HPV Vaccine Hotly Debated on Today Show

"There is no medical emergency in the state of Texas over cervical cancer. The emergency is in the board room of Merck because they've seen this [HPV vaccine mandate] measure fail in three states and they want to make sure this thing doesn't go down the tubes.......The product was only tested in 1200 little girls under the age of 16. That is not nearly enough information to base a policy that is going to affect hundreds of thousands of girls in the United States, perhaps possibly even millions...This is a very, very expensive vaccine. The amount of money it is going to take to vaccinate every single little girls at the age of 11 and do that every year - we don't know because the vaccine hasn't been followed up long enough to know that this is actually going to have an impact when these little girls are old enough to develop cervical cancer...." - Dawn Richardson, The Today Show, Feb. 5, 2007


"Legislation mandating the HPV vaccine for pre-adolescent schoolgirls is pending in the District, Maryland and Virginia. Those who advocate it are quick to note that parents can opt out of the program. But few can say exactly how many bureaucratic hoops a parent will have to jump through to do that. Besides, why should the onus be on the parents to figure out how not to be in a government-mandated program? In New Hampshire, parents opt in -- and the burden is on the government to show how the vaccine can benefit their children....So are New Hampshire residents somehow smarter and better able to develop effective public health programs? Are they more concerned about their children than the rest of us? Hardly. What they have that we do not is the right attitude. They take their state motto seriously: "Live Free or Die," while too many of us are content to live and die as slaves." - Courtland Milloy, Washington Post , January 24, 2007, Force Is Not the Only Way to Administer a Vaccine

Barbara Loe Fisher Commentary:

This morning (Feb. 5) on the NBC "Today Show," (see the video HPV Vaccine is mandatory in Texas) Dawn Richardson, the President of PROVE (Parents Requesting Open Vaccine Education) in Texas debated Texas Rep. Jessica Farrar (D) who supports the Executive Order issued by the Republican Governor of Texas, Rick Perry, on Feb. 2 mandating that all sixth grade girls gets three doses of HPV vaccine in order to attend school. Dawn made the point that "the Governor has side stepped policy...there is no way for the people of this state to be able to add input and for the legislature to be able to debate and decide and this is just plain wrong."

Although Dawn was supposed to be only debating the legislator, she ended up also debating NBC doc Nancy Snyderman, who offered her opinion on the intelligence of state legislators when she qualified that she was speaking "as an American citizen" and proclaimed "I never feel better when legislators start arguing about the science. They haven't done a good job with stem cells and they haven't done a good job with basic science and I am not so sure they are going to do a better job with this...."

And therein lies the problem with medical doctors at Merck and medical doctors in state health departments and medical doctors at the CDC and many medical doctors in the U.S. occupying a position of authority (like on TV) : they just can't help telling other people what to do. And they get really, really mad if you don't do what they tell you to do - for your own good and everyone's else's good, of course. Their favorite tactic, when they really don't want you to understand the risks you are about to take with whatever they are telling you to do, is: "You don't understand. You couldn't possibly understand the complexities of this issue. I'll make the decision for you."

Well, Nancy, I've got news for you. The majority of us ordinary non-M.D. Americans believe in our right to fully participate in the creation of the laws which govern us by working through our elected officials, in this case, our state legislators. We don't believe in a medical aristocracy running the show. We actually believe our elected officials, like us, have a brain and can think through these tough issues like whether our pre-adolescent daughters ought to be injected with a vaccine that Merck only tested in a few thousand little girls or whether we should be paying higher health insurance premiums to spend $4 billion to prevent 3700 cervical cancer deaths in the U.S. that could be avoided if women just got pap smears and early treatment of pre-cancerous lesions. We don't think these issues have nearly as much to do about sex (that convenient red herring) as it does about this HPV vaccine's safety, necessity and cost.

The days when Moms (and legislators) bow down to medical doctors and drug companies and offer up their children to every new vaccine that comes down the pike are over. Faith without question rightly belongs in Cathedrals and Temples, but not in the halls of our state Capitols or Congress.

Parents all over America are standing up and shouting now: Show us the Science and Give us a Choice.

Just in time.


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR (Published)

The Washington Post
February 1, 2007

Thanks to columnist Courtland Milloy for his courageous defense of the informed consent ethic, which includes allowing parents to make informed, voluntary vaccination decisions for their children ["Force Is Not the Only Way to Administer a Vaccine," Metro section, Jan. 24]. Mr. Milloy makes the point that if the governed are to respect and have confidence in those who govern them, state officials must treat citizens with respect, rather than using coercion and intimidation to implement health policies.

In addition to the human papillomavirus vaccine, many vaccines are being developed for diseases that depart from the smallpox and polio model and are not transmissable in public settings. Vaccines have benefits as well as risks that are higher for some people because of genetic and other biological differences, as has been demonstrated by the more than $1 billion awarded to vaccine casualties under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986.

Mr. Milloy has reminded us that the people of New Hampshire embrace a liberal informed-consent policy for vaccines that emphasizes education rather than prosecution because they are serious about "Live Free or Die," their state motto, "while too many of us are content to live and die as slaves."

His warning also challenges us to think about an important moral question: Should citizens be injected against their will with biological agents that can injure and kill for what the state has defined as the common good?

How we answer that question may well determine how we define freedom in America in the 21st century.

Barbara, My name is Rina Shaffer. I am a new mother of a 4 month old and while I was still pregnant I became aware of the vaccine debate. In all of my research I have really become very anti-vaccine. Is there any way I can help you in this fight to make others aware? I would also love to talk to you and know whether you have had your children vaccinated and how they are doing. I have not had my baby boy vaccinated in any way at this point and would be terrified to do so. I live close to you in Springfield, VA and would love to hear from you! You can email me at beanschlager@yahoo.com. Thanks!

Hello Barbara,

Do you know if SB 1873 ever ended up passing? If so, people also need to be made aware of the bill when considering this vaccine for their children. It's all so shady.

L. Noelle said...

WOW!!! All I can say is, I don't know what took me so long to find you! I want to congratulate you on being an advocate, a DOER, and a responsible parent! I finally found you! I would love to talk to you regarding the work you are doing, because I am interested in doing the exact same work right now. This is a passionate issue for me, and has been for 8 years. Please come to my blog, if you have a chance, and you will see this is a subject I have just begun to speak on. I would love a chance to talk with you! www.jadensjournal.blogspot.com

Warmest Wishes, Noelle

The American College of Pediatricians is opposed to any legislation which would require HPV vaccination for school attendance.

I was glad to see that the American College of Pediatricians dug deep into the studies and are not jumping on the bandwagon of pushing this vaccine for Merck. They take a conservative well reasoned approach which takes into consideration the overall family perspective on the issue. They are also very sensitive to parental rights.

