Vaccine Awakening on Gardasil Death & Brain Damage: A National Tragedy

One less Managing Editor's Note:  One year ago on February 22, a beautiful young woman by the name of Jessica Ericzon died after having received a Gardasil vaccination. The photo on the left is her mother's Jeep.  Note the license plate. "One Less." As in daughter. One less daughter.  The people being injured by vaccines are not statistics or epidemiological "dots" on a map. They are not expendable characters in a mythical battle against disease. They are daughters like Jessica, infant sons like Ian Gromowski. They are our children.  Thank you to Lisa, Jessica's Mom for allowing us to use her photo. Lisa is a Mother Warrior. Kim

The tragic story of Gardasil vaccine is one that is playing out real time in the homes of trusting parents, who thought they were doing the right thing to try to make their daughters "one less," and in the 21st century cyberspace forum of public opinion as well as on television. On Feb. 6, CBS-TV Evening News released NVIC's new report on Gardasil vaccine risks.

My autistic child had an MRI and it showed choline creatine reversal. I did research. It appears this could be a brain lesion caused by a vaccine injury. No wonder medical insurance doesn't want to address this.

I always stay in touch with the latest news about vaccines and medicines because like many others in this country I'm not trusting the companies that release these drugs and vaccines on the market. What bothers me is the confidence these companies usually show. We're not their testing ground. This has to get understood!


Please review this very important study from Caroline Cox:
"Boric acid and borates".Please inform friends and family.
Please protect your daughters and sons from this garbage gardasil.(Boric acid times three doses contained in gardasil
together with polysorbates,aluminum,yeast and viral particles and other contaminants like rDNA.)Danger Gardasil
may impair fertility.Population reduction big pharma style.

Depakote Lawsuit

My fiance started the shots when she was 19, much to my disapproval as I had read about the possible adverse effects and risks associated with the vaccine. She had started getting the shots prior to telling me about it, and when she did I was very upset and basically implored her not to get the 2nd and 3rd shots because I was concerned about her health. Fortunately, after a very spirited debate and me showing her some eye opening reading material online, she made the decision to cancel her appointments to get her 2nd and 3rd shots. She is 23 now, and luckily wasn't effected negatively in any way by the first vaccine. We have decided to deeply research all vaccines that are available and recommended for our children, and we are on the same page as far as staying away from any unnecessary vaccinations or medications for our family. Working in the legal arena, and seeing all of the defective drug lawsuits that come through the office has made me lose all faith in the FDA and its ability (or willingness) to protect consumers from harmful drugs.

My 16 yr old daughter was also injured by Gardasil. She had 2 of the 3 injections (Jan 9th and March 9th, 2009). Before Gardasil, she was a happy, healthy and vibrant teenager. Since Gardasil she is sick every day of her life. She has dizziness, overall weakness, numbness and tingling in both legs and left arm, back pain, neck pain, pressure headaches, vision problems, breathing problems, chest pains, racing heartbeats, brain fog, stomach problems, nausea, diarhea, weight loss, hair loss, jerking all over spells...the list goes on and on.

She was an A/B student but failed her 10th grade year because she was too sick to retain what she was trying to learn (brain fog). She no longer has the energy to go off with her friends. Most days she lays in bed, in pain.

This just doesnt happen to a healthy teenager!! And it just doesnt happen to THOUSANDS of other girls with no connection except they all had the Gardasil vaccine.

It doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure this one out.

Please educate yourself as much as you can before you allow anyone to push this unproven and unsafe vaccine on your daughter! The guilt is overwhelming from a mothers' standpoint! I thought I was doing something to protect my daughter. Instead, I allowed the doctor to inject poison into my child and take away her life!

These 'side effects' are NOT rare! They are happening every day to literally hundreds of thousands of young girls after receiving Gardasil. The numbers in VAERS is estimated to only be between 1-10% of the true numbers! Try asking some of us moms who have to deal with these horrible side effects every day if we consider it to be RARE!

Everyone should look at the other side of the fence and research this. There are thousands of girls that are coming down with strange illnesses, paralysis, gran mal seizures, etc. after receiving Gardasil.

We are now getting reports of girls as young as age 9 that are breaking out with genital warts and severe cases of cervical cancer AFTER receiving Gardasil. Some of these girls/women did not initially have any side effects from the vaccine.

There are perfectly healthy girls all of a sudden come down with all of these strange sicknesses (some that I cant even pronounce) after getting jabbed with Gardasil. All within hours/days/weeks?

Just like Merck's 'wonderful' Vioxx...what will it take? How many dead/injured before someone takes notice?

The doctor that literally pushed this vaccine on us at a routine doctor visit told us that there were no side effects except for soreness or redness at injection site.

She also told us that it would protect her from a whole LIST of things! I had seen the commercials but had not researched it.

As a matter of fact, I never really THOUGHT about vaccines until my daughter suddenly started having all of these strange health issues.

