This beautiful child was named Madyson Williams. God rest her little soul and comfort her parents, who tried to do right by her and ended up losing her. No, we don't want to see children dying of preventable childhood diseases, don't bother us with that canard. We also don't want to see an ounce of prevention turn into a pound of death.

The parents of 1-year old Madyson Williams will receive $250,000 from the government for the death of their daughter.
Garry and Rachel Williams claimed the Mumps, Measles, Rubella Vaccine or MMR killed their daughter.
Madyson got the vaccine at the Pediatric Center in Springfield on May 12, 2006. Her parents submitted medical evidence that the MMR vaccine is the reason Madyson died 6 days later.
Attorneys for the Department of Health and Human Services Friday settled with the family for liability.
Calls to the government office were not returned as of news time.