This week the CT legislature is holding a public hearing on a bill that would make this vaccine mandatory for girls entering 6th grade.

Mrs. Fisher
I am a young mother living in Canada. I am glad to see that you were able to voice your opinion on the today show, concerning this new poison they want, and are injecting into young girls. Your voice is what speaks for many of us, and I am very gratful for your work on these matters.

IF for just one second society could realize the implications of their own biases and ignorance the world might actually have a chance to become a better place.
By not posting any comments that support the furtherment of cancer research and the potential to save the lives of our children you are only furthering your own voice and what about those who have lost sisters, mothers and wives to cervical cancer? I want the vaccine to be implemented and I want the right to chose to have the vaccine - you are taking this right away.
Think for a second why people aren't dying of polio? Or where is rubella which causes spontaneous abortion if contracted by a pregnant woman? Or how about the many other vaccines that are saving lives daily - you have taken for granted what this free world has given you and the advancements in health has provided for the safety of your family already.
Stand up for the right causes - the ones that don't have global implications because after all you aren't the only people in the world.

-An angry third year nursing student from Canada

To the anonymous Canadian nursing student:

The health outcomes associated with vaccines are a two-sided story. Unfortunately, the only side of the story that is aggressively financed and promoted by organized nursing, medicine and the pharmaceutical companies is the story that you posted.

The other side of the story is that the true benefits, risks and costs have not been properly evaluated. The immunization system can and should be improved and every effort to avoid unnecessary injury needs to be taken up with dedication and sincere compassion.

The story that everyone hasn't heard is that there are many nurses and physicians who are now disabled from taking the mandatory flu and hepatitis B vaccines required to keep their jobs. They suffer from debilitating demyelinating illnesses such as MS and struggle to recover from Guillain-Barre Syndrome. There are plenty of nurses with vaccine-injured children who had no idea that their children could be so horribly damaged from a vaccine they considered was relatively harmless. They believed what the CDC said; that it was OK to vaccinate their babies if they had mild illness or had sustained a "coincidental" seizure after a previous vaccine. They believed their pediatrician that it was OK that their baby screamed for hours after their first DTaP. And then they gave the second vaccine because they were reassured that it was OK and their babies were never the same.

There are many nurses and physicians who served in the military and are now completely disabled from the effects of anthrax vaccine. There are nurses and physicians in India who are outraged that the current polio outbreak there is fueled by giving some infants nine or more doses of oral polio vaccine. Live virus is shed for days afterwards and transmitted to others via the fecal-oral route. Yes, people are dying of polio - vaccine-strain polio in some cases.

Do your pediatric textbooks or clinical instructors teach you how to recognize and manage a vaccine reaction, how to minimize the chances of future injury and what to counsel a grieving parent when their infants is permanently damaged or worse yet, dies? These events aren't as rare as you may think.

You probably assume that every aspect of vaccines and the vaccine administration schedule has been thoroughly evaluated. You also probably assume that we know the biological mechanism by which vaccine injury occurs and as a result, it is possible to make these potent drugs safer. Those are false assumptions. If you can find a solid randomized trial that evaluates the health effects of giving multiple vaccines simultaneously, please post it. Or, if you find a good study that evaluates the long-term health outcomes of highly vaccinated versus unvaccinated children please post that as well.

Please take some time to learn about the other side of story. Vaccine-injured children, nurses and physicians are going to be your patients too. These people have paid a very high price with their health and in some cases, have sacrificed their lives for the rest of us. They need and deserve our profound respect, compassion and our best efforts to help them recover.

Yes, there are biases and ignorance all the way around. Ms. Fisher is standing up for a "right cause" and yes, it has global implications. All life matters - even the lives of vaccine-injury victims.

Adults disabled by Vaccines

Tuesday, October 16, 2007
My Name is CATHERINE . I was a young- bull trying to accomplish all the things I had been taught: School, Work and make a life for yourself. The world gives you back what you put into it. I worked all throughout and it took me six years to finish college and I worked in medical practices starting at four dollars an hour and also worked full- time as well.

I graduated from Fashion Institute of Technology with honors: Member of ALPHA BETA GAMMA CHAPTER VI, Dean’s list, Mentoring Program Etc. After that my passion was and will always be the Medical Field so at the young age of TWENTYFIVE, I decided to become a part of Bellevue Hospital School of Radiography, N.Y. N.Y., so that I could have a specialty and manage a department in the hospital. I allotted myself ten dollars a week for food and took a loan for the school and that’s where my story begins or ends, shall I say.

AT the young age of 25, I attended Bellevue School of Radiography and was maintaining an A, average and bets were placed that I would be the Valedictorian. It was extremely intensive, ten classes a semester and clinical all afternoon. I studied five hours a day.

Close to a year into the program, we were instructed to have vaccinations. They told me side -effects could be flu, fever, soar throat. We were told that we did not have to but if we did not we could not continue with the program. After working so hard I was scared not to complete the program as I knew my family was leaving the country and I had to make a life for myself. We were instructed to go to the clinical area and wait for our turn. I remember when it was my turn the nurse asked the doctor if it was okay to give me all the injections at one time- he paused and stated yes.

I was given MMR, Hepatitis, and Influenza that day and that is when my life took a drastic change. Many of us starting with the next day had flu-like symptoms, which started changing everyday. Many of us became disabled that day;” THE FORGOTTEN PEOPLE”, I CALL US AS THE STORY OF HOW OUR LIFES WERE FOREVER CHANGED AND CONTINUE TO BE.


FACTS :
I STARTED HAVING BURNING IN MY LEGS TO THE POINT THAT I COULDN’T WEAR PANTS, SOCKS, BLANKETS; NOTHING COULD TOUCH MY LEGS. IT FELT LIKE SOMEONE WAS HOLDING HOT IRONS ON MY LEGS, THE PAIN WOULD NOT STOP.

I STARTED HAVING SENSATATIONS OF ANTS CRAWLING ALL OVER MY BODY, IN MY EARS, EYEBALLS, EVERYWHERE; IT WOULD NOT STOP.

MY SKIN WOULD BUBBLE; I CALL IT, AS IF A BABY WAS KICKING AND YOU COULD FEEL IT AND ACTUALLY SEE IT. MANY OTHER STUDENTS STARTED REPORTING SIMILAR SYMPTOMS ALL NEUROLOGICAL, YET DIFFERENT, MICHELE KUHNLE-BLADDER PARALYSIS-HAD TO CATHETERIZE HERSELF FOR 6 MONTHS AFTER MISSING 4 MONTHS OF SCHOOL. OTHERS WERE FAINTING, SUFFERING WITH TINGLING SENSATATIONS, ANT LIKE SENSATATIONS, HEARING LOSS ETC. We all started reporting these symptoms to the school and they were sending us to the clinic part for us to be evaluated. Everyone was at a loss at that time since vaccines weren’t known to cause Autism, Neurological disorders, Gillian Bar Syndrome.

