Our healthy active funny daughter became just that! I share our story hoping our experience will save another from becoming “one less” healthy child.
Our fifteen year old daughter, Leah is vaccine injured. It all began March 30th 2011. Leah was 11 years old, soon to be 12. We had been referred to an Adolescent doctor so Leah could be placed on oral contraceptives to help prevent cysts from forming on her ovaries.
A month prior, February 20, 2011 Leah had an Oophorectomy losing her left ovary. We were told since we had just gone through this scary ordeal, in order to keep her healthy we needed to vaccinate with the Gardasil vaccine.
Trusting in doctors and believing what they recommend is best, I never questioned their belief that this was a “must” for Leah’s health. After all, Leah had received all her recommended vaccines prior to Gardasil. What could we possibly have to worry about?
First, I have to tell you Leah has a very high tolerance for pain. The only way I knew I needed to take her to the hospital in February was because she was clammy and dry heaving. The surgeon who performed the Oophorectomy came and told us after, that she should have been in excruciating pain.
She laughed when telling Leah, “I tells my kids to quit complaining all the time, but YOU need to complain and let us know when something is wrong in your body. You know your body best and when something is off let mom and dad know!”
Recovery went smooth and we then were released and referred to the adolescent doctor for all of Leah’s follow-up care.
March 30, Leah received the first shot in the Gardasil series from Lot number #1437z. After we left the paediatrician’s office Leah said she felt sick to her stomach. I thought due to being only 4 weeks post-op she was going to feel a little ill from the car ride. But, by the time we got home she was nauseous and bloated.
I called the doctor and was told it all stemmed back to the surgery. They had removed her left ovary, so she probably was having effects from the anaesthesia that was used during the surgery. We didn’t question the response and left it at that.
The following four months she continued to have severe abdominal pain, bloating, nausea and feeling full after just a few bites of food. I called again during this time and was told because of the removal of the left ovary she was just feeling her body adjust to what her insides were adapting to with more room. They assured me it was normal and there was no cause for concern.
August 8, 2011, Leah received her second Gardasil shot from lot number 1271z. We didn’t mention anything about her new medical conditions during this visit because they had already given an explanation over the phone to why she was experiencing these symptoms.
For the next four months Leah’s symptoms did not improve. Every time she ate she felt sick. She was always nauseous and her stomach was extremely bloated. I start researching her symptoms and then became worried it might be ovarian cancer. All of her new symptoms pointed in that direction. Never once did I feel it was the vaccine. Doctors were all guiding me back to the Oophorectomy.
December 12, 2011, Leah receives the third and final dose of the HPV vaccine series from Lot# 1261AA. By this appointment I was very concerned with Leah’s health. She had continued to have the severe abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, feeling full, headaches came and went, and she was not sleeping well.
In order to appease me, doctors told me they would do a cat scan to make sure her right ovary was all right. I asked them to do a blood test, CA125. This would measure the protein in the blood, detecting early signs of ovarian cancer. I was told that it would come back positive because she had just had the Oophorectomy. So it would not be accurate to do the testing.
I will be honest, I hadn’t researched to see how long it would take from the time of the surgery for her to keep testing positive, if it would at all? I did keep questioning them. Again, I trusted them and thought they knew best. After all, they have the degree, I don’t…..right??
Cat scan came back normal. Everything looked fine. We were told to hydrate and make sure she was moving her bowels. They changed the oral contraceptives thinking that would help relieve some of the symptoms.
All of 2012 Leah continued with the same symptoms. I kept telling her to push through because they said nothing was wrong. She is constantly coming to me with aches and pains, here and there…arms will hurt, legs hurt, feels funny. I ask my husband if we have made her a complainer since the surgery. I tell Leah she doesn’t have to tell me every time she hurts somewhere.
Looking back on this now, breaks my heart to think I ignored a lot of symptoms she was actually having. Like I said before, her pain tolerance is high, she wasn’t physically showing how bad the pain was or crying in pain, it was more of “matter of fact” so, I played it down instead of really listening.
The end of 2012 I take Leah to an actual OB/GYN. She had never stopped complaining with all of the symptoms from the last year. I was still scared and thinking it was Ovarian Cancer. This new doctor spoke with Leah and me and said she would order an MRI and double check that everything was okay. Leah to this date has never had an actual Pap screening concerning her cervix or uterus. MRI was normal and this doctor put her on yet another new contraceptive. Said a low oestrogen would help with the pain and the headaches.
