A healthy, 9-year old Florida girl was paralyzed by the flu shot
The acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) is a disorder of the neuro-immune system that is so rare that there is very few information on its causes. Usually, this disorder appears as a result of inflammation in the myelin sheath, which is the electromagnetic coating that protects the nerves in the brain and the spinal cord.
More than 50 percent of the people who have been diagnosed with this terrible disorder are struck while fighting an existing bacterial or viral infection. As the Cleveland Clinic Neurological Institute explains, ADEM sometimes occurs after a vaccination, usually after the MMR.
However, according to the National Vaccine Injury Lawyer, Leah Durant, even though rarely, ADEM can sometimes be triggered by a flu shot.
This is exactly the misfortunate and rare case of little Marysue Grivna, a vivacious and active nine-year-old child from Tampa, Florida. On November 20th, 2013,
Marysue got a seasonal flu vaccine, and several days later, grew limp, then paralyzed, and, as reported by the Natural News, she also grew non-verbal, confined to a wheelchair/hospital bed, and ended up eating via a g-tube.
As said on the Myelitis.org, ADEM is a rare auto-immune disease that happens when the immune system attacks its own brain tissue by mistake. This is mainly when it responds to an infection or vaccination.
Nancy Grace is a television host who reported on this case. She was shocked when she found out on air that the pharmaceutical companies do not take responsibility for any damages.
The Big Pharma’s vaccines are being protected for a quite long time. According to the Historyofvaccines.org, back in the 1970’s and 1980’s there were numerous huge payouts to families damaged by vaccines, especially from the combined DPT vaccine (diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus). Due to the success of the lawsuits, numerous pharmaceutical manufacturers stopped producing vaccines. When the Congress stepped in in 1986, any responsibility from the Big Pharma was discharged, and the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) was created.
Even nowadays, families including the one of Marysue Grivna must apply for compensation through the NVICP by first filing a ‘claim with the U.S. Court of Claims’. Ever since the beginning of this program, more than 17,000 petitions have been filed, 14,000 adjudicated, about 10,000 cases have been dismissed and only 4687 cases have been compensated for their vaccine injury.
From 1988 now on, 3.3 billion of dollars has been paid to victims of vaccine injury. This is only an insignificant amount compared to the billions upon billions made by the pharmaceutical companies on the global use of vaccines.
Obviously, none of that payout has been applied to Marysue and her family, who endured this tragedy for about three years. Their little girl who was once beautiful and spoke two languages, laughed, played, and was vivacious, now lives in diapers, is being fed via a feeding tube, and is totally dependent.
The Grivna family is still raising funds to provide their little girl with an accessible bathroom, bedroom, and a new electric wheelchair and a wheelchair van. In February 2016, in an interview for the Tampa Bay’s ABC news, Marysue’s parents refused to put her in a long-term rehabilitation facility, but to use a local one for several hours every day. Marysue’s mother, Carla, is working outside their home, and her father, Steven, is working as a primary care giver.
He has devoted all of his time and all of his life to his daughter who now weighs seventy pounds, and even though he needs surgery for neck issues, he has put all of that aside in order to take care of his daughter.
This is another proof that we must consider healthy alternatives in order to build out immune system and ever so carefully make informed choices when it comes to vaccination.
