Shannon McDonald walked into her 18-month old twin toddler’s room fearing the worst, and that’s unfortunately exactly what she found. Nevaeh Kennedy was rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. The day before her death, McDonald brought both twins in for routine vaccinations. McDonald told CTV news.ca that she felt something was wrong the entire time.
“Something in my chest was telling me,” McDonald told CTV Atlantic. “That big scary feeling that every mother has — that they’re going to walk into a room and their kid who is supposed to be sleeping is going to be dead.
“I felt that before I even touched her.”
Just days following the tragedy, the family was displaced due to fire. And that’s the primary focus of the news outlets. Not to undermine the tragedy of the fire and the family’s displacement, but the focus should be on finding what caused Nevaeh’s untimely death. The proximity of vaccinations and the toddler’s death should not be swept under the rug. We can’t find any information on what type of vaccines the toddler was given (just that vaccines were involved).
McDonald said only a day before Nevaeh’s death she had brought the youngster and her twin sister Nyla to their doctor for a routine check-up and vaccinations.
McDonald has been told an autopsy could take up to six months. Her reaction to the delay was one of frustration.
“I need some type of closure,” McDonald said. “I need to know why.”
The lengthy autopsy is part of the sweep this under the rug process. This consistently happens to parents.
Notice that the media refers to vaccines as “routine shots”. This is so they don’t draw any attention to potential evidence. The news completely avoids saying vaccines in its on-air segment. How can it be acceptable that an autopsy would take six months? The news segment buries this aspect of the matter. No parent should have to wait that long. If any other event had occurred in a toddler’s life within 24 hours of a mystery passing, that event would be used as a clue to what potentially occurred.
Parents all too often are left without any recourse (remember, they can’t sue pharmaceutical companies). Also, questioning vaccines, even after a tragedy warrants such, will change the conversation to bullying and intimidation rhetoric.
