Brandon's story

Hi Sandy.  Here is our personal story.   My beautiful son Brandon was injured by a DPT vaccine on July 10, 1992.  He was 5 1/2 months old and perfectly healthy.  Five hours after the vaccine Brandon was rushed to the hospital having a grand mal seizure (20-30 minutes long).  He was kept overnight for observation.  The next day he had another grand mal seizure (also 20-30 minutes long) so he was kept for a week so testing could be done.  During these seizures, there was no fever.  These were not febrile seizures.  I kept saying he had a vaccine today and I was told yeh the vaccine probably caused a fever which brought on the seizures, no need to worry even though no fever was recorded.  Any way to make a very long story short, Brandon who is now 10 years old, has suffered thousands of seizures through the years which we have not been able to completely control.  He is developmentally about 13 months old and he also has autistic behaviors.  We did receive compensation from the compensation fund.  That's another long story, but that money will never put my son's health back to what it was before the vaccine. 

Sincerely,
Carolyn
mom to Brandon 10 years old