During this whole time since her Oophorectomy, Leah has never had a normal cycle. She would bleed for maybe a day and it was always black blood. Of course they say this is normal and all due to the contraceptives; always assuring me that everything is fine.
The whole year of 2013 Leah continues to just push through the pain. The doctors say make sure she is hydrated, that her bowels move, it’s the contraceptives or normal teenage hormones. Her medication is changed several times trying to see if that would improve symptoms. It never did.
By the end of 2013 Leah is complaining about her vision. She does wear prescription glasses/contacts so I made an appointment to have her eyes checked out.
Before I tell the rest, I have forgotten to tell you about who Leah truly is… Leah is an honor roll student. She loves to read and write stories. She will finish a book in just under a day. She was active in 4H and loved taking animals to our county fair. She has taken pigs, rabbits and goats as well as creative writing. Excels in her studies and plays various sports.
You will laugh in her presence when you don’t feel like it because she will do or say something silly to change your mood. She is very outgoing and always makes friends wherever she goes. She is always laughing and singing 80’s music.
The year of 2011/12 she was playing with the local YMCA club volleyball, basketball and softball for her middle school along with travel softball in the summer. She continued with the softball for the school and the travel ball throughout the next two and half years. Softball is her favourite!!
She was excited for the summer of 2014. It was to be a great summer before becoming a sophomore in high school. Players were starting to write to different colleges that they would be interested in attending and possibly to play softball for. They would write to the head coaches and explain they were interested in playing for them while attending their college. Asking for them to come and watch them play for their travel ball teams, in hope of gaining their respect by wanting them to represent their school. Hoping they would keep in touch during the rest of their high school years.
When your academic scores are high and you play ball well enough, colleges are pleased to offer scholarships. Leah was taking this very seriously. One of the colleges Leah wrote to, Rhodes in TN, came to Ohio and watched her play. She was ecstatic and that just made her want to strive harder. She pushed through last summer playing in more pain than before, but worth the pain for the sheer joy of a sport she loves and was wanting to continue playing through college.
We are now in the beginning of 2014. It is January and her vision had changed so we order new contacts and glasses. The Optometrist never questioned anything out of the norm when examining Leah. Wrote a new script and we were on our way.
Leah’s headaches were increasing and not leaving her at all. She is still suffering from the severe abdominal pain, bloating, feeling full, and nausea. She was now having blurred vision even with her new script. Doctors were saying the contraceptives will cause eye issues. Nothing they could do.
She starts having bladder spasms and feels like she always has a bladder infection. When doctors sample her urine we are told just traces of white blood count and that she doesn’t have an infection.
Sharp shooting pains down through her groin. Her right hip is always hurting. We are told over and over to make sure she hydrates!
It is February and she is conditioning for softball. She is having difficulty keeping up. Feeling as though she wants to pass out. Not able to keep her breaths regulated. Of course we are told she needs to hydrate and she had taken the winter off so she was out of shape.
This continues the rest of the school year. She keeps pushing through just so she can play ball. School is over end of May. Travel ball conditioning starts up. Her headaches are more severe along with all the other symptoms. She is experiencing all over pain that won’t go away. She sleeps the day away until it is almost time to go to ball practice. She practices two to three times a week and plays all day on the weekends.
I have noticed that she sits more when not playing. She will come and sit with me, not wanting to join in with the others. Not just at ball but when we are out as well, she will not leave my side. She starts acting like she is afraid to do anything by herself.
Headaches get so severe we go to the ER. Right away they see that her optic nerves are swollen. They call in an Ophthalmologist and he confirms what they see. They do a CT on her head, it shows normal so they ask us to come into the office the next day for more abrasive testing. Next day all tests come back fine.
They tell us to give it a month and come back for recheck. If they are still swollen but no change in tests then it is a birth defect.
THIS is when I finally wake up! How can it be a birth defect if the eye doctor didn’t see it back in the beginning of the year? Or when we were at the doctors for bladder pain?? Doctors always check your eyes, wouldn’t they had seen it then?
I was ignored and asked to schedule for a month out. Meanwhile, we were referred to a Headache clinic.
This Clinic acknowledged what other doctors saw and said her headaches were more than likely genetic headaches. Take some pain reliever and rest, along with drink more water!!
Even with Leah’s pain she still pushed through. She wouldn’t take any type of pain reliever. Said it didn’t help, so why take it? She hides the pain well, so I would just try and make sure she was staying hydrated.