I went to HIP as that was the insurance I had. Orthopedics started with:
X-rays
Nuclear Scans- I was radioactive for 2 days and had to stay away from children
Cat Scans
Emg’s
Electroencephalograms
Myelogram- I went into anaphylactic shock and almost died at LaGuardia hospital.
Skin grafts
Venuous flow tests, etc

No one knew what was wrong; I was put on Massive doses of painkillers:
180 pills of Soma a month
Vicodin ES 750mg ,TID
Voltaren
Celebrex
Viox
Flexoril
Percocet
You name it, I was on it and the burning would not stop, not for a minute, I was losing my mind. I was given a walker, leg braces, arm braces and could barely ambulate; the other problem was I couldn’t wear clothes below the waist. They didn’t know what to do and kept sending me home with more medicine. My nickname there was “BIONIC WOMAN”.

Eventually, I wanted to die just to stop the pain and a neurologist named DR. S.found me in the staircase crying at HIP and decided to do an exam. He felt sure and called my family in to announce that I had Multiple Sclerosis and 95% chances of never walking again; All this when I was only 25 years old.

I woke up one morning to my family practically breaking down the door, and as I crawled to answer it they stated” I had called everyone crying I didn’t want to live anymore and was saying goodbye to them during the night”. I have no recollection of that event. They also discovered I had bruises all over my body from apparently falling out of bed repeatedly, which I do not recall. My family didn’t know how to help as they were emigrants and were not familiar with the medical system. I had exhausted the $40,000.00 on medical fees; I worked to save from the age of 13 on. I had to sell my Maxima, which, I purchased new and was paid for to travel to school and back, and shortly I was going to be homeless.

I had to crawl to brush my teeth, crawl to try and shower, lived without toilet paper for days, clean towels etc. My family lived in Canada and they were feeling guilty as if they did something wrong; genetically. They were either in denial or sobbing.

Eventually, I started feeling that I couldn’t crawl to leave the house to see my Neurologist because there was not enough air and I couldn’t breath. My father offered to carry me; he said he would protect me. My family knew I was deteriorating being left in a bed for two years with no physical therapy and tons of medications. We were following the doctors’ orders. Finally, my family called the doctors to tell them this and I was told I needed a Psychiatrist and therapy, on top, I started having PANIC ATTACKS, which at that time, I didn’t know what they were and thought my life was ending. My family took me to NYU Hospital for a second opinion.

I underwent more testing and the Chief Resident Neurologist-Dr. J. felt I had a POST-PERIPHERAL MYELOPATHY FROM THE VACCINES AND WROTE IT IN HIS CHART. MY MEDICATIONS WERE SWITCHED WHICH CAUSED HORRIBLE WITHDRAWLS. THE NEW COCKTAIL WAS:
· TEGRATOL-BLOOD TESTS EVERY MONTH FOR THIS MEDICATION
· ANTI-DEPRESSANTS FOR PAIN AND DEPRESSION-WHICH I HAD SEVERE SIDE- EFFECTS TO AT LEAST TEN OF THEM, WHICH I TRIED, PALPATATION, CYANOSIS, SYNCOPE, GAINING 40 POUNDS, ETC
· OXAZEPAM FOR ANXIETY
· INDERAL

I BECAME A CRAWLING JUNKEY. MY FIVE YEAR RELATIONSHIP AND ENGAGEMENT ENDED, HE COULD NOT HANDLE SEEING ME IN A WHEEL CHAIR, MANY MEMBERS OF MY FAMILY COULD NOT FACE ME, I LOST ALL MY FRIENDS AS THEIR LIVES WENT ON AND MINE WAS DETERIORATING.

WE STARTED LOOKING FOR ALTERNATIVE TREATMENTS WHICH WERE COSTLY, I BEGAN A REGIME OF:
· CHIROPRACTIC-DR. F.- 5 times a week
· Accupuncture-2x a week, that was all my family could afford
· Brain scans and continuous scans of every part of my body.
· Referred to Orthopedic Surgeon-Dr. D.
· Started therapy with Judy for 5 years, which saved my life; Center for Psychotherapy and later B Center for Psychotherapy. Eventually my family went from being well-off to having to sell their furniture to pay for all of these treatments, let alone I had two other sisters that had to be cared for. They sold our house ALSO 111-04 76th Drive in Forest Hills, I cried for months, and years.

I had applied for disability and had been turned down two times which is there protocol. By the third time and appearing in front of the judge and representing myself, I was deemed disabled due to having Guillian Bar Syndrome, but not the usual motor loss; I had SENSORY PARASTHESIA AND DYSASTHESIA, WHICH WAS STILL NOT PART OF THE ICD-9 CLASSIFICATIONS OF CODES.

Dr. D(Orthopedic Surgeon) was treating me with multiple Trigger Point injections; I estimate to have had over five hundred and I had been on a cocktail of medications. Winters were hard because I was not able to wear pants, socks, use sheets or blankets etc. The Doctor, not knowing what else to do decided to try a cream called Zostrix HP, used for Diabetic burning or Shingle Patients, which reduced the burning and I could wear clothes again on my lower extremities, given time. I used to have to buy socks that cost Thirty dollars a pair due to their softness. This also made it easier to wear the braces since the fabric intensified the burning at that time. Finally, the orthopedic surgeon called me one night and said he couldn’t treat me anymore because all the treatments weren’t really helping, I had put on 40 pounds from all the injections and he could not do more than what he had done. A week later, he called to tell me he heard about a pain center and gave me the information. All of this went on for about 6 years before I found Dr. H, Double Diplomat, And Chronic Pain Anesthesiologist.

Life started getting better as I started treating with him. My medication cocktail became:
· Paxil 70 mg daily
· Vicodin ES 750 mg , TID
· Protonix- stomach was destroyed with all medications
· Oxazepam 15mg, TID
· Celebrex BID
· Zoxtrix HP daily, but could not shave legs to use this cream

My cocktail was now less and I began having Ambulatory Epidurals under anesthesia. In total over 8 more years I had:
· 14 ambulatory epidurals under anesthesia
· 2 Arthroscopic knee surgeries; Dr. B- Orthopedic Surgeon, Nassau County
· 300 Trigger point injections or more

It was after eight years of treatment with him, I was finally able to walk a block and stop to rest from the pain. Every few months, I was able to walk another block, and this continued until the year of 2000. Ten years later I finally could stand long enough to brush my teeth, partly through a shower, I could wear clothes. Thank god too, because we could not afford the Chiropractors and Acupuncture anymore and my father suffered a heart- attack and had a quintuple bypass surgery and he could not carry me or drive me anymore.

