My name is Heather Meyers and as a resident of NYS. I am writing to you for help with a very serious health matter. You may not be aware, but the HPV vaccine, Gardasil, was fast tracked through the approval process several years...s ago and I feel very strongly that it should be removed from the market for further testing. You see, my daughter has been ill ever since receiving this vaccine, two years ago at the age of seventeen. In fact, there have now been over 29,000 reports of injury and 130 deaths in connection with an HPV vaccine. She is experiencing such symptoms as: inflammation thyroid and adrenal problems, has at times lost use of her legs, muscle spasm, body pain, twitching and dizziness, severe fatigue, breathing ailments, severe headaches, vomiting, loss of motor function at times. - Symptoms that may be seen on any package insert from a vial of this vaccine. There has been no cure or even a true treatment plan for her, even though she has been to every Specialist you could imagine, No one except a Holistic Doctor has been able to help with these symptoms, she was an active girl prior to Gardasil. She was in High school, she worked, and she went to the gym. Since Gardasil, her life has changed drastically, she can no longer work, she spent a year in bed, and lost 35 lbs was in the Hospital for 17 days at the end of her Senior Yr in High School. Her body had been so badly affected; I was told she had Non- Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, stage 4 that spread to her lungs. After many tests and much anguish it was determined she was toxic with Heavy Metals due to Gardasil. She had to with drawl from school, under doctor's orders, her senior year because she was far too weak and ill to attend school. She vomited 3-4 times a day for months and at times continues with this problem. My daughter is now 19, has tried with all her will to attend college to no avail, she was recently pulled out due to health issues. Her diet now consists of very few foods; she tired very easily and once again is going through enormous amounts of testing. She takes up to 20 Vitamins and Supplements daily, goes to a chiropractor weekly and her quality of life is severely diminished.
I am asking you to please not allow the following Bills to pass (A497 & A2067) I truly beg you to Research this issue further before this happens to other children. If their parents do not know what caused there illness they could die if not treated properly. Please don’t allow parents to lose their rights, eleven year old should not be making this decisions when the outcome could be death.
Governor, I recently saw you take a stand for the Autism community in allowing these children the Medical care they need, that was not once covered by Insurance. Please understand that “Post Gardasil Syndrome” is every bit as horrific for us families. We truly need help, our children need Care in Order to stay alive and most all of it is not covered by Insurance. Not only are we fighting for our children’s lives, we face fear on a daily basis that will run out of money to care for them; we fear we will lose our child. I can not put into words how stressful it is and how terrified we are. I am begging for help to change this and ask a Law be put in place to help us afford what our children so desperately need, which is very similar to the care Autistic children need.
So, I beg you, Governor to take some time from your busy schedule to look into this very serious matter. You may contact me for further information, or visit WWW.TruthAboutGardasil.ORG . You could even just "goggle" gardasil side effects. I anxiously await your response.
Sincerely, Heather Meyers, Mother of Sarah - a Gardasil Injured Girl Awaiting a Cure