Ball season comes to an end…School will be starting in a week. She is sleeping more. Emotions are all over. She acts like she is still afraid of everything. She won’t even walk by herself from the car to a friend’s front door. Wants me to walk with her??? Wherever I am she wants to be. Not wanting me to leave her side. She is becoming anxious, having lucid dreams. Trouble sleeping, pain is all over her body. She is waking up drenched in sweat. Cold and hot throughout the day. She feels as though her body cannot support her own weight. Tremors in her arms legs and face. Her hands and feet keep going numb. She was having low grade fevers and all the symptoms she has had for the last three years have increased.
She is changing from once a healthy girl to one that can’t even get out of bed. It is August 2014, her sophomore year starts and she is excited. She is planning on getting her temps in October, attending homecoming and playing fall travel ball.
Leah comes home from school exhausted. She falls asleep right away and wakes up in more pain than before. She says she is hurting so bad at school she has a hard time concentrating and understanding what the teachers are saying. She’s having a hard time hiding the pain from her friends. As she walks to each class she says she feels as though she is going to pass out. She’s still having severe back pain and new pains going down into legs. Lights hurt her eyes while inside and when she steps outside the pain shoots through her head making it difficult to see. Lights are too bright all over. The sun is torture. Her legs are having more spasms and her heart keeps racing even when sitting still. She started to just stare off into space and writing words over and over in her school work like she is stuttering, not realizing this until she reads her work.
Research came to my attention about the Gardasil vaccine and adverse reactions. When Leah came home from school one day I asked her to please write everything down, all her pains and odd things that was happening with her body. I told her I believed it was all happening because of this shot.
I made an appointment with her pediatrician and started to research. The more I researched I was certain this was what was happening.
When we saw the doctor she didn’t think that was the case. I told her there was a lot of research out there and how was it that Leah’s symptoms were the same as what was happening to all the other children claiming it was the vaccine as well??? The only common factor was the GARDASIL.
She listened and because of all of Leah’s symptoms she referred us on to several specialists. She ordered what blood work she was able to do. Said she would look into it and would be in touch.
I requested the lot numbers from her adolescent doctor and checked them from a study I found on SaneVax. Dr. Lee had done a study back in 2012 and found several lots to be contaminated with a non B conformation DNA attached to the aluminium adjuvant.
I wasn’t sure what all that meant, but reading through all the information I could find, I started seeing that this shot was sheer poison. When I checked Leah’s lots against what Dr Lee had tested I started to cry. There in black and white was the very first lot number that Dr Lee had tested-the same lot Leah had been injected with!
I was sick. I was mad. Then I realized I had Proof!
As I continued my search for the truth about this vaccine, I was discovering that thousands among thousands all over the world were injured the same as my daughter. Some far worse than her. None that I had found had one of the lot numbers in the study. That told me that EVERY LOT of this senseless vaccine could have the same contaminates as the one in the study!
We have been to eleven different specialists. Most of the tests all come back normal. A few have discovered some type of medical disorder. I have to say that I guess I wanted to rule out any major diagnosis. Doctors are quick to get you out of their office once you mention the possibility of vaccine injury. We are left feeling our only hope is a Bio Medical doctor that does not treat from a pharmaceutical manual. I have lost all trust and respect for any doctor that treats and diagnoses their patients from those manuals.
We were not treated with respect and care. We were told there was no way the Gardasil vaccine could be the reason for all of Leah’s new symptoms. Some even questioned why we would even consider a biomedical doctor. Most found it hard to believe Leah was having all of these symptoms at the same time. Several referred us to a psychiatrist!
I had a phone conversation with one of the psychologists, let’s just say once I started describing what was happening to my daughter and how I had PROOF, they were NOT going to diagnose her with Conversion disorder!
Our conversation ended with, “I am so sorry you and your daughter are going through all of this. My services are not needed at this time. If you feel like you would need for Leah to ever talk to someone, please let us know!”
WOW!!! Thanks doctor for the wonderful concern!
My daughter IS VACCINE INJURED from the HPV vaccine GARDASIL. She has been diagnosed with Lyme disease, metabolic disorder, immune deficiency, and encephalopathy, chronic gastritis with pre-cancerous cells throughout her stomach and colon, and ovarian failure.
She has several ACTIVE viruses within her system which include; Bartonella, babesia, coxsackie B, francisella tularensis, and HPV-6. The HPV-6 was a strain that this senseless vaccine was to fight against!!!
