How Therapy Helped: Did not help
Strengths: ADD, ADHD, Bi-polar Depression. When my son was diagnosed/labeled with these I researched and studied endlessly. We have a success story with a fully mainstreamed 11 y.o. when we were told he would probably continue to decline w/out psychotropic drugs. Not an easy journey or a complete one but we have a happy healthy family and perhaps some of what we learned may porove useful to others.
Why I became a
Rescue Angel:
I am deeply concerned about the correlation between vaccines and ND and the refusal of Doctors to entertain the possibility. The pushback we received from the school, our pediatricians and hospital was concerning and intimidating.

I have researched a lot of vaccine induced illnesses and they don't stop with autism, there are endless diseases triggered by vaccines.

There is nothing more important in the world right now, to me, then helping others just beginning down the long, lonely and painful road just after receiving the diagnosis of autism. There are also so many others that are just starting to open their minds to the hope of recovery. My Jack is now 5 years old and is not the same child he was prior to the interventions. It is now my turn to give back and I do so with an honest and sincere heart. The interventions work!

How Therapy Helped: Significantly
Strengths: My best friend (Megan Concannon) and I (she is also a resuce angel) have worked together to raise local awareness about biomedical intervention. We work with Dr. Marvin Boris and Dr. Michael Elice with our children here in NY. We have learned how to look at our children and begin to peel back the layers of sickness like an onion. As we treat each layer, our children begin to improve. We are now ourselves beginning to get treatment as we both realize we are sick. This is a multi system breakdown in our children and as moms, we have to be strong and healthy to help them. We have local support groups to spread the biomedical word. The problem is, this is hard work and we are being met with resistance from parents that just don't seem to want to do the work that needs to be done to recover these children. We will never EVER shut our mouths about how Autism stole our children and how we WILL get them back. I knew God gave me a big mouth for a reason, I was just never able to use it for good before.
Why I became a
Rescue Angel:
Because when my child was diagnosed a doctor handed me a box of tissues and said "I'm sorry. Your son has Autism. There is no cure"... and I said "But I thought all along something was wrong. Why didn't you listen to me. I think he's allergic to milk. Could that play a part." "No" they said. "There is no evidence that anything you have done diet or vaccination wise played a part." Well guess what moms and dads, I wish I had a rescue angel 4 years ago to tell me that this is not true and that I CAN AND WILL get my child back and so can you!
