By Laura Hayes
I had a spur-of-the-moment idea the other day… make a video of Ryan, who was severely injured and permanently disabled by his "routine" childhood vaccinations, to give you a visual as to what vaccine injury looks like in a "young man", who is in actuality a young child now encased in a man's body. He is but one of many similar young men in his age group, young men (and young women) who have suffered catastrophic brain, nervous-system, immune-system, and GI-system damage from that which their parents innocently and unknowingly allowed to be done to them by their child's "doctor" without being given even an iota of informed consent.
I, like so many other parents of vaccine-injured children, spend my days sharing our story, and encouraging other parents, and people of all ages, as strongly as I possibly can, to educate before you vaccinate. Once you allow a vaccine to enter your body, or your chid's, or in today's world, your fetus', you can't get it back out. Rather, you have just allowed and unleashed a cataclysmic chain of events to begin unfolding, whose results will now begin to reveal themselves over the course of a lifetime, and whose results will be exacerbated by additional insults in the forms of more vaccines, GMO-laden foods, widespread pesticide use, widespread use of toxic cleaners, tainted water, etc. (Remember, it took decades for it to be revealed that the millions of SV-tainted polio vaccines of the late 1950s have led to many of today's soft-tissue cancers in middle-aged adults, for but one example.) I, along with so many others, am beyond passionate about urging others to do their own research about the dangers and inefficacies of vaccines, and about the fallacy of the theory behind vaccination in the first place…we are borderline fanatical. Why? Because we live with the results of vaccine injury day in and day out. We know firsthand the devastation it leaves in its wake. We know that no one will be held liable or accountable (not the vaccine-maker and not the one who administered the vaccine), that the parent will be solely responsible for the vaccine-injured child from that day forward. We know the battles that lie ahead for any parent of a vaccine-injured child…with school districts, with doctors, with state agencies, with insurance companies, with the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, with community members who are unsympathetic, the list goes on. We want to spare other children from what was done to our children, and from what our children, and our families, endure on a daily basis…with no end in sight.
To that end, at this time of year when we make an extra effort and take extra time to pause to give thanks, I am hoping that you will give thanks for our efforts which have hopefully made a difference in your child's life, and in your family's life. Perhaps because of our efforts, your children have been spared from vaccine injury. Perhaps because of our efforts, you have learned to do your own medical research, be it regarding vaccines, cancer treatments, prescription medicines, doctors, alternative medicines and alternative practitioners, etc. Perhaps because of our efforts you are now savvy to the lying propaganda that is spewed at us in every single form of media. Perhaps because of our efforts you have become more sympathetic to those in your neighborhood, at your school, at your church, and in your community who have been injured by vaccination. Perhaps because of our efforts, you now speak out to educate and warn others.
Perhaps because of our efforts, you are very thankful this holiday season and would like to express your gratitude by "paying it backward" to those who've been "the canaries in the coal mine", the warnings to others so that they could avoid the dangers…canaries like our son, Ryan. If you have benefitted because of our hard-earned knowledge, then please consider "paying it backward". Perhaps because of our efforts, you would also like to "pay it forward" and keep the truth circulating ever more widely to spare others from vaccine injury. In either case, I would like to put forth two wonderful ways to both "pay it backward and pay it forward" at once, by making a donation to The Age of Autism blog and to Families for Early Autism Treatment. Below are links to both should you be interested in supporting one or both of these wonderful groups…one whose mission is to daily report on autism and vaccine-related issues, and the other whose mission is to help children affected by "autism" and their families. Both are excellent at what they do, and both help many.
With thanks for all of you who are interested in questioning, learning, sharing truth, and protecting the health and welfare of children, a very Happy Thanksgiving to you! I hope you enjoy and are moved by the video of Ryan (it is about 10 min. long). Please bear in mind that Ryan has received non-stop, intensive behavioral services for almost 18 of his 20 years (tragically, this is not the case for the majority of those with "autism"), and they have made all the difference to both his quality of life, and to our family's quality of life. Despite nearly 18 years of non-stop intervention, he still will not ever live independently, hold down a "real" job, get married, or have children, but hopefully, he will have a life in which he is content, in which he keeps learning, in which he can maintain the appropriate behavioral, social, and academic skills we have worked so hard to teach him so he can continue to access his community and beyond, a life in which we work to keep him as healthy as he can be, and in which he is safe, protected from the harm and abuse that so many like him will suffer at some point in their lives.
