain response from stimuli which does not normally cause pain)
- nystagmus (rapid involuntary eye movement)
- non-epileptic seizures
It was only when another mom contacted me via social media, asking, “Has your daughter had the Gardasil shot, by any chance?” that I began to put the pieces together. To be honest, I thought she was crazy at first. But I started reading the stories of other young people who have been injured by Gardasil. Their stories are so similar to Caitlin’s. Now, that same mother’s intuition which made me question her pediatrician before consenting to the Gardasil injections tells me that my child has been devastatingly injured by Gardasil.
Today, my brilliant daughter has bouts of brain fog and she can’t piece together thoughts.
My green belt daughter wears a transfer belt around her waist as I transfer her to her wheelchair. My social butterfly daughter treasures the few friends who have remained at her side through this nightmare. My independent young woman cries as she allows her mom to wash her hair and help her in and out of the shower, where she sits on a plastic chair. My once-invincible daughter asks me if she’s going to die.
For a long time, I was silent about the Gardasil connection to my child’s injury. I will not remain silent any longer. I don’t care if people consider me “one of those crazy anti-vax people.” I am this child’s mother and the vilest injustice has been perpetrated against her.
We will continue to hope that the next treatment will recover my brilliant, active, healthy daughter.
In the meantime, I remain grateful that I still have her to fight for when so many other mothers have lost their children to this tragedy. I will continue to tell Caitlin’s story.
Our children are not coincidences. This is personal.
In all these cases the victim of this vaccine is described as being active*. There needs to be an investigation of a link to sporting activity and training. People generally are unaware that exercise can lower immunity. Google exercise and immunity to see reports.
This may factor in sever reaction. Something if proved is still the fault of the pharmaceutical company.
*many are practicing sports people. Though the description can be both subjective and comparative to their present health and capacity.

Research has been done into this link. Several of the speakers at a symposium in Dublin in April talked about this. I am just going through the videos now and will be using the information in my new article about Gardasil. I will post a link to the videos later. For reference, my earlier article, written last year, is here: https://changingtimes.media/2017/10/12/australia-rolls-out-gardasil-9-amid-reports-that-hpv-vaccination-is-causing-death-injury-and-infertility/
Take her to a chiropractor if she has nerve damage. It’s amazing the results they can achieve
for seemingly unrelated conditions. This is a holistic treatment.
The cure to this new Disease of vaccine damage can be found at magneticwaterscience and then sending me an email….

Oh, please; stop trying to capitalize on someone’s tragedy with your bullsh*t “magic”.

Vaccines also injure our furry children. I had a cat go blind after he was vaccinated – his kidneys were also destroyed and I nursed him for a year before he passed away far, far to soon. After that I did a lot of research and found that vaccine preservatives and additives called “adjuvants” were very possible big time problem makers. Vaccines do not need these additives – they are there for the convenience and profit of the vaccine maker. We have to demand that the medical industry starts doing the right thing for people, and not their profits.
Eva Pick says
So sorry this has happened to your girl.
You have probably heard about the CEASE protocol already, I just want to let you know that the one time I tried it out it worked really well.
Definitely worth a go.
Best wishes, Eva
Because of these types of injuries from vaccines, is why big pharma and our government work hard to deny and bury these “real” cases and continue to push vaccines by making them a mandated medication that we all must take… For those who have awaken to the on going NAZI medical experiments lets wake up the others…
I am awfully sorry for your lovely Caitlin, and here again, I see more people trapped.
It was not a coincidence at all because Gardasil and/or Cervarix were designed to do this to many to begin with.
And yet, it seems that you’re making further mistake by keep believing in ‘modern medicine’ which is actually a very good BUSINESS. We were educated / misled to just trust them with no real scientific mind or evidence but with their manipulated reports (i.e. LIES) so that we’d follow them blindly like a religion.
Please read my comment on
Gardasil: Sharing the Carnage with Boys
when the admin of sanevax publishes it, and detox her.
I bet she will get well though it might take time, especially she might get some bad effects from any medication if she had taken any because “medicines are poisons.”
Susan Russo says
I believe you, and I’m so sorry your daughter has to go through this pain and suffering. Too much, is too much. We do not need all these vaccines. There are over 60 vaccines on the market, and the CDC want our children to receive all of them (why)? I’m in my late fifties and healthy, I have received three shots in my lifetime. Why has our son had a combination of 38 vaccines and has had health problems for years? Our son went through years of mystery Illness’s after being injected with his third MMR shot. We moved from Florida to MA, The doctors office never documented his shot record correctly, our son had his second MMR when he was six in Florida. To find out the state of Florida is on a different vaccine schedule, with the influx of foreigners. Who knew there were different shot schedules, evidently not the doctors or nurses in the state of MA? At the age of eleven we were at the doctors office for a physical for our son, we were told our son needed an MMR vaccine and couldn’t return to school after winter break if he didn’t have the MMR shot that day! I told the the doctors office he had the second vaccine at age 6, they said no way!. I was told that they were too busy this time of year to reschedule his physical for sports and not to come back with my paperwork. I was told an extra MMR (combination of three shots) would never harm him? It has changed his life. I have felt guilty from that day on, that I let my son down. From then, I have never trusted any ingredients in vaccines, and the people giving the shots, if they can’t take the vaccines themselves, dont give them too our children. below, please see the ingredients our children’s vaccines from the center of disease and control (CDC) http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pinkbook/downloads/appendices/B/excipient-table-2.pdf

