Note: Doctors are ready to blame anything except the vaccines they administer when a patient becomes chronically sick. Watch this video about how a 13 year old girl's life changed dramatically after "just one" dose of Gardasil. "No no no it couldn't be the vaccine." Except when it is. See an interview with Sara at the bottom of this post. KRS

Sara Sotomayor's mother tells her story at "VaxXed" in Pittsburgh. "She was injured by the Gardasil vaccine on October 17, 2006. She had just one dose of the Gardasil vaccine. She was 13 at the time. She’s 23 now, so we’re coming up on the ten year anniversary.
“As soon as the vaccine needle left her arm, she was squealing and crying. She said it felt like an aluminum bat hit her arm.
“We were, of course, reassured by the nurse at the doctor’s office that this is normal. Particularly the Gardasil vaccine, this is normal to have a lot of pain at the injection site. …
“Two days later, the pain is still there. She’s really complaining a lot, and she’s not a complainer. …So I called the doctor’s office and I said what was going on. Again they reassured me this is natural, this is normal, don’t worry about it. Just give it a little time. And so we did, we gave it time.
“I didn’t know anything about vaccine injury. …The following days and weeks what ended up happening was she had severe nosebleeds—like gushing. Her gait started to change when she walked. She kind of favored one side. She was extremely pale. …
“So when I would call back and I would explain what’s going on, they were like, ‘Well, you know, it’s probably her allergies, and it was ragweed season. Then the next event that happened was at school they would have gym only half of the year, so it was her turn to have gym for this part of the year. She came home and said, oh, my neck is really sore and I can’t move it….
“It got to the point where she was at the school nurse at first a couple of days a week, and then it was every day. She had to have people walk her to the nurse because she thought she was going to pass out. She was drenched in sweat.
“About two months after the vaccine she wakes up and her knee is about three times the size it should be. She didn’t do anything. She didn’t do anything to cause her knee to be swollen, so I called our family doctor again. …She was a bit annoyed that I called. She told me I was overreacting. Knees swell up; it just happens sometimes like that. At that moment I said, you’re done. …
“Took her to the emergency room. They drained her knee, they did some tests. Saw like an RA factor so they thought, oh, we’ve got an auto-immune problem. We’ve got rheumatoid arthritis. You need to go to an arthritis center. …
“We went to like sixteen different specialists, and everywhere we took my daughter Sara, I said, ‘Do you think it was the vaccine? Because like she was perfect, she was rollerblading, and playing basketball, soccer, and now she can barely get out of bed.’
“And everywhere it was like, no, no, no. It couldn’t be the vaccine. Finally we brought her to a specialist--And oh this is the other thing, when you have an auto-immune problem, they want to push more vaccines on you…— But I just had this little voice in my head to say, why don’t you ask? So I said, ‘This all happened because of Gardasil. She was perfectly fine, what do you know about it?’
“He said, ‘Well, I’ve heard some bad things about it. …About four percent of girls that are getting this vaccine at this time are presenting with arthritic type conditions, and I wouldn’t recommend her getting anymore.’…
“After about six months of my daughter being on all these drugs, her health deteriorated even further. …”
Sara’s mother learned of a homeopathic MD in Arizona, and “basically, he saved her life.”
By the time her mother got her to the doctor in Arizona, she could no longer walk. Sara was thirteen when she got the Gardasil vaccine, and by age fourteen, she could no longer do anything for herself. “She’s in a bed 24/7. …She has metabolic issues. She has to eat eight times a day, every ninety minutes. …The reality is, she hasn’t been able to walk in four and a half years.”
Sara’s life is constant hardship.
“She is in tremendous pain. Probably the first eight years of this, the pain was so excruciating that I couldn’t brush her hair, it hurt to have clothes on—to put clothes on her, she would cry like—the pain that you just couldn’t believe. I can’t even believe what I’ve seen with my eyes as a parent, the devastation and the pain that she has lived. …”
“It’s like, we stepped outside, and my kid got hit by an eighteen wheeler. I saw who did it, I took their license plate number, I know who committed the crime, they’re not being tried….”
