Welcome To Off The Radar

GARDASIL killed my daughter

I don’t know about you ....... but I am sick and tired of hearing and reading usual propaganda from the Ministry of Health.  Just because the reactions or side-affects don’t match those expected that fall into the so-called category for that particular pharmaceutical product. 

 Reporting adverse reactions

The Centre for Adverse Reaction Monitoring (CARM) welcomes all adverse reaction reports but particularly requests serious or unexpected reactions.  As one of the main objectives is to identify hitherto unrecognised reactions, presenters should not be deterred by uncertainty regarding cause and effect. For products on the Intensive Medicines Monitoring Programme all adverse clinical events should be reported, whether or not they are thought to be related to the use of the medicine.

   HA !!  Serious..... Unexpected..... Unrecognised..... deterred..... uncertainty.....?

I wonder if Gardasil for Cervical Cancer is even on their intensive Medicines Monitoring Programme giving the fact it was fast-tracked by the FDA before full testing was complete.

My Daughter fitted into that category.  Her reaction was SERIOUSLY UNEXPECTED. Death usually is when you are a very healthy person....... don’t smoke, don’t do drugs and don’t indulge in alcohol.  Go to bed happy and die in your sleep.    OH and we didn't see that coming, So wouldn't that come under UNEXPECTED ?!

My Daughter Jasmine,  Right up until she began the Gardasil for Cervical Cancer Vaccine had a very, normal, cheerful and happy 18 years.... never had any underlining or serious health issues.  And was up to date with all other immunisations.

But after her very first shot of Gardasil in September 2008, she had warts developing on her hands at an incredible rate and had her doctor freeze them off in October 2008.

November 2008 had second shot of Gardasil. The warts on her hands returned and she had her doctor once again ...freeze them off at end of January 2009.

March 2009 Had third shot of Gardasil.

 Right from the first shot as I recall my daughter’s last year she had complained of all  kinds of ailments but were not serious enough to rush to the doctor’s for ... as they would disappear as fast as they came on.

 note:      warts on her hands......headaches often.....dizziness.....weak arms and legs....pins and needles in hands.....moody/snappy.....sweating profusely/her pillow was wet in winter.....lost assertiveness in her own decisions.....memory lapses.....hating on herself because of memory lapses, warts, pimples and just the way she perceived herself......back pain.....sleeping more in the daytime.....feeling sick ......stomach feeling so tight it was painful.....abdominal pains......chest pains......heart racing for no reason.


The following is Hilary's letter holding Medsafe and CARM accountable for their dismissive explanations in NZ Herald article regarding Jasmine Renata's death due to Gardasil

Open Letter to Dr Stewart Jessamine, Medsafe.
 Saturday, 9 January, 2009.


Dear Dr Jessamine,

I have been working with Rhonda Renata since October, regarding her daughter’s death following the Gardasil vaccination, and have permission to discuss her death, and for all information I have to be made public. This letter has been written with Rhonda, and all attachments are attached as requested by Rhonda.I also have Rhonda’s permission to discuss other aspects of this case on my website, now that Rhonda has gone public through the Herald today:


Reference: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10619244 9 January 2010.

CSL, which markets Gardasil in New Zealand, said it was unlikely the investigations would find the vaccine caused Jasmine's death.The Ministry of Health said it was important not to jump to conclusions about Jasmine's death until more information was available.

"Information from immunisation programmes overseas has not raised any concerns over the safety of this vaccine, in which over 44 million doses have been distributed worldwide," said Dr Stewart Jessamine, group manager of the ministry's medicines safety authority Medsafe.

CARM director Michael Tatley yesterday told the Herald an investigation was under way, but details of the girl's death were "really scant stuff"  The matter was still before the coroner.  The girl is believed to have died in the past couple of months. Her death had come within six months of receiving the Gardasil vaccination, but it was not known if she had completed the course - generally three shots administered six weeks apart.


Before I discuss specific issues which concern me, please find attached Jasmine’s medical recordsJas medical records.pdf; two documents which were sent to Dr Michael Tatley’s office by Rhonda Renata on the 21th November, 2009, (Report card Jasmine Renata HPV Reporting card.pdf , and supplementary documents Jasmine Renata.pdf ) acknowledged by Janelle Ashton on 23.11.2009, and assigned the CARM report number, 087237. Please also find attached the provisional report after autopsy Provisional postmortem.pdf ; ESR letter 17th Novmber 2009 ESR 17 Nov 2009.pdf , and please note that this was all that has been received by the parents.

