Wesley's Story: Hurt and Healing After Mercury-containing Vaccines
When my son's diagnosis of autism was superseded by that of mercury-poisoning due to vaccines, I began two inextricably linked struggles. The first was healing my son from the devastating effects of off-the-chart mercury toxicity. The second was advocating to protect other children from being unnecessarily injured by vaccines that contained this unwarranted vaccine component. Wesley is now pursuing a high school diploma, and my advocacy has taken me from Washington DC to the United Nations.