I NEEDED HELP AND STARTED GETTING INFORMED AS IT HAD BEEN TOO PAINFUL FOR ME IN THE PAST, AND EVEN WRITING THIS LETTER SETS ME INTO TEARS; I DO IT FOR MY LITTLE MIRACLE, MY FOUR YEAR OLD DAUGHTER, BECAUSE I KNOW I CAN NEVER GIVE HER THE LIFE I COULD HAVE. I CONTACTED OUR CONGRESSMAN, A. WEINER, QUEENS, NY, WHO I AM GRATEFUL TO AS HE CONTACTED HILLARY CLINTON, SUPTEINTENDANT SERIO- DEPARTMENT OF INSURANCE AND THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH; C. MURPHY, AND OTHERS WERE BEING FOUGHT BY ME REGARDING MY DISABILITY; ALL OF THE MIS-DIAGNOSES; NOW THAT INFORMATION WAS AVAILABLE, THIMEROSAL WAS A HOT TOPIC.

MY DOCTORS WERE WILLING TO TESTIFY AND IT WAS REPORTED TO THE CDC AND THE VACCINE INJURY HOTLINE ONCE THESE WERE CREATED. THERE WERENT THE LAWS WHEN I WAS INJURED THAT THE DOCTORS HAD TO REPORT IT TO THE CDC, THERE WAS NO VAERS, WHICH I AM STILL NOT A PART OF. IT APPEARS THAT THE QUALITY OF LIFE IS MORE IMPORTANT FOR A CHILD THAN AN ADULT. IT SHOULDN’T MATTER AT WHAT AGE THIS OCCURS, WHAT IS WORSE A CHILD WHO DOESN’T KNOW LIFE YET, OR SOMEONE’S LIFE THAT IS RIPPED APART?

LAWYERS THAN SAID THE DOCTORS WOULD BE FIRED IF THEY TESTIFIED AND THIS WAS COMMON PRACTICE with VAERS, AS THE GOVT WAS COVERING UP. MY DOCTORS WILL AND STILL WILL, IF NEED BE AFTER THE HORROR THEY SAW ME GO THROUGH. I HAVE SPOKEN TO THEM RECENTLY ABOUT THIS AND THEY ARE MORE THAN HAPPY TO TAKE THE RISK AS THEY FEEL A VIBRANT, BRAVE, YOUNG WOMAN WAS LED TO ALMOST DEATH, DISABILITY, AND POVERTY. YOU GET PENALIZED FOR GOING TO COLLEGE BECAUSE IF YOU DIDN’T CONTRIBUTE ENOUGH IN TAXES YOU CAN ONLY GET $400. A MONTH AND FOOD STAMPS, WHICH DO NOT COVER TOILET PAPER, SOAP, LAUNDRY DETERGENT, PAPER TOWELS, CLOTHING ETC.
I HAVE ALL THE DOCUMENTS SUPPORTING THESE LETTERS FROM Congress AND NOTHING WAS EVER DONE ABOUT IT FOR ME OR BY VAERS, CDC ETC. THE LETTERS KEPT STATING I NEEDED PERMISSION ON A FEDERAL LEVEL TO BE ACCEPTED TO THE VACCINE ADVERSE EFFECT FUND. NO ONE WAS EVER ABLE TO BE REACHED, ALTHOUGH IT WAS REPORTED AND I WAS GIVEN A SPECIFIC NUMBER TO REFER TO. IT APPEARS THAT THE VACCINES HAVE BEEN ADDED AND ARE BACK-DATED TO THIS PERIOD now. I HAVE BEEN INSTRUCTED TO WRITE THIS LETTER TO MERC PHARMACEUTICALS LEGAL DEPARTMENT TO NOTIFY THEM AND TO ASK FOR COMPENSATION TO AVOID LAUNCHING A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT. I RECEIVED A PHONE CALL FROM A WOMAN NAMED ANGELIQUE, WHO STATED SHE WAS THE PERSONAL ASSISTANT TO HILLARY CLINTON AND IF THIS DID NOT RESOLVE ANYTHING, HILLARY CLINTON WOULD BE HANDLING THIS AS A PERSONAL MATTER AND never did anything or answered my calls afterwards.

I AM STILL DISABLED TO DATE AND HAVE A FOUR YEAR OLD TO SUPPORT. I HAVE HAD FOURTEEN AMBULATORY SURGERIES, 3 SURGERIES, AND HAVE TAKEN THOUSANDS OF PRESCRIBED MEDICATIONS FOR THIS WHEN MY LIFE SUDDENLY CHANGED AT THE EARLY AGE OF TWENTYFIVE, AFTER ONE YEAR OF ENTERING THIS SCHOOL AFTER COMPLETING MY B.S. DEGREE.
IN ADDITION, IN 2000, I HAD MY GALL BLADDER REMOVED AT NORTH SHORE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, FOREST HILLS, NY BY DR. ALANDEWI; WHO STATES THAT I HAD BILIARY DYSKENESIA DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF MEDICATION I HAD BEEN ON FOR YEARS. HE FELT IT WAS VERY RARE FOR SOMEONE MY AGE TO HAVE THIS.
I HAVE SUFFERED MANY YEARS NOW AND CONTINUE TO DO SO.I AM BEGGING FOR A CHANCE TO AFFORD MY YOUNG CHILD A BETTER QUALITY OF LIFE AS I LIVE ON A FIXED INCOME, A SMALL ONE FROM SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY. I AM A SINGLE MOTHER, AND HAD TO MOVE TO MONTREAL, CANADA, TO BE NEAR MY FAMILY AS I NEED THEIR HELP IN RAISING HER DUE TO MY LIMITED ABILITIES. SHE IS MY REASON FOR LIVING AND TO ME A MIRACLE FOR ALL THE HELL I HAVE BEEN THROUGH. I DO NOT WANT HER TO BE RAISED IN POVERTY, SHE ALREADY SEES ME SUFFER, TAKE MEDICATION, CONSTANT DOCTORS’ APPOINTMENTS, BRACES, ETC. MY LIFE WAS STOLEN FROM ME I WANT AND BEG FOR THE CHANCE TO GIVE HER A GOOD LIFE. I AM NOT JUST A NUMBER. MY NAME IS CATHERINE HAMON, BS, CRA, AAS, MA, AS I CONTINUED MY STUDIES WHEN I AM ABLE TO AND CLEAR ENOUGH SINCE THE MEDICATION MAKES YOU FORGETFUL, LACK OF ENERGY, ETC.
MY CURRENT DIAGNOSES ARE:
GUILLIAN BAR SYNDROME
MYELOPATHY
FIBROMYALGIA WITH MYOFACIAL RADICULOPATHY
MY CURRENT MEDICATION REGIME:
PAXIL 70MG DAILY FOR BURNING AND ANTI-DEPRESSANT PROPERTIES
LYRICA 50MG, TID-NEUROMUSCULAR
ALERTEC-MODOFANIL – 100MG, BID-ENERGY;ANTI-NARCOLEPTIC AND EXPENSIVE
CLONAZEPAM, 50MG, BID
VICODIN 750MG, TID

