Back Story as Way of Introduction

While on one of many journeys in our efforts to help our son heal from autism, we found ourselves in the Washington. D.C. area to visit Dr. Stanley Greenspan, a child psychiatrist who.specialized in autism. While walking to his office, we came upon the cast and crew of the TV show, The West Wing. Actor Bradley Whitford was filming a cab scene. Sam ran over to the actor and said, “I know you. You’re on The West Wing,” and then he promptly averted his eyes. Mr. Whitford graciously got down on his haunches and aligned his eye contact with our son’s averted gaze, making visual contact with him. I noticed his focused connection, thinking that he must know a child with autism. Sam and the actor had a brief interchange, we took a picture, and off we went to the doctor.

After that, every time we watched the show, Sam would chant: “Bradley Whitford, he’s our man. If he can’t do it no one can. Bradley Whitford, Sis boom bah, Bradley Whitford, rah rah rah!” It became a new Sam ritual to do the chant whenever the show came on—one of Sam’s many rituals, as rituals and sameness are big things with kids with autism.

Fast forward thirteen months, we were back in D.C. for a follow-up appointment. The West Wing crew, which apparently only went to D.C. twice a year for location shots, was there again. I said to Sam, “Okay, kiddo, what’ll it be: The Capitol Building or Bradley Whitford?” Hands down, it was the familiar.

We stood out in below-freeing weather, waiting. I told the guard who Sam was waiting for and when Bradley emerged, the guard said, “Mr. Whitford, I have a little boy waiting here for you.” The crowd parted like the Red Sea and we ended up meeting the actor again. He remembered Sam from the time before and asked us, “Do you live around here?” I said, “No, we live in Oakland, California,” explaining that we were here again for a doctor’s appointment with an autism specialist. He said, “Wow! What are the odds?” Then, he told me that he and his wife were attending an autism fundraiser in our area the next month and invited Sam’s dad and I to be their guests. He gave me the number of his assistant to make the arrangements.

Up to that point, my husband and I had only gone on two or threes date since Sam’s diagnosis. With every cent we had going into therapies, dating was not in the budget. But we jumped on this and a friend came over to watch Sam. For once, we wouldn’t be splitting the usual PB&J alone on the front porch and calling it a night out.

At the event, I shared with Brad my experience of Sam going from a normally progressing boy to his regression into autism after a routine childhood vaccine, something I had learned not to talk much about publicly due to the McCarthy-like vilification towards people who are perceived as “anti-vaccine.” Brad responded by saying that his children’s pediatrician had told him, “Not vaccinating is a form of child abuse.” There you go. In that moment, the story in this bool (a fictionalized version of what we, as many families, have experienced) flashed through my brain. I went home and wrote it as a screenplay in nine days. I pitched it to HBO, but they said, “Oh, we’ve already done autism with Temple.” Really? But, I didn’t pursue it further. That was 2002, fourteen years ago. I was too involved in saving my son to pursue it further, at that point.

“SIDS” is vaccine injury.

Know this. There is no such thing as “SIDS”. It’s like calling vaccine injury “Autism”. “SIDS” is vaccine injury. Healthy babies don’t just die. There may be a tiny percentage of those with underlying conditions who just die, but certainly NOT the enormous number of babies dying suddenly after being vaccinated recently and the doctors merely calling it “SIDS”.

It’s like this epidemic of elderly patients or even adults and children who go in the hospital with pneumonia and develop complications and die. They didn’t die from pneumonia or those complications, most of them were recently vaccinated and died from complications from VACCINE INJURY.

Sidney Crosby the latest NHL player diagnosed with the mumps – fully vaccinated

Sidney Crosby is the biggest name yet to be added to the NHL’s growing list of players who have contracted the mumps.

The Pittsburgh Penguins announced Sunday that Crosby, their second-leading scorer, was the 13th NHL player to be diagnosed with the virus. The two-time MVP was held out of weekend games against the Calgary Flames and the Columbus Blue Jackets as a precaution. The 27-year-old had developed significant swelling to the right side of his face.

The team originally believed that the swelling was related to a salivary gland injury that Crosby sustained in a Nov. 29 matchup against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Did FDR Have Guillain-Barré and NOT Polio?

Did FDR Have Guillain-Barré?

Misdiagnosed? A new study suggests FDR had Guillain-Barré syndrome, not polio.

