ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —

Three months ago Action 7 News introduced you to 16-year-old Alexis Wolf, a teen with severe brain damage, reportedly caused by violent seizures.
Alexis’ mom blames a series of Gardasil shots for the change in her daughter.After Action 7 News’ story aired, a local doctor volunteered to treat Alexis for free and he promised results.
Alexis has had a few months of treatments.It has been three long years for Tracy Wolf and her daughter Alexis.”It’s a nightmare. This whole thing is a nightmare,” Wolf said.
In 2007 and 2008 Alexis received a series of Gardasil shots.The vaccine is FDA-approved and has been available in the U.S. since 2006.It’s given to women ages 9 to 26 to vaccinate them against HPV, a virus that can cause cervical cancer.
Shortly after Alexis got her shots, she went from a happy kid to a teen who suffered from violent seizures, vomiting, pain and insomnia.Though there is no proof that Gardasil is to blame, Wolf said she is certain they are what changed her daughter.
