Fighting the unknown…covid vax injury

Donation protected
This is Pete’s story.  On February 26, 2021, we never realized that this was the end of life as we knew it.  Pete received his first Pfizer vaccination on this date with a follow up on March 19, 2021.  Now, I am not going to lie and tell you, Pete was a “healthy” man, he had battled cancer previously and he was overweight, but other than that he was a healthy individual. He was an independent mobile, active father. Pete would wake up early every morning, jump out of bed, make the kids breakfast, go to work, put in a full day, come home, make dinner, and drive the kids to their various sporting events. This all began to change after his vaccination. In April, Pete’s foot began to swell. He went to numerous doctors and was told its probably gout. Come to find out it was not gout. Then doctors thought he needed major back surgery to have steel rods placed in his back, another wrong diagnosis. Months of physical therapy with no progress followed and Pete’s symptoms began to progress. Slowly, Pete began to start losing feeling in his feet, which progressed up his legs and to his waist. He was no longer able to walk or stand without assistance. Pete ended up having numerous pulmonary embolisms and dvts which needed emergency surgery to save his life. Now, it is beginning to affect his arms, hands, and other parts of his body. 
As soon as the symptoms started to appear, Pete went to the doctor, NOT one doctor but multiple doctors and specialists! He traveled into the city, he traveled down to Florida and spent a month at the mayo clinic looking for answers and spent countless hours in doctors’ offices searching for that one doctor that may be able to help. We are all praying someone would be able to help Pete.
Pete received various diagnosis; transverse myelitis, inflammation in the spine, CIDP and many doctors had no explanation. They could tell us he had inflammation stemming from his spinal nerves but could not figure out what was causing it. They tried various treatments, nothing was working, and still nothing is working! He is no closer to finding answers. 
Pete, always an optimistic, full of life, cheer you on type of guy is becoming depressed and hopeless. Imagine not being able to do the things you used to do. Imagine worrying that you could fall at any point or have an accident while talking to a business associate or in the middle of a hockey game that your child is playing. Imagine feeling like you are just waiting for this “disease” to just take over your body and kill you. He is becoming despondent, hopeless, and desperate. Almost two years later (3/8/23) he found out that his symptoms are indeed in response to the covid vaccine that he received.  While we are all happy to know where this illness originated, (Deep down we knew, but got validation from the latest doctor appointment)we are devastated to know this could have been prevented. 
I am sharing Pete’s story because it needs to be heard and we are hoping that if more people share their reactions to these shots that maybe it will help doctors find a cure or at the very least help stop the progression of this “disease”.  We are devastated that this is our new journey and one we did not choose but one we will continue as we have no other choice.

We will fight and continue to seek answers but we also need to tell the truth and let people know what this vaccine did to change Pete, his wife Kari and his boys lives forever.  
Please help support Pete so he can continue to fight this battle to find answers we all need!