She is heavily toxin with heavy metals that do not want to leave her body. We are receiving treatment and trying to detox her body. Hopefully one day soon Leah will be her Healthy, Active, Funny self.
I urge you if you have not yet received the vaccine, DONT!!! DON’T LET YOUR CHILD Become “ONE LESS” HEALTHY ACTIVE TEENAGER!
Research for yourself and look at the prescribing information that comes with each vaccine. I promise you, if you do you will never vaccinate your loved ones again, with any vaccine!
If you are injured as well from this horrific vaccine, I am truly sorry! You have found HOPE by finding this site.
I promise to ALL of you that are injured, I WILL NOT STOP FIGHTING TO GET THE WORD OUT! I will go to whatever lengths I must to prove to the WORLD what is happening to our children is unethical and needs to STOP!!
Blessings to all!
MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND TAKE YOU INTO HIS CARE ,I WILL LIGHT A CANDLE AND SAY A PRAYER FOR YOU AND YOUR DAUGHTER.WE HAVE ALSO A 13YR OLD INJURED BY GARDASIL LAST SEPT 2014 SO WE WILL ALL GET THROUGH THIS TOGETHER OK !!!
Bless you! I’m so sorry you are going through this horrific nightmare as well. I believe the truth will be known and a stop will be put to this vaccine all together….. I pray for that daily and for when the time comes ALL the injured will be healed! Myself and everyone here with Sanevax are for you. You have our support, love and compassion.. Having ones to understand what you truly are going through helps so much. We keep each other grounded and lifted all at the same time. I too will say a prayer for your child and keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.
Bless you Martin….. Bless you and your sweet family.
This is so scary that our government allows this instead of protecting us. She may find some relief from using Young Living Essential oils.
Some of them are recommended for diffusing, some applied topically and some taken. I use them and love them. They’re pure…chemical free. I hope she feels better soon.
Emily Tarsell says
Oh Leah, We are one with you in trying to spread the word about this terrible vaccine. I am so sorry our efforts were not in time to help you and prevent the suffering you are experiencing. There is hope as some Gardasil victims have found interventions to help them improve. It will take time but you are on the right track now that you know what caused your injuries. I wish you all the best. I think it helps to know that you have lots of us out here who care about what happened to you and to all of the others. SaneVax has listed some resources which may be helpful to you. My daughter Christina died from this terrible vaccine at a time when little was being reported about its terrible side effects.A website in her memory is http://www.gardasil-and-unexplained-deaths.com. Please continue to spread the word that there is another version of Gardasil called Garasil 9 which should also be avoided. My heart goes out to you and all of the injured.
Emily, I am so sorry about your Christina!! 🙁 That breaks my heart over and over, knowing that this horrific vaccine caused you and your family so much pain. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers…Thank you for the kind words.
maureen ellis says
Please spread the word: the vaccines CONTAIN lyme disease and it’s co-infections such as Babesia and Bartonella.
My own daughter is now in final, fatal stage of Lyme disease, contracted from a vaccine.
They are KILLING our children !!
Maureen, I am so sad….. what type of treatments have they tried? If I can ask? Leah is on heavy doses of three different antibiotics now. Says she feels stroke like. Feels like she has the worse case of the flu 🙁 Can you tell me anything I should be looking for? Other severe symptoms?
I am so, so sorry for what has happened. Please, I urge you to take her off of antibiotics. There are natural ways to help deal with the things you listed. Antibiotics will just further lower her immune system. Have you thought to see a natural medicine doctor? Her body can recover but she needs to build it up.
Jeanette Forlano Slaw says
I am so sorry for all the pain and heartache that you and Leah have been through and I thank you very much for sharing Leah’s story in an effort to spread the truth about vaccine injury and to protect other young people and their families. I so hope that Leah recovers and is able to return to the activities she loves. I will share Leah’s story on the “Mothers Speak” page at http://www.vaccinechoiceprayercommunity.org. You are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless and take care . . .
BLESS You!!!! thank you for sharing as well……if we can save one- ONE at a time ….we are doing Good!!!
Blessings to you…..
Thank you so much!
I’ve posted this twice on Twitter. Please keep seeing the biomedical doctor. I know he/she can repair the damage. There is hope. There is treatment.
Thank you David!!!!!!!!!