A new analysis of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s symptoms suggests he might not have been stricken by polio but by Guillain-Barré syndrome.

In 1921, at the beginning of his political career, Roosevelt became feverish and developed paralysis, which started in his legs and moved up to his neck. Although he recovered partially, he remained permanently wheelchair-bound.

Immunological pediatrician Armond Goldman of the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston now says FDR’s symptoms are more concordant with Guillain-Barré syndrome, a bacterially induced autoimmune disease. For example, polio paralyzes limbs unevenly and doesn’t move up the body as happened with Roosevelt. The intense pain he felt when people touched his paralyzed legs isn’t commonly seen in poliomyelitis. What’s more, it would be highly unusual for polio to strike someone well into adulthood.

The Goldman team compiled all the details they could find of FDR’s case and scoured the literature to determine how common the symptoms were 80 years ago. They then calculated the likelihood that a 39-year-old man with each of Roosevelt’s eight symptoms would suffer from polio or Guillain-Barré. The latter emerged as the more likely cause of his paralysis, they report in the 1 November Journal of Medical Biography.

“The result is interesting both historically and neurologically,” says neurologist Deborah Green of the University of Hawaii School of Medicine in Manoa. FDR’s misdiagnosis–if such it was–may have changed the course of history, because his affliction gave great momentum to efforts to develop a polio vaccine. But Green notes that the only way to diagnose Guillain-Barre is by testing spinal cord fluid. Neurologist H. Royden Jones of Harvard Medical School in Boston adds that the researchers could be wrong in assuming that “Guillain-Barré is the same now as it was back then.”

Infant assaulted with 8 vaccine doses at six months old… collapses into state of brain damage… doctors blame the parents!

Desperate to share her story, a Texas mother is speaking out about the traumatic injuries her young daughter sustained after being injected at six months old with a total of eight vaccine doses.

About a month after infant Cerenity received the DTaP/Hib/IPV (5-in-1 combo), hepatitis B, pneumococcal Prevnar 13, and the oral Rotavirus vaccine, she suffered several major injuries and grew increasingly unwell.

Prior to the six month vaccination mark, Cerenity was a healthy baby with normal physical and cognitive development. But after receiving the eight vaccine doses, she became fussy and lethargic, according to her mother July Garza. A month later, the child’s health took a sharp turn for the worse.

UD Mumps Outbreak NOT Tied To Low Vaccination Rates

UD Mumps Outbreak Not Tied To Low Vaccination Rates.                                           In other words, they ARE tied to HIGH Vaccination rates.


9 students at the University of Dayton have confirmed cases of the mumps and another 23 have shown symptoms. All but one of those students was fully vaccinated against the infection.
All UD students are required to receive the MMR vaccine, which protects against Mumps, Measles and Rubella, before starting classes — unless a medical condition prevents them from getting it.

Donna Youtz, the immunization coordinator with Public Health Dayton and Montgomery County, says the vaccine isn’t 100% percent effective.

“It’s about 88 percent effective if they get two doses,” said Youtz. “And other than that we really don’t know why it’s not working as well as we had hoped.”

Yutz says high immunization rates help to contain the spread of the disease.

Mumps is viral infection that causes swelling of the glands, fever, and muscle aches. Outbreaks are more likely to occur is places where people are in close contact. Similar outbreaks have occurred recently at Ohio State, Fordham, and Harvard.


This is fantabulous and a must watch.

Except there is no such thing as a green vaccine or taking less at a time or waiting till they are older is better.

No, we have lost our trust in God and Nature. Man cannot ever possibly create anything better than God. Our job is to study nature as it is, not pick out parts here and there so we can patent it and make money from it.

Former NBC-Universal CEO: Vaccines Damaged My Autistic Grandson

The roof is beginning to cave in on the vaccine empire.

Now, in the wake of the unsuccessful attempt to censor the film Vaxxed (trailer), we have Bob Wright, the former CEO of media giant, NBC Universal, authoring a new book, “The Wright Stuff: From NBC to Autism Speaks.”

Named president and CEO of NBC at the age of 43, he faced a two-headed dragon: on one hand, distrust from the network people deeply skeptical of the “suit” from GE, their new corporate parent; and on the other, fiscal oversight demands from a cautious, conservative institution reluctant to invest heavily in a media business they didn’t understand. For the next 20 years, he managed to navigate the fine line between the two and in the process completely reinvent―and save―the network.
