Lauren Mathis was 12 years old, when her life was turned upside down. On April 16, 2008, she received the second in a series of three recommended Gardasil shots.
Her life changed from that of a gifted honor student to one of endless rounds of hospital and doctor visits due to her severe reaction to the Gardasil vaccine.
Her mother was shocked to learn that Lauren’s doctor did not know what the VAERS (vaccine adverse events resporting system) was, much less how to file a report. The medical report for Lauren was only filed after Rosemary discovered how to file a report and submitted one herself.
Since Lauren’s reaction, Rosemary, several other parents and concerned professionals have spent their time compiling, documenting and researching parental concerns about the Gardasil vaccine. They also launched a website dedicated to the “girls whose lives have been taken away too early because of this vaccine” and “their families who continue on……” Visit ‘The Truth About Gardasil’ here, for more information.
According to a Fox News report issued this morning, their time has been well spent. The FDA was so impressed by the research, they have invited Rosemary and five other women to present over 236 pages of data they collected to the FDA, including the Office of Vaccines Research and Review, on Friday, March 12. Data should be available to the public shortly after the meeting.