Veronica Roach says
The reason these things are happening is purely because of corporate greed – they only care about profit, and whenever they can find another means to make money, they will carefully work on the government, health care associations, any group that can build up the ‘need’ for whatever new ‘treatment’ they want to use on us. This is BUSINESS 101 – it is time the public got mad enough to stop the big corporations moving things for their OWN benefit. Anything they can conceive of that could make them money will get invented, whether real or not.
Just look at the drug ads on TV for the real picture – they HAVE to legally tell you what could be the side effects, and they will put that in the small print, but that won’t stop them from persuading your Doctors that this new drug can ‘save the world’ – and Doctors only know what they have been taught, they do not necessarily study up on what else is out there – they treat ‘conditions’ with the drugs they are taught about, simple as that.
I’m so sorry to hear this sad story. Please look up dr. Thomas levy on YouTube and research the docs who talk about and administer high doses of vitamin C, both oral and intravenous. Could help her. All the best.
Debra Prisk says
I would like to suggest a book written by dr. natasha campbell-mcbride
you can even see her approach to reversing autism in her own kids, http://www.mercola.com
But she goes after the gut flora as well as other natural remedies.
I do hope she filed with the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program http://www.hrsa.gov/vaccinecompensation/index.html

Thank you to everyone for the wonderful support, info, and blessings!!!
Shannon, please contact me as I have information to share with you… I gave you my website, but my facebook page is Bonita Stromberg Rogers Praying for Leah!
Dr. Love says
The peace that Jesus came to bring was not the peace of appeasement, or the peace of compromise and conformity. It was a spiritual peace. The world doesn’t give peace, for it doesn’t have any peace to give. It fights for peace, it negotiates for peace, it maneuvers for peace, but there is no ultimate peace in the world. But Jesus gives peace to those who put their trust in Him. If you have received His peace, then you are in His camp. But if you have rejected it, then you are against Him. His peace is available to everyone who will receive it.
I am so sad to hear about your daughter. Thank you for sharing your story and inspiring others to do the same. I am a firm believer that most doctors in biomedical industry have a fundamental misunderstanding of health and wellness as a consequence of what they are taught.. Go to this website http://www.doctoryourself.com and try some of the remedies he suggests for your daughter’s inflammation. Everything he suggests has helped me with a variety of ailments so far. I’m starting to actually feel healthier. Here is the page for Lyme disease http://www.doctoryourself.com/lyme.html
Wishing you all health,
May All Blessings Be!
So sorry to hear about the harm done. But please remember all things are possible as any issues can be reversed. Eating the right diet will help ur body detox and heal. Check out the raw food diet. Like herbs n fruits
All will be okay!
She is mercury poisoned due to this vaccine. Please i urge you look into dr andrew cutler protocol for low frequent dose oral chelation with dmsa dmps and ala. It is slowly saving my life and life of many others.
Anna, thank you for taking the time to comment on this story. I am sure Shannon and her family appreciate the support. With all due respect, there is no mercury in Gardasil. That being said, it would not hurt to consult with an expert in chelation to see if it would help alleviate some of the symptoms. Thanks again.
Bill Chaffee says
Gardasil has amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulphate (AAHS). It also has other ingredients that make the blood brain barrier more permeable. Aluminum in the brain is associated with serious neurological conditions.
Thank you so much for all the support and wonderful information. Our biomedical doctor specializes in Lyme, autism, and vaccine injured. He treats mostly homeopathy/natural ways. He has helped many of the Gardasil injured and comes highly recommended. I have put my trust in God for helping me to make what choices we should regarding Leah’s treatments. She does the chelations… The DMSA we are holding off because the others are not as harsh in her system at the moment. We do use essential oils 🙂 Leah swears by them:-)) I have notes every information that has been given here…. I will be looking into ALL of it!!! Thank you from the center of my heart!!!!! I believe with everything in me that ALL of those injured by this horrific vaccine WILL be healed once the TRUTH is known….. I have asked this and I pray daily for this miracle to happen….. Thank you for reading and sharing our story(nightmare) with others. I’m saddened, because everyday I encounter a new injured being. We have found hope in each other and by supporting each other and giving the best advice we can give, I believe we can SAVE thousands!!!!!
