This is my cousin, Heather (Falconer) Miller and her husband Cory’s, daughter, Lauren.
This is Lauren’s Story, she’s one of many Gardasil victims.
(There was a video out of the interview, but i cannot find it anymore)
“On November 22, 2016 our lives were changed forever. My healthy 13 year old was given a flu and HPV vaccination. I declined the HPV shot 4 times because I had a bad feeling about it and had read about healthy teens developing autoimmune diseases following this particular shot. We were told (by our pediatrician) nothing like that ever happens & that those girls were already going to get sick. “You can’t believe anything you read on the internet”, she said. My pediatrician insisted that she would get throat cancer from kissing if I did not give her this vaccine. I was NOT given INFORMED CONSENT, and will regret letting them give my daughter the Gardasil 9 shot for the rest of my life. After pulling her medical records I learned it was her 37th injection and the 51st vaccine that had been put into her body since birth.
Before the shot, Lauren was an elite athlete and an honor student. She played soccer on a highly competitive, regional level soccer team. She also played tennis, guitar, was active in our church, straight A student, and was a member of the national junior honor society. She had big dreams and a bright future ahead of her.�
After the shot, Lauren had an adverse reaction. She developed chronic fatigue and head-pain…every second of every day. She also told me, “Mom”, my brain isn’t working right”. She was trying to keep count of reps she was doing for a training exercise and her brain was unable to remember the numbers. She was diagnosed with mitochondria damage and still struggles with her short-term memory and processing information. Her headaches are usually between a 5-8. Ten being the most pain you can imagine or for example a bear tears your arm off. Nothing takes her pain away, not even prescription meds. We have tried everything under the sun these past 3 years to try to heal her body. She says the fatigue bothers her the worst. I asked her what it felt like and she said its like she hasn’t slept in 500 days. The vaccine also triggered her body to launch an attack on itself. At one point her ANA (Antinuclear Antibody) levels were 1:1280, which is an extremely alarming rate. She has since developed autoimmunity of her thyroid and it is likely that she will continue to develop multiple autoimmune disorders because of her reaction. She now has a 500% increased risk of cancer (based on studies) because of the cell damage she has endured. �
Lauren can no longer participate in any sports or extra activities. She can’t even play the guitar anymore because it makes her head hurt worse and her brain doesn’t function like it used to. Heat and physical activities make her feel worse as well. She had to stop taking the advanced classes that she would have taken.�
Her treatment and recovery plan are the focus of our daily lives. Hundreds of doctors appointments, blood test, scans, IV infusions, pills, supplements, and the extra burden of eating an organic diet that is free of gluten, dairy & refined sugar are just some of the things we continue to do to try to restore her health. We are grateful that her last ANA tests were negative. There are no days off when trying to heal from a vaccine injury. I will never stop defending her health.�
I have learned a lot these past few years. Nothing is one size fits all. My daughter is compound heterozygous for 2 SNP’s of the MTHFR gene. Because of this, she has methylation & detox deficiencies which put her at a high risk for vaccine reactions. Unfortunately, I didn’t learn about this until it was too late. Watching your child’s health and life be taken from them is soul crushing. This has affected our entire family and I am still grieving for the life that she once had.
If we are not given the right to choose what medical procedures are best for our families, then we are not living in a free land. Everything that Lauren has developed is a listed side-effect (on the package insert from the manufacturer) of the Gardasil vaccine. I had concerns that I addressed with my pediatrician that day, and I was told nothing like that ever happens. Parents deserve informed consent. Where there is a risk, there must be a choice. Thank you for taking to time to read Lauren’s story.
At the time we were interviewed for the VAXXED documentary I thought she was goin to recover with help from the IV infusions. However, when she went back to school and tried to play sports, her symptoms came back and then we learned about the autoimmunity. This is pretty common because autoimmune issues take several months or even years to develop after damage has occurred.
Today, Lauren continues to suffers from chronic fatigue, chronic head pain & short-term memory problems. She has also been diagnosed with autoimmunity to her thyroid, metabolic dysfunction & immune dysfunction since having the adverse reaction. She is able to attend school, but it’s much harder than is was before her injury. She is not able to do any of the extra activities that she once loved. �
We have been working non-stop since the beginning of 2017 to restore her health. I am so proud of her for not giving up. We are not defined by what happens to us, but by how we choose to respond. Lauren is tough as nails and a warrior, this has changed her and our lives so much. I am grateful for all that she can still do, and pray that she can continue to heal.”