I AM NOW BEING EVALUATED BY HOSPITAL-in Canada-CHRONIC PAIN CENTER BY:
DR. F-RHEUMOTOLOGIST AND DR. G; WHO ARE EXTREMELY CONCERNED ABOUT THE MIX OF MEDICATIONS NY HAS ME ON AND THAT THE SIDE –EFFECTS MAY BE HORRIFIC AND I AM UNDERGOING EXAMS AGAIN.
I AM NOW FUNCTIONAL, WITH MEDICATIONS, BUT MY CONDITION VARIES WITH WEATHER ETC, AND SOME DAYS ARE MUCH HARDER THAN OTHERS. I WILL BE ON MEDICATION THE REST OF MY LIFE WHICH I FOUGHT VERY HARD NOT TO BE ON. I FINALLY CHOSE PERHAPS A SHORTER LIFE BUT A MORE FUNCTIONALONE.
WHOEVER READS THIS, PLEASE FIND THE COMPASSION IN YOUR HEART TO HELP. I DID NOT ASK FOR THIS AND WILL SUFFER IN PAIN PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY UNTIL I DIE. I AM NOW FORTYTWO YEARS OLD.I AM TEMPORARILY RESIDING IN CANADA FOR ONE YEAR AS I CANNOT TAKE CARE OF MYSELF AT TIMES AND MY OLD-AGED PARENTS HELP ME.
I BEG AND ASK THAT YOU FIND THE MERCY, COMPASSION AND KINDNESS IN YOUR HEART TO DO SOMETHING TO COMPENSATE ME COMPENSATE ME FOR WHAT I HAVE BEEN THROUGH AND WILL CONTINUE TO UNTIL I DIE.

MY MAIN REASON IS TO GIVE MY DAUGHTER, BRIANNA, A CHANCE OF HAVING A GOOD LIFE, WITH SECURITY. IF SOMETHING HAPPENS TO ME, SO SHE CAN GO TO SCHOOL AND COLLEGE, SO WE DON’T HAVE TO WAIT ON FOOD LINES ANYMORE OR TAKE FURNITURE FROM THE GARBAGE ANYMORE. I BEG, AND ASK AS A MOTHER, WHO WANTS TO SEE HER CHILD NOT SUFFER FOR THE HORRORS THAT HAPPENED TO ME. IT IS MY RIGHT, AND AN OBLIGATION FROM YOUR COMPANY TO DO SO AS YOU ARE A BIG PART OF THE CAUSE. I ASK FOR WHAT IS FAIR, I TRUST IN GOD, AND HE SEES ALL AND I KNOW THAT JUSTICE WILL PREVAIL.

I CANNOT AFFORD LIFE INSURANCE; APT INSURANCE ETC. PLEASE FIND IT IN YOUR HEART TO DO THE RIGHT THING. I COULD HAVE APPROACHED THIS WITH A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT; I HAVE NOT. I HAVE COME TO YOU TO SEEK RETRIBUTION FOR WHAT I HAVE SUFFERED THROUGH AND WISH ONLY THAT YOU MAY NEVER KNOW THE HORRORS OF PAIN THE BRAIN CAN CREATE.

YOU HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE TO BE IN A BETTER POSITION THAN MYSELF. THIS DID NOT HAPPEN TO ME BECAUSE OF GENETICS, OR ON ITS OWN. IT WAS INDUCED BY THE VACCINES THEREFORE; IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY SINCE YOU CREATED THESE. AGAIN, IT DESTROYED MANY LIVES; I AM ONE PERSON ASKING, PRIVATELY, WITHOUT INCLUDING THE OTHER CLASS MEMBERS.

I HAVE SPOKEN TO MANY LAWYERS WHO ADVISE ME DIFFERENTLY BUT I AM TRYING TO HAVE FAITH IN YOUR COMPANY AND IN DOING THE RIGHT THING FOR ME AS WELL AS FOR THE LIFE OF AN INNOCENT FOUR YEAR OLD. DON’T CONDEMN HER TO A LIFE THAT WAS BESTOWED UPON ME. I WAS A LEADER AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE IF I HAVE TO. MY VOICE WILL BE HEARD, BOOKS WILL BE WRITTEN.

I ASK FOR COMPENSATION FOR THE EIGHTEEN YEARS OF SUFFERING AND THE REST OF MY LIFE ON MEDICATION. I DON’T KNOW HOW LONG I WILL HAVE TO LIVE BUT I WANT TO KNOW MY DAUGHTER WILL NOT HAVE TO WORRY. I HAVE ENOUGH DEGREES THAT I SHOULD AND COULD HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL BUT YOUR VACCINES TOOK THAT AWAY. I ASK THAT YOU FAVOR MY REQUEST FOR MY FAMILY, MY PARENTS AND THEIR SUFFERING THROUGH THIS, AND MOST OF ALL FOR THE REMAINDER OF MY LIFE. I TRUST YOUR FAIRNESS, INTEGRITY, CARING FOR THE LIFE OF A HUMAN BEING.


THANK YOU, FOR YOUR ATTENTION AND UNDERSTANDING.

I STARTED HAVING BURNING IN MY LEGS TO THE POINT THAT I COULDN’T WEAR PANTS, SOCKS, BLANKETS; NOTHING COULD TOUCH MY LEGS. IT FELT LIKE SOMEONE WAS HOLDING HOT IRONS ON MY LEGS, THE PAIN WOULD NOT STOP.

I STARTED HAVING SENSATATIONS OF ANTS CRAWLING ALL OVER MY BODY, IN MY EARS, EYEBALLS, EVERYWHERE; IT WOULD NOT STOP.

MY SKIN WOULD BUBBLE; I CALL IT, AS IF A BABY WAS KICKING AND YOU COULD FEEL IT AND ACTUALLY SEE IT. MANY OTHER STUDENTS STARTED REPORTING SIMILAR SYMPTOMS ALL NEUROLOGICAL, YET DIFFERENT, MICHELE KUHNLE-BLADDER PARALYSIS-HAD TO CATHETERIZE HERSELF FOR 6 MONTHS AFTER MISSING 4 MONTHS OF SCHOOL. OTHERS WERE FAINTING, SUFFERING WITH TINGLING SENSATATIONS, ANT LIKE SENSATATIONS, HEARING LOSS ETC. We all started reporting these symptoms to the school and they were sending us to the clinic part for us to be evaluated. Everyone was at a loss at that time since vaccines weren’t known to cause Autism, Neurological disorders, Gillian Bar Syndrome.

