    Another article and short tv video


    Friday, February 13, 2009

    Gabi Swank's mother, Shannon, thought her daughter should get the Gardasil shot because cervical cancer runs in their family. But with each round of the drug, Gabi kept getting sicker. The once healthy, spunky cheerleader is now home bound, on a dozen different medicines and doctors say she will die from the complications.

    here is the link to the video

    My sister is currently fighting HPV type 4 and her OBGYN says that if it finally clears up this year (it's been 4 years now) that she should get the vaccine.  I am terrified for her!  I have tried to show her the documentation about side effects/complications and she continues to resist my opinion because her "doctor" tells her it's the right thing to do.  Thanks for spreading the information :)

    I'm sorry, unfortunately we live in a culture where Dr's are considered "gods"

    Good luck with your sis.

    Maybe she could get a second opinion???
