Sonja Howard: The new State Coroner Micheal Barnes has ordered an INQUEST into the death of my precious little boy. After begging and campaigning and praying for 3 year we will finally have a fair and due process. Thank you for all of your advocacy.

Ezekiel was my first born son, the triumph of my life. When I thought he had a stroke back in May 2011, Dr. Kolos laughed and said: "It's more than likely an anomaly, just to err on the side of caution here is a referral to a cardiologist."

We went to the cardiologist on the 25th of May. He (Dr. Murphy) took phone calls about his bathroom renovation and left the room, not focused on the screen. He wrote a report that Ezekiel's heart was "functionally & structurally normal". Three months later, Ezekiel was dead. At autopsy they found:

* A hole in his heart
* Hypertrophic left ventricle
* Diseased Aorta

All of this should have been located at the echocardiogram. I asked Nepean Hospital for the recording of the echocardiogram for another opinion. I was told by Kay Hymen via letter that it had been deleted, along with 2 months of other patients' cardiac records.

The hospital has not alerted the public to this. I found my child's record was deleted after he died!

1 in 6 children require heart treatment in Australia, many people of all ages require echocardiograms. Any one of these people could die as a result of NOT HAVING THEIR RECORDS KEPT AND NOT BEING TOLD!

Be sure to share this with others especially in Western Sydney patients of Dr David Murphy and Nepean Hospital in the months March - July 2011.

Please express your concern about PUBLIC HEALTH & SAFETY to:

      The new State Coroner Micheal Barnes has ordered an INQUEST into the death of my precious little boy. After begging, campaigning and praying for 3 years we will finally have a fair and due process. The inquest will consider how the left ventricle of my sons heart went from a healthy 7mm reported by Dr. David Murphy, to a deadly14mm at autopsy 3 months later. It will also consider the genetic mutation my son carried known to be associated with Cardiac Issues and the 'accidental deletion' of his heart ultrasound record. It will also consider the strange conclusion of Dr Phillip Roberts (Murphy's colleague) that my son died of epilepsy, having never had a fit and DNA for the condition.
      Thank you for all of your advocacy.

    2. DNA REVEALS THE TRUTH

      Sonja Howard
      Petition Organizer

      Ezekiel's DNA was tested at Harvard and one mutation was located. The gene responsible for causing HYPERTROPHY. A disease that left evidence at autopsy, a disease he had the symptoms of in life. It is time for the court to call the cause of death what it truly is and for the malpractising doctor to be held to account! And for the Hospital to explain why they TRULY deleted Ezekiel's echocardiogram!

      Please insist that an inquest investigates the death of my child.
      MY SON HAS BEEN KILLED BY MURPHY ,
      *HIS CARDIAC RECORDS HAVE BEEN DELETED DELIBERATELY
      *HE HAD THE SAME HEART AT AUTOPSY WITH A HOLE, HYPERTROPHY AND A DISEASED AORTA,
      *AS HE HAD HAD 3 MONTHS EARLIER IN LIFE! NOT DIAGNOSED BY MURPHY BECAUSE HIS BATHROOM PHONE CALL WAS MORE IMPORTANT!
      AUSTRALIA UNDERSTANDS THESE FACTS. IT IS TIME TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE FACTS AND ACT ON THE TRUTH.

      Prayer and the Parable of the Persistent Widow Luke 18 (Bible)
      18:1 Then Jesus told them a parable to show them they should always pray and not lose heart. 18:2 He said, “In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor respected people. 18:3 There was also a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Give me justice against my adversary.’ 18:4 For a while he refused, but later on he said to himself, ‘Though I neither fear God nor have regard for people, 18:5 yet because this widow keeps on bothering me, I will give her justice, or in the end she will wear me out by her unending pleas.’” 18:6 And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unrighteous judge says! 18:7 Won’t 18 God give justice to his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he delay long to help them? 18:8 I tell you, he will give them justice speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”

      Not in the office at the moment but will send the actual letter to you tomorrow but I can confirm the Paediatric Cardiologists were advised in writing of the date range of deletions and requested to undertake whatever appropriate follow up required. We are not aware how many, if any, of their patients they chose to recall.
