McDowell Triplets Fundraiser

The McDowell Family need our help!!!

Brenda and David McDowell watched their 3 happy, healthy, thriving children slip into the world of chronic illness after simply getting only one shot each at their 9 month doctors visit.  They were told that they could not sue the manufacturer of the shot because the NCVIA that passed in 1986 gave all manufacturers of these products liability from injury from them.  At the time, they had no idea that a special court existed to help families of these injuries, and they did not find out about it until the 3 year statute of limitations had passed for their injuries.  They felt they had nowhere to turn.  They have struggled for years taking care of these children growing up, occasionally getting help from family and friends, but feel now as though they can no longer carry this burden alone.  Our government has left them holding the bag.

Please watch their heart wrenching story above or at the provided link below. 


I first saw the story of the McDowell Triplets a couple years ago.  It brought me to tears.  Having gone through one of my own children having a similar injury, I could never have imagined going through this with three perfectly healthy children on the same day.  I was devastated.  I was so disturbed by what had happened to them, I considered reaching out to this remarkable family to see if I could somehow help them.  

Coincidentally, only a few days later, the mother of these kids reached out to me through social media after seeing a video I had created of my own son’s recovery journey from a similar injury.  She wanted to know if I had links to the treatments I used to get my child back.  When I realized who she was, I immediately gave her my phone number, and we talked for several hours about each of her kids and what we could do for them.  Since then, we have become very good friends, and the McDowells have become almost like a second family to me.

Fast forward almost 2 years later...

These same kids that have been struggling to make progress their entire lives have now been making great gains with the same heavy metal detox protocols that I used years ago with my son, as well as other biomedical treatments and changes in their learning environment!  But all this comes at a great cost.  After years of expensive interventions with minimal gains, exhausting their own resources as well as those of their extended families, downsizing and getting by while doing everything they could for their kids; they need help to continue this progress now that they are finally thriving with the combinations of interventions they are using, and making incredible gains!!

I am creating this campaign, in an attempt to help them once again.  My goal is to help them dig themselves out of this bottomless hole of medical treatment debt from years of trial and error so they may continue to help their children recover from this tragic event with what they know is working for them and without worrying about piling up any more debt than they need to. 

I cannot think of a more deserving family.  They have always kept their spirits up, had great faith despite this horrific tragedy, and know that better things are to come.  They have always found a way to make this work.  I have learned a lot from them.

If you are able to contribute to this campaign I would sincerely appreciate it.  If you cannot contribute financially, please share this campaign far and wide so it will start trending.  They could use your continued support and prayers as this has not been an easy journey for them.  Please help us help the McDowell family, and raise awareness for these types of injuries.

All money raised will go directly into an account for the McDowell family.  It will be used for medical and other expenses past and present to care for these kids.  If this campaign trends and a larger amount is collected, it will all go towards their futures.

Thank you!!!