Please try Chiropractic with your daughter. The power that made the body heals the body, allow the power to run freely through her body through chiropractic adjustments. Blessings to you and your family.
Has she been tested for MS? I have MS, and my symptoms are like hers, including the dangerously low levels of potassium and benign seizures. Her symptoms mimic it (I have MS). I know a 9yo with MS, so juvenile-onset MS is a real condition. I’m a pro-vaxxer, but I always understand there is always a chance of reaction – as in all medications, vaccines, and surgical procedures.
I have been very fortunate to have not seen these horrible vaccine symptoms among myself, my wife, or children. I believe it to be my family continuously praying for us and Jesus divine interventions. Blindly following orders (Military) “yea just give me the shot doc and lets get this over with so i can get back to work”, or trusting people like pediatricians and doctors because… well they are medically licenced and…doctors. No more, wake up people – we as Americans are the test subjects and soon it will be without a choice to even say no. My adivce to you, get her out of that hospital and start to let her detox and heal the way the human body has always done it for centeries… before vaccines even existed; all they are doing is continuously killing her, treating symptoms and not the root problem, which was the vaccine that started it all in the first place. John Bergan is spellbinding with needed information https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TzzMHfjMpgk and Sheri Tenpenny as well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TzzMHfjMpgk . But in the future, I will heed others warnings and learn from their mistakes.
Have you researched the connection between the HPV and Lyme Disease. Your daughter’s symptoms are consistent with Lyme.
Carter Mitchell says
One thing that is missing from this post and any of the comments is: SUE. The doctor, the pharma company, the school that required this before providing a service that you’ve already paid for with your taxes.
It may not be practical on an individual basis, but if enough victims could collaborate, it’s possible collective action could provide enough leverage to start making a difference.
At the very least, a well-organized social media campaign has the potential of reaching tens or hundreds of millions of people and shine a big, bright light on these unscrupulous companies and their lackeys in the government and educational institutions.
Our son received the vaccine, before we knew anything about this, as a requirement for attending high school. Fortunately he has not had (yet) any adverse events but who knows what long-term effects may be.
I’m so sorry to hear you’re story. Gardasil came to my attention recently and from the research I’ve seen scientists and doctors review on YouTube and listening to girls (and boys) stories on you tube through Vaxx and the stories on Sane vax, I feel it is criminal this vaccine is allowed to continue. India have pulled the vaccine due to the severe reactions they were seeing. There is no evidence this vaccine even prevents cervical cancer yet there is plenty of mounting evidence it causes severe and rare auto immune reactions not normally seen in teenage girls. I notice on the NHS website in the UK they do not put the gardasil patient information leaflet on there like they do for other vaccines nor do they have a section ‘how safe is this vaccine’ like they do for other vaccines, obviously because they can’t confidently say it’s safe so they omit it all together. Please if any researchers are reading this please research this vaccine to prove it is causing horrendous disabilities in young people. Please someone research girls and boys who’ve had gardasil and then their school attendance before and after gardasil. One common theme seems to be healthy active teenagers with good school attendance records then no longer being able to go to school and have long long and frequent absences. Please compare school absences over a same period to a control cohort of teenagers who haven’t had gardasil. Stats like this won’t lie. Let’s proove this vaccine is dangerous! Politicians wake up don’t cover up – stand up for the lives of these precious children!

I have suffered from 4.5 years of vaccine damage . Took me many treatment of various alternative treatments and finally I am well. I will help as many people as possible to get well.
