Mother of 4, advocate for children, vaccines and organ donation.

I am a mother of 4 beautiful children. My youngest received a heart transplant at the tender age of 5 months old after a difficult battle of aortic stenosis. I am an advocate for children, vaccines and organ donation.

Your Choice Not to Vaccinate Your Kid Puts My Son's Life in Jeopardy

There are 136 cases of measles in Quebec. The disease is spreading fast considering that this outbreak was allegedly caused by a single returnee from a Disney vacation where the outbreak started. Like a run away freight train, measles will jump person to person and eventually make it here. Is my son who had a heart transplant and can't be vaccinated protected? I sure hope so. If you don't want to vaccinate, don't. But when measles is out there, an airborne illness that is so easily spread, please keep your child home. Don't make choices for my child too.