· Can you read the provisional report?

· Do you think that this “information” is appropriate for parents?

· Shouldn’t parents in Rhonda’s position, receive an outline of what will be done; how, and in what time frame?

Jasmine died on 22nd September 2009.

· Do you think it reasonable that Jasmine’s parents still have no autopsy results?

Dr Diane M. Harper, a lead researcher in the development of the humanpapilloma virus vaccine, says giving the vaccine to 11 year old girls "is a great big public health experiment"  The lead researcher who spent 20 years developing the vaccine forDr Diane Harper humanpapilloma virus says the HPV vaccine is not for younger girls as it has not been tested for effectiveness in younger girls, and administering the vaccine to girls as young as 9 may not even protect them all.  And, in the worst-case scenario, instead of serving to reduce the numbers of cervical cancers within 25 years, such a vaccination crusade actually could cause the numbers to go up.

"There is not enough evidence gathered on side effects to know that safety is not an issue".

"Giving it to 11 year olds is a great big public health experiment", said Diane M. Harper, who is a scientist, physician, professor and the director the Gynecologic Cancer Prevention Research Group at the Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Dartmouth Medical School in New Hampshire.

Uncensored MagazineUncensored Magazine of New Zealand invited me to write the following article regarding information I have uncovered on the HPV vaccine "Gardasil".  It features in their issue (June 09) and is also on their website http://www.uncensored.co.nz/



Being the mother of a ten your old daughter I was curious when I initially heard Helen Clarke announce the government was implementing a $180 million HPV vaccination programme for our daughters. Having investigated the meningococcal vaccine and seeing how our Ministry of Health was less than truthful with that programme, I was naturally suspicious to say the least.

I started with Helen Clarke's speech notes in which she states "about eight in every ten women who have been sexually active will have HPV at some stage of their life.  Normally there are no symptoms, and in 98 per cent of cases it clears itself.  But in those cases where it doesn't and isn't treated, it can lead to precancerous cells which may develop into cervical cancer."

I then delved into the facts of how HPV viruses cause cervical cancer.  Not much in the way of concrete facts there, however I did find information that suggests HPV is an unlikely cause of cancer as no set of viral genes is consistently present or expressed in human cervical cancers.  HPV does not replicate in the cancer cells.  All that has ever been shown is that HPV is sometimes present in cervical cancer tissue.  Also there appears to be a lack of evidence that cervical cancer presents in women with HPV more often than in women without it.

Armed with this information I decided to enlighten other parents by writing a letter to the editor of our local paper "The Timaru Herald" concluding "this costly programme is needlessly vaccinating our girls for a minuscule at-risk group, with a vaccine that only covers four out of the possible 100 HPV viruses, and offers only five years immunity.  But most importantly, it hasn't even been proven to prevent cervical cancer".

Dr Alison Roberts, Senior Adviser public health medicine MOH wrote an attacking reply saying there were a number of factual errors in my letter.  As did Helen Petousis-Harris Immunisation Advisory Centre University of Auckland.  Their replies made me even more curious that they should, for one be reading "The Timaru Herald" and two, see my letter needing such swift replies of condemnation.  Perhaps there was something they didn't want made public about this vaccine, so thanks to these two women, rather than just leave my investigating at this level I decided to dig deeper.

Julie SmithBeing a mum and having a ten year old daughter I am interested in anything that will be of benefit to her now and in the future, so naturally I was curious about this HPV vaccine programme and the possible benefits for her.
Instead of just listening to all the “hype” over this vaccine I endeavoured to uncover actual facts.  I started with Helen Clark’s speech notes on her announcement of the “$177 million programme” two months ago in May (www.beehive.govt.nz/speech)   In her speech she states “About eight in every ten women who have been sexually active will have HPV at some stage of their life.  Normally there are no symptoms, and in 98 per cent of cases it clears itself.  But in those cases where it doesn’t and isn’t treated, it can lead to pre-cancerous cells which may develop into cervical cancer.”