I went to HIP as that was the insurance I had. Orthopedics started with:
X-rays
Nuclear Scans- I was radioactive for 2 days and had to stay away from children
Cat Scans
Emg’s
Electroencephalograms
Myelogram- I went into anaphylactic shock and almost died at LaGuardia hospital.
Skin grafts
Venuous flow tests, etc

No one knew what was wrong; I was put on Massive doses of painkillers:
180 pills of Soma a month
Vicodin ES 750mg ,TID
Voltaren
Celebrex
Viox
Flexoril
Percocet
You name it, I was on it and the burning would not stop, not for a minute, I was losing my mind. I was given a walker, leg braces, arm braces and could barely ambulate; the other problem was I couldn’t wear clothes below the waist. They didn’t know what to do and kept sending me home with more medicine. My nickname there was “BIONIC WOMAN”.

Eventually, I wanted to die just to stop the pain and a neurologist named DR. S.found me in the staircase crying at HIP and decided to do an exam. He felt sure and called my family in to announce that I had Multiple Sclerosis and 95% chances of never walking again; All this when I was only 25 years old.

I woke up one morning to my family practically breaking down the door, and as I crawled to answer it they stated” I had called everyone crying I didn’t want to live anymore and was saying goodbye to them during the night”. I have no recollection of that event. They also discovered I had bruises all over my body from apparently falling out of bed repeatedly, which I do not recall. My family didn’t know how to help as they were emigrants and were not familiar with the medical system. I had exhausted the $40,000.00 on medical fees; I worked to save from the age of 13 on. I had to sell my Maxima, which, I purchased new and was paid for to travel to school and back, and shortly I was going to be homeless.

I had to crawl to brush my teeth, crawl to try and shower, lived without toilet paper for days, clean towels etc. My family lived in Canada and they were feeling guilty as if they did something wrong; genetically. They were either in denial or sobbing.

Eventually, I started feeling that I couldn’t crawl to leave the house to see my Neurologist because there was not enough air and I couldn’t breath. My father offered to carry me; he said he would protect me. My family knew I was deteriorating being left in a bed for two years with no physical therapy and tons of medications. We were following the doctors’ orders. Finally, my family called the doctors to tell them this and I was told I needed a Psychiatrist and therapy, on top, I started having PANIC ATTACKS, which at that time, I didn’t know what they were and thought my life was ending. My family took me to NYU Hospital for a second opinion.

I underwent more testing and the Chief Resident Neurologist-Dr. J. felt I had a POST-PERIPHERAL MYELOPATHY FROM THE VACCINES AND WROTE IT IN HIS CHART. MY MEDICATIONS WERE SWITCHED WHICH CAUSED HORRIBLE WITHDRAWLS. THE NEW COCKTAIL WAS:
· TEGRATOL-BLOOD TESTS EVERY MONTH FOR THIS MEDICATION
· ANTI-DEPRESSANTS FOR PAIN AND DEPRESSION-WHICH I HAD SEVERE SIDE- EFFECTS TO AT LEAST TEN OF THEM, WHICH I TRIED, PALPATATION, CYANOSIS, SYNCOPE, GAINING 40 POUNDS, ETC
· OXAZEPAM FOR ANXIETY
· INDERAL

I BECAME A CRAWLING JUNKEY. MY FIVE YEAR RELATIONSHIP AND ENGAGEMENT ENDED, HE COULD NOT HANDLE SEEING ME IN A WHEEL CHAIR, MANY MEMBERS OF MY FAMILY COULD NOT FACE ME, I LOST ALL MY FRIENDS AS THEIR LIVES WENT ON AND MINE WAS DETERIORATING.

WE STARTED LOOKING FOR ALTERNATIVE TREATMENTS WHICH WERE COSTLY, I BEGAN A REGIME OF:
· CHIROPRACTIC-DR. F.- 5 times a week
· Accupuncture-2x a week, that was all my family could afford
· Brain scans and continuous scans of every part of my body.
· Referred to Orthopedic Surgeon-Dr. D.
· Started therapy with Judy for 5 years, which saved my life; Center for Psychotherapy and later B Center for Psychotherapy. Eventually my family went from being well-off to having to sell their furniture to pay for all of these treatments, let alone I had two other sisters that had to be cared for. They sold our house ALSO 111-04 76th Drive in Forest Hills, I cried for months, and years.

I had applied for disability and had been turned down two times which is there protocol. By the third time and appearing in front of the judge and representing myself, I was deemed disabled due to having Guillian Bar Syndrome, but not the usual motor loss; I had SENSORY PARASTHESIA AND DYSASTHESIA, WHICH WAS STILL NOT PART OF THE ICD-9 CLASSIFICATIONS OF CODES.

Dr. D(Orthopedic Surgeon) was treating me with multiple Trigger Point injections; I estimate to have had over five hundred and I had been on a cocktail of medications. Winters were hard because I was not able to wear pants, socks, use sheets or blankets etc. The Doctor, not knowing what else to do decided to try a cream called Zostrix HP, used for Diabetic burning or Shingle Patients, which reduced the burning and I could wear clothes again on my lower extremities, given time. I used to have to buy socks that cost Thirty dollars a pair due to their softness. This also made it easier to wear the braces since the fabric intensified the burning at that time. Finally, the orthopedic surgeon called me one night and said he couldn’t treat me anymore because all the treatments weren’t really helping, I had put on 40 pounds from all the injections and he could not do more than what he had done. A week later, he called to tell me he heard about a pain center and gave me the information. All of this went on for about 6 years before I found Dr. H, Double Diplomat, And Chronic Pain Anesthesiologist.

Life started getting better as I started treating with him. My medication cocktail became:
· Paxil 70 mg daily
· Vicodin ES 750 mg , TID
· Protonix- stomach was destroyed with all medications
· Oxazepam 15mg, TID
· Celebrex BID
· Zoxtrix HP daily, but could not shave legs to use this cream

My cocktail was now less and I began having Ambulatory Epidurals under anesthesia. In total over 8 more years I had:
· 14 ambulatory epidurals under anesthesia
· 2 Arthroscopic knee surgeries; Dr. B- Orthopedic Surgeon, Nassau County
· 300 Trigger point injections or more

It was after eight years of treatment with him, I was finally able to walk a block and stop to rest from the pain. Every few months, I was able to walk another block, and this continued until the year of 2000. Ten years later I finally could stand long enough to brush my teeth, partly through a shower, I could wear clothes. Thank god too, because we could not afford the Chiropractors and Acupuncture anymore and my father suffered a heart- attack and had a quintuple bypass surgery and he could not carry me or drive me anymore.