She was ALWAYS a healthy child, happy and outgoing, active and just a joy to be around.

Now, she is a totally different child. She is always sick..always in pain..and cries a LOT, so scared that she will die in her sleep from the breathing problems. She describes it as breathing through a blanket or that an elephant is sitting on her chest.

She has SO many of the exact same symptoms as all of the other girls that have been injured.

It is NOT a coincidence! All of these Gardasil girls have the same symptoms, some worse than others, but the bottom line is the one thing they all have in common is Gardasil.

These symptoms are NOT in their heads!

My daughter started having dizziness, overall weakness, pain and numbness in both legs and left arm BEFORE we found out about any of these other girls having the same issues.

When I called her doctor that gave her the vaccine (as soon as she started with these symptoms) she said it was NOT the Gardasil vaccine that is causing it. How could she be so sure? This is such a NEW vaccine...a DANGEROUS and UNNECESSARY vaccine!

HPV is not an STD (research this!).

Cervical cancers have gone down 70% since the PAP smear came along.

This is NOT an epidemic! Why are they mandating this vaccine for as young as 9 year old girls for a vaccine that doesnt even do what they claim it will do?

Girls are now coming down with cervical lesions and HPV AFTER receiving Gardasil! I'm talking about healthy young girls that did NOT have these things BEFORE getting Gardasil.

Young girls dropping dead within hours of getting the vaccine and they think we are all stupid enough to believe it was a huge tumor that was in her heart and had spread to her lungs? (I'm speaking of the 14 yr old that just recently died after receiving Cervarix).

If that young and healthy and active young girl really DID have this so called huge tumor, she would have had symptoms. A tumor like that doesnt just up and kill it's host without a 'wasting away and painful period'.

That is a complete cover-up!

Just like the young girl that has been paralyzed and hospitalized for the last year, Ashleigh Cave. Because her mother was trying to speak out and find out what exactly happened to her daughter, they have now placed that child under protective orders! To shut the mother up?

This is all about $$$$$ at the expense of our young daughters (and now sons) health and lives!

It is an outrage!!!

And this website:


There, you can see other girls' stories and their pictures..there is also a memorial document with pictures and stories of young girls that have died after receiving Gardasil.

Educate Before You Vaccinate!!

Rosemary Mathis, North Carolina

My 13 year old daughter was injured by Gardasil and completely disabled for the past year. Merck got it right when they used the slogan "One Less" for Gardasil. Because of Gardasil, my daughter was "One Less". She was "One Less Student", "One Less Active Child", "One Less in every aspect of her life". Take it from a mother who has spent the past year sitting by my child's bedside wondering if she would die in her sleep. INVESTIGATE BEFORE YOU VACCINATE. DO NOT trust your doctor to make this decision. If you want to understand Merck's role in the medical community, investigate some of their former wonderdrugs such as VIOXX and then marvel at how many people died from it before it was pulled off the market. The CDC AND FDA need to do their job and get this off the market before more children are harmed. The public is not aware of VAERS and the #'s are grossly understated. I have had to tell my child's doctors about VAERS and make them file reports or she would not be one of the current statistics in VAERS. Even then, her information has not been entered correctly so I know that VAERS is not what it should be. Please do not let this happen to your child. There is NO WAY that I will get my son this vaccine. My daughters story along with the stories of many other girls who have been injured by Gardsil are located at http://www.profitableharm.com/pdf/Gardasil%20Injuries.pdf. A memorial page for the young ladies whose lives were taken by Gardasil is located at http://www.profitableharm.com/pdf/Memorial%20Document.01-09-09.pdf. How many more will have to die before someone will take notice. This vaccine needs to be pulled off the market.

Dear Jody, I had reviewed sevaral research studies. It appears that Gardasil is responsible for your daughter's illness.You can connect with the other mothers whose daughter's experiencing the same symptoms.
I will do a database search based on the information you have provided. I will connect with you through e-mail. Someone need to form a powerful parents group and fight for more research and investigation,otherwise we will have another disaster like Vioxx.It appears
that the ingredients with the help of Polysorbate 80 (detergent)and L-histidine
(Yokel:Blood brain barrier flux of aluminum)
through facilitated diffusion carried the
aluminum and boric acid through the blood brain barrier.My suspicion is that the girls had suffered an acute aluminum and boric acid poisoning.Stay strong, all the best to Victoria.Big Pharma will never admit mistakes or problems.It is not their interest to show that the product is not safe.They will deny everything as long as possible.Have your daughter checked for heavy metals. Stay away from food products that contain the vaccine ingredients: aluminum,polysorbate 80,yeast.Work with a naturopath,if you can.Lot of the doctors have reduced themselves and became drug pushers for Pharma.Many doctors would turn in their grave to see what happened to this formerly well respected profession.Stay strong,get some help and support for yourself and Victoria.