Your story sounds so similar to what my daughter has gone through before she was diagnosed with lyme disease and the confections that come with it. Being from Ohio, being bit by a tick was no big deal in my youth. Dad use to remove the ticks with tweezers and off we went with our life, no such thing as lyme disease in the 60’s and early 70’s. I have no idea what brought about my daughters severe symptoms, was it the flu vaccine she had right after my rounds of chemotherapy? Were her sinus infections which later turned to pneumonia later to fatigue, joint pain and other ailments caused by a vaccine or was her system taxed from being too ambitious and burning the midnight oil because her mother gave her lyme disease unknowling and the second generation is more systematic? I don’t have the answers but I want our health system to wake up and study the disease, find a cure, end the pain it is causing to so many people who have no idea it may be the culprit behind there joint pain, fatigue, memory loss, anxiety, depression along with so many other ailments. If I can help you reach out in anyway, please let me know. I am undergoing the essential oils and strict diet because I know if I don’t dementia or alzheimer’s is going to take over because of my symptoms, and my daughter thank goodness, is on the right path with antibiotics, essential oils, diet and getting her life back. Susan
Susan, Thank you for taking the time to read our story. Your thoughts are on the right track girlie! Lyme is the number one virus/germ that 95% of the population has. Mix it with the genetic dna in the vaccines and it is a wonderful combination for sickness and disease. I HATE KNOWING what I now know about ALL vaccines. All of my children were vaccinated with their childhood vaccines. Never did I question anything the doctors had to say. I TRUSTED them!!! I am not PRO or ANTI, I am TRUTH for vaccines! The truth is slowly coming out and hopefully the population will start to question and research for themselves. The disturbing information on the HARMS of All vaccines is there in black and white. No grey area to be found 🙁
I will keep you and your daughter in my thoughts and prayers….Please reach out to me on FB. I want to try to get some type of support group together for us here in OHIO. Since our story has been published several families here in Ohio have reached out for support….Ones who have been trying to figure out their illnesses and are now connecting the dots to the REAL reason why they are so sick.
Blessings to you and your family
Jackie Sprouse says
Hello my name is jackie. I am from chillicothe, my 12 year old has been having the same things happening with her. We see the dr on the 31st of March. Is there any certain thing I should tell her dr to look for ? Thank you
Hello Jackie…I am so sorry this is happening to you. Are you on facebook? I will try to connect with you. Doctors are quick to discredit anything related to a vaccine injury. They do not know how to treat and diagnose one.
Most of the injured develop GI issues.
Please look me up. There is a doctor in Chillicothe that has been helping some of the injured.
I’m so sickened over hearing what this has done to your daughter and family. I’m sorry that you’re going through this and I hope article this will make a difference. My oldest daughter (14) has had the vaccine much because of her pediatricians urging. My second daughter (9) will NOT have this vaccine. Thank you for sharing your story and my prayers to your daughter and her recovery.
Shannon, I live in Ohio and I’m vaccine injured. I received the DTP vaccine as a baby and had febrile seizures all day. My mom called the doctor’s office but they told her that this was normal and there was no reason for me to be brought in. She said it was awful to watch. I have no history of seizures in my family. I remember regularly having partial seizures throughout my life but they started turning more severe after I had my first child when I was 23. I’m now 33 and I’ve had about 20 seizures/ year since then. I recently read that there was no connection between DTP vaccine and seizures in life. The study showed that there was no difference (in seizures later in life) between those who had febrile seizures for any reason and those who had febrile seizures because of the vaccine. I thought that was really interesting because the study is saying that anyone who has febrile seizures has increased risk of seizures later in life but DTP gets no responsibility for creating those seizures simply because it doesn’t add any EXTRA risk more than “regular” febrile seizures.
I’m very sorry to hear Leah’s story. I related to it because of the vaccine connection and because I am so dependent on others and many times people look at me as if this is some psychological problem because my husband drives me everywhere and I’m afraid to be without him. I really hope that Leah can detox and become an active teenager again. I will pray for her.

Today, I received a horrifying response to an earlier blog asking if we shouldn’t know more about the long-term risks of the HPV vaccine before mandating that it be given to all young girls:
“my daughter had hpv vaccine on 6/25/07 – fainted and had two seizures immediately after injection
posted @ Tuesday, July 03, 2007 11:27 AM by kim kimes”.
I immediately ran some Web searches and it turns out that Kim’s daughter is not alone; there are over 1,600 adverse reaction reports. Considering the chronology I’m about to describe, it seems the word is not getting out fast enough or far enough about the risks of extremely serious side effects, including possibly death (see below). Please, if you know anyone with a daughter, make sure they’re informed before they commit to having their daughter given the HPV vaccine.
1990’s – first references to research and studies for an HPV vaccine.