I NEEDED HELP AND STARTED GETTING INFORMED AS IT HAD BEEN TOO PAINFUL FOR ME IN THE PAST, AND EVEN WRITING THIS LETTER SETS ME INTO TEARS; I DO IT FOR MY LITTLE MIRACLE, MY FOUR YEAR OLD DAUGHTER, BECAUSE I KNOW I CAN NEVER GIVE HER THE LIFE I COULD HAVE. I CONTACTED OUR CONGRESSMAN, A. WEINER, QUEENS, NY, WHO I AM GRATEFUL TO AS HE CONTACTED HILLARY CLINTON, SUPTEINTENDANT SERIO- DEPARTMENT OF INSURANCE AND THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH; C. MURPHY, AND OTHERS WERE BEING FOUGHT BY ME REGARDING MY DISABILITY; ALL OF THE MIS-DIAGNOSES; NOW THAT INFORMATION WAS AVAILABLE, THIMEROSAL WAS A HOT TOPIC.

MY DOCTORS WERE WILLING TO TESTIFY AND IT WAS REPORTED TO THE CDC AND THE VACCINE INJURY HOTLINE ONCE THESE WERE CREATED. THERE WERENT THE LAWS WHEN I WAS INJURED THAT THE DOCTORS HAD TO REPORT IT TO THE CDC, THERE WAS NO VAERS, WHICH I AM STILL NOT A PART OF. IT APPEARS THAT THE QUALITY OF LIFE IS MORE IMPORTANT FOR A CHILD THAN AN ADULT. IT SHOULDN’T MATTER AT WHAT AGE THIS OCCURS, WHAT IS WORSE A CHILD WHO DOESN’T KNOW LIFE YET, OR SOMEONE’S LIFE THAT IS RIPPED APART?

LAWYERS THAN SAID THE DOCTORS WOULD BE FIRED IF THEY TESTIFIED AND THIS WAS COMMON PRACTICE with VAERS, AS THE GOVT WAS COVERING UP. MY DOCTORS WILL AND STILL WILL, IF NEED BE AFTER THE HORROR THEY SAW ME GO THROUGH. I HAVE SPOKEN TO THEM RECENTLY ABOUT THIS AND THEY ARE MORE THAN HAPPY TO TAKE THE RISK AS THEY FEEL A VIBRANT, BRAVE, YOUNG WOMAN WAS LED TO ALMOST DEATH, DISABILITY, AND POVERTY. YOU GET PENALIZED FOR GOING TO COLLEGE BECAUSE IF YOU DIDN’T CONTRIBUTE ENOUGH IN TAXES YOU CAN ONLY GET $400. A MONTH AND FOOD STAMPS, WHICH DO NOT COVER TOILET PAPER, SOAP, LAUNDRY DETERGENT, PAPER TOWELS, CLOTHING ETC.
I HAVE ALL THE DOCUMENTS SUPPORTING THESE LETTERS FROM Congress AND NOTHING WAS EVER DONE ABOUT IT FOR ME OR BY VAERS, CDC ETC. THE LETTERS KEPT STATING I NEEDED PERMISSION ON A FEDERAL LEVEL TO BE ACCEPTED TO THE VACCINE ADVERSE EFFECT FUND. NO ONE WAS EVER ABLE TO BE REACHED, ALTHOUGH IT WAS REPORTED AND I WAS GIVEN A SPECIFIC NUMBER TO REFER TO. IT APPEARS THAT THE VACCINES HAVE BEEN ADDED AND ARE BACK-DATED TO THIS PERIOD now. I HAVE BEEN INSTRUCTED TO WRITE THIS LETTER TO MERC PHARMACEUTICALS LEGAL DEPARTMENT TO NOTIFY THEM AND TO ASK FOR COMPENSATION TO AVOID LAUNCHING A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT. I RECEIVED A PHONE CALL FROM A WOMAN NAMED ANGELIQUE, WHO STATED SHE WAS THE PERSONAL ASSISTANT TO HILLARY CLINTON AND IF THIS DID NOT RESOLVE ANYTHING, HILLARY CLINTON WOULD BE HANDLING THIS AS A PERSONAL MATTER AND never did anything or answered my calls afterwards.

I AM STILL DISABLED TO DATE AND HAVE A FOUR YEAR OLD TO SUPPORT. I HAVE HAD FOURTEEN AMBULATORY SURGERIES, 3 SURGERIES, AND HAVE TAKEN THOUSANDS OF PRESCRIBED MEDICATIONS FOR THIS WHEN MY LIFE SUDDENLY CHANGED AT THE EARLY AGE OF TWENTYFIVE, AFTER ONE YEAR OF ENTERING THIS SCHOOL AFTER COMPLETING MY B.S. DEGREE.
IN ADDITION, IN 2000, I HAD MY GALL BLADDER REMOVED AT NORTH SHORE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, FOREST HILLS, NY BY DR. ALANDEWI; WHO STATES THAT I HAD BILIARY DYSKENESIA DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF MEDICATION I HAD BEEN ON FOR YEARS. HE FELT IT WAS VERY RARE FOR SOMEONE MY AGE TO HAVE THIS.
I HAVE SUFFERED MANY YEARS NOW AND CONTINUE TO DO SO.I AM BEGGING FOR A CHANCE TO AFFORD MY YOUNG CHILD A BETTER QUALITY OF LIFE AS I LIVE ON A FIXED INCOME, A SMALL ONE FROM SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY. I AM A SINGLE MOTHER, AND HAD TO MOVE TO MONTREAL, CANADA, TO BE NEAR MY FAMILY AS I NEED THEIR HELP IN RAISING HER DUE TO MY LIMITED ABILITIES. SHE IS MY REASON FOR LIVING AND TO ME A MIRACLE FOR ALL THE HELL I HAVE BEEN THROUGH. I DO NOT WANT HER TO BE RAISED IN POVERTY, SHE ALREADY SEES ME SUFFER, TAKE MEDICATION, CONSTANT DOCTORS’ APPOINTMENTS, BRACES, ETC. MY LIFE WAS STOLEN FROM ME I WANT AND BEG FOR THE CHANCE TO GIVE HER A GOOD LIFE. I AM NOT JUST A NUMBER. MY NAME IS CATHERINE HAMON, BS, CRA, AAS, MA, AS I CONTINUED MY STUDIES WHEN I AM ABLE TO AND CLEAR ENOUGH SINCE THE MEDICATION MAKES YOU FORGETFUL, LACK OF ENERGY, ETC.
MY CURRENT DIAGNOSES ARE:
GUILLIAN BAR SYNDROME
MYELOPATHY
FIBROMYALGIA WITH MYOFACIAL RADICULOPATHY
MY CURRENT MEDICATION REGIME:
PAXIL 70MG DAILY FOR BURNING AND ANTI-DEPRESSANT PROPERTIES
LYRICA 50MG, TID-NEUROMUSCULAR
ALERTEC-MODOFANIL – 100MG, BID-ENERGY;ANTI-NARCOLEPTIC AND EXPENSIVE
CLONAZEPAM, 50MG, BID
VICODIN 750MG, TID