Concerned Professional

36 death reports now filed in the VAERS database. Over 13667 adverse events reported. How long this aluminum,detergent and pesticide garbage vaccine allowed to stay on the market? Is your FDA and CDC will wait until the bodies and the lawsuits
pile up before they stop this useless vaccine? How could you treat your beautiful
children like lab rats Polysorbate 80 enhanced by boric acid can open the blood brain barrier (lesion) and allow other toxins to enter the central nervous system.


Properly prescribed medications kill 250,000 people per year. Yes, that's 250,000 human lives! You know why govt. doesn't do anything about it?? It's called MONEY!! Pharmaceutical companies pay a load of money to our govt. for them to turn a blind-eye.

My daughter, Victoria, has been having non-epileptic seizures since March 31, 2008. Doctors seem to believe that my daughter's seizures are stress induced and will not relate them to Gardasil.

Here is some history. I will be as brief as possible. My daughter had her first Gardasil vaccination November 2007. Her second vaccination was in the beginning of February 2008. Immediately after her second vaccination, Victoria experienced severe diarrhea and was nauseous for about eight weeks. On March 31, 2008, she had her first seizure. After several emergency room visits, she was diagnosed with conversion disorder. My daughter has treated with many neurologists, all of whom will not relate my daughter's seizures to Gardasil. Meanwhile, there quite a few hundred people that I have found over the internet through my numerous postings and through Erin Brockovich, and their daughters are all experiencing the same symptoms, which occurred after the Gardasil vaccination. My daughter has had CT scans, MRI's, MRA's, EEG's, blood work and was hospitalized at an epilepsy center for two separate weeks in 2008. Iinitially, she was put on many different seizure medications. All tests have normal results. Although her SED rate seems to be high each time and she did have protein in her urine which doctors do not seem concerned about..

Doctors recommended that my daughter treat with a psychiatrist and I complied. However, the psychiatrist did not believe that my daughter had conversion disorder. My daughter has seen several neurologists, a psychiatrist, psychologist, several neuropsychologists, an immunologist, several infectious disease doctors, and also treated a wellness center.

My daughter currently experiences fhe following: non-epileptic seizures, migraines, fainting, tremors, twitches, numbness, staring episodes, tingling, eye pain, joint pain, neck pain , memory loss, confusion, regression and chronic fatigue . She has not been in school since September 2008 -- she should be a senior in high school. Her teachers helped her to complete her junior year by sending work home. My daughter can never be left home alone. She can't go to school, go out with her friends or work or has little "normalcy" in her life.
I do not know which way to turn for help. We have seen so many doctors and I can't seem to find anyone willing to help my daughter except for one psychologist, who "talks" to her to try to work through her stress. I continue to take my daughter to the psychologist although I do not believe that my daughter's symptoms are stress related. There are so many other girls who have the same symptoms as my daughter and the one thing all the girls seem to have in common is the Gardasil vaccination.
Although, we are on a fixed income, I have expended many thousands of dollars in an effort to seek medical opinions. Although we do have medical insurance, it is very difficult to find doctors willing to treat my daughter who accept our HMO.
We are in desperate need of medical treatment for my daughter. I have run out of ideas, finances have dwindled and I do not know which direction to turn.
Your thoughts are most appreciated.
Thank you.

There is no way I will get my daughter this shot. There is some very good info about Gardasil side effects and news. I use this site to check out any drug before I take it to see if there are any major side effects or lawsuits. http://www.ennislaw.com Gardasil among several other well known drugs are on this site. Hope this will help!


Gardisal recalled in Spain after two girls fall ill: http://www.newsinferno.com/archives/4738#more-4738


love your website Barbara, it's the first one I came across when I became interested in this issue. We are all lucky to have dedicated people like you working for our side. Can't wait to see what happens from Spain with regard to Gardasil. Pharmaceutical co.s and their partners in crime (AAP etc.) have got very greedy and their greed will do them in, sadly not without human cost.

Carolyn M.

DAN doctors and some other doctors care. For all the others, "first do no harm" appears to translate to "first do no harm to the vaccine program."

Oh dear, I'm so **baffled!**

You can pretend that the parents of ASD kids are deluded but how do you explain away the direct reaction to a vaccine such as the Gardasil. This is what happens when you fudge vaccine trials and have an ineffective FDA at the helm.

Meanwhile doctors continue to be BAFFLED. They can take their BAFFLED states to their tombs.


Excellent article, Barbara.

This Gardasil fiasco, much like the vaccine scandals, saddens me. These children are getting sick, and the Doctors who are supposed to be caring for them don't care. First do no harm, right?

I can only hope that their sacrifice will bring to light the corruption that plagues the pharmaceutical industry. Perhaps then, they and their families will find justice. And then, perhaps it will pave the way to justice for all of us.

Cheers to the brave souls who have suffered due to the greed and negligence of those in power. Your pain and sacrifice will always be remembered.
