By Alisa Neathery regarding her son Bently
“On this day, April 5, 2012
I made the biggest mistake of my life.
I did what I thought I had to do, to be a good mom. To not get into trouble for medical neglect by not vaccinating my son.
Against my better judgement, against what my instincts were telling me, I allowed him to be vaccinated.
I only consented to the scheduled 2 month dose.
The doctor made the decision with out me to play catch up by over vaccinating my son.
The scary part is I had no idea how much he was giving him.
Not I can look back and see why it took them 30 min to come back in to give the shots.
I wonder if any of the nurses questioned the doctors orders on the massive amount he was giving my son?
In 5 days my son will be dead…
All because of a ignorant decision I made.
Had I known then what I know now I would haven’t vaccinated my son. It’s not mandatory now. It was not mandatory then. I wish I knew that. I wish I had done more research than what I had.
Yes I looked into vaccines some… but most definitely not enough.
I will never forget any of this. It’s etched into my brain for life, as well as the chunk of my heart that will always be missing…”

by August Owens regarding her daughter Emery Star Owens, Published on Mar 9, 2017
“Emery Star Owens was born on April 6th 2015. She was 4 week premature but perfectly healthy. She was in the nicu due to jaundice and to check for infection (which she didn’t have) while there she received the vitamin k and hep b vaccine. She was 4lb 1oz. We went home with a perfectly healthy, happy baby. A week after we got home we went to the dr, and they changed Emery from breastfeeding due to blood pressure issues to formula. She continued to be a happy baby. She was just tiny. Hadn’t even hit the growth charts. We thought our life was perfect a healthy big brother and healthy beautiful baby girl. On June 20th Emery was 10 weeks old, we went in for her 2 month well check up. She was given hep b, ipv 13, dtap, and roto oral. All which should not be given to a preemie until they are their gestational age or the correct weight for the growth chart. The following week my baby changed completely. The look in her eyes changes, like she was disconnected. I believe it was encephalopathy, which is a neurological disorder that can be caused by vaccines, I have done studies and there’s so many babies who after vaccines had that same look and then died from “sids”. She cried constantly, we could not put her down at all. She went from eating 6 oz at a time to 2 oz if that. After calling the dr to talk about these issues I was told that we again needed to change to a new formula. On June 28th I woke up to my precious daughter not breathing, after doing cpr until the ambulance got there, she was pronounced dead at the hospital. My daughter was killed by vaccines. Her autopsy said she died from a pulmonary hemorrhage, which is also a side effect of dtap and hep b, esp when given together, and to a preemie.”