I AM NOW BEING EVALUATED BY HOSPITAL-in Canada-CHRONIC PAIN CENTER BY:
DR. F-RHEUMOTOLOGIST AND DR. G; WHO ARE EXTREMELY CONCERNED ABOUT THE MIX OF MEDICATIONS NY HAS ME ON AND THAT THE SIDE –EFFECTS MAY BE HORRIFIC AND I AM UNDERGOING EXAMS AGAIN.
I AM NOW FUNCTIONAL, WITH MEDICATIONS, BUT MY CONDITION VARIES WITH WEATHER ETC, AND SOME DAYS ARE MUCH HARDER THAN OTHERS. I WILL BE ON MEDICATION THE REST OF MY LIFE WHICH I FOUGHT VERY HARD NOT TO BE ON. I FINALLY CHOSE PERHAPS A SHORTER LIFE BUT A MORE FUNCTIONALONE.
WHOEVER READS THIS, PLEASE FIND THE COMPASSION IN YOUR HEART TO HELP. I DID NOT ASK FOR THIS AND WILL SUFFER IN PAIN PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY UNTIL I DIE. I AM NOW FORTYTWO YEARS OLD.I AM TEMPORARILY RESIDING IN CANADA FOR ONE YEAR AS I CANNOT TAKE CARE OF MYSELF AT TIMES AND MY OLD-AGED PARENTS HELP ME.
I BEG AND ASK THAT YOU FIND THE MERCY, COMPASSION AND KINDNESS IN YOUR HEART TO DO SOMETHING TO COMPENSATE ME COMPENSATE ME FOR WHAT I HAVE BEEN THROUGH AND WILL CONTINUE TO UNTIL I DIE.

MY MAIN REASON IS TO GIVE MY DAUGHTER, BRIANNA, A CHANCE OF HAVING A GOOD LIFE, WITH SECURITY. IF SOMETHING HAPPENS TO ME, SO SHE CAN GO TO SCHOOL AND COLLEGE, SO WE DON’T HAVE TO WAIT ON FOOD LINES ANYMORE OR TAKE FURNITURE FROM THE GARBAGE ANYMORE. I BEG, AND ASK AS A MOTHER, WHO WANTS TO SEE HER CHILD NOT SUFFER FOR THE HORRORS THAT HAPPENED TO ME. IT IS MY RIGHT, AND AN OBLIGATION FROM YOUR COMPANY TO DO SO AS YOU ARE A BIG PART OF THE CAUSE. I ASK FOR WHAT IS FAIR, I TRUST IN GOD, AND HE SEES ALL AND I KNOW THAT JUSTICE WILL PREVAIL.

I CANNOT AFFORD LIFE INSURANCE; APT INSURANCE ETC. PLEASE FIND IT IN YOUR HEART TO DO THE RIGHT THING. I COULD HAVE APPROACHED THIS WITH A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT; I HAVE NOT. I HAVE COME TO YOU TO SEEK RETRIBUTION FOR WHAT I HAVE SUFFERED THROUGH AND WISH ONLY THAT YOU MAY NEVER KNOW THE HORRORS OF PAIN THE BRAIN CAN CREATE.

YOU HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE TO BE IN A BETTER POSITION THAN MYSELF. THIS DID NOT HAPPEN TO ME BECAUSE OF GENETICS, OR ON ITS OWN. IT WAS INDUCED BY THE VACCINES THEREFORE; IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY SINCE YOU CREATED THESE. AGAIN, IT DESTROYED MANY LIVES; I AM ONE PERSON ASKING, PRIVATELY, WITHOUT INCLUDING THE OTHER CLASS MEMBERS.

I HAVE SPOKEN TO MANY LAWYERS WHO ADVISE ME DIFFERENTLY BUT I AM TRYING TO HAVE FAITH IN YOUR COMPANY AND IN DOING THE RIGHT THING FOR ME AS WELL AS FOR THE LIFE OF AN INNOCENT FOUR YEAR OLD. DON’T CONDEMN HER TO A LIFE THAT WAS BESTOWED UPON ME. I WAS A LEADER AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE IF I HAVE TO. MY VOICE WILL BE HEARD, BOOKS WILL BE WRITTEN.

I ASK FOR COMPENSATION FOR THE EIGHTEEN YEARS OF SUFFERING AND THE REST OF MY LIFE ON MEDICATION. I DON’T KNOW HOW LONG I WILL HAVE TO LIVE BUT I WANT TO KNOW MY DAUGHTER WILL NOT HAVE TO WORRY. I HAVE ENOUGH DEGREES THAT I SHOULD AND COULD HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL BUT YOUR VACCINES TOOK THAT AWAY. I ASK THAT YOU FAVOR MY REQUEST FOR MY FAMILY, MY PARENTS AND THEIR SUFFERING THROUGH THIS, AND MOST OF ALL FOR THE REMAINDER OF MY LIFE. I TRUST YOUR FAIRNESS, INTEGRITY, CARING FOR THE LIFE OF A HUMAN BEING.


THANK YOU, FOR YOUR ATTENTION AND UNDERSTANDING.

I am a young 25 year old Australian girl. I can tell you about me days before Gardasil! I was diagnosed with Cin III in 2001 for which I have currently had several LOOP excisions in the hope to prevent cancerous cells forming. Although my experience with HPV virus was a pre cancerous stage I could barely imagine how people with the CANCER must feel! I have been told at 23 years of age that my surgery has effected my chances in retaining a pregnancy past ten weeks (I have to have a cervix suture to prevent miscarraige)! And although this sounds like a reason not to have the surgery.. i would rather still be alive today and cancer free!

So much debate on the negatives of this drug yet ... every drug has the potential to do harm! I bet a majority of people in the world today who smoke dont realise they have a 97% risk of dying from their drug compared to a 1.7% death rate in HPV vaccinated student who have been studied. A large majority of the deaths observed under the study were not even gardasil related.. 45% of the 17 in total (male and female) actually died from cars accidents but as they were study cases their deaths are noted as a possible "side affect!!!" People please research this in depth and use scientifically proven sites to gain your information. Not just the here say of the media!

Remember also that this vaccine only protects against 4 strains (there are hundreds of strains of this virus) Being that this vaccinates against 90% of the cancer causing strains i know what option i would take..

Without it..thousands may die from cervical cancer. With it... well a few rashes and faints(who doesnt faint at the sight of a needle?) that any other drug of environmental factor may be the cause of
