 HILLIARD, FL
It is with our deepest sympathy and regret that we have established this page for Derek and Breanna.  Derek and Breanna lost their son, 6 month old  Liam Archer Osterhout, suddenly on Thursday evening 3/26/2015.  Liam was deeply loved and brought immense joy and love into the lives of his parents and all that knew him. 
 
It was a typical evening on Thursday when Breanna nursed her son and laid him down to sleep.  After a short period of time, she went in to check on him and he was chilly and blue. She rushed him to his Papa, Del, who is a First Responder, and he did all he could to try to revive Liam until the ambulance arrived. Unfortunately, Liam could not be revived. Derek and Breanna have donated Liam's heart values so other families hopefully will not feel the pain and suffering they are feeling. In a split second, their lives have been forever altered.

We are unable to take away the unimaginable emotional burden that Liam's family is feeling but we can assist in relieving the financial burden that they will incur in both medical and funeral expenses. Any amount is appreciated to help this young family through this immensely difficult time.

Parents:  Derek & Breanna Osterhout
Paternal Grandparents:  Del & Sandra Osterhout
Maternal Grandparents:  Bonnie Davis and  Gary Davis
Paternal Great-Grandmother: Lillian Sheffield
Maternal Great-Grandmother: Carol Wallace
Brother:  Wyatt Gunner Osterhout
Aunts:  Holly Osterhout (Jason) Silcox, Lisa Osterhout (Skeeter) Scarbrough, Joy Davis (Bob) Lohr, Savannah Davis
Uncles:  Jeromy Davis, Jason Davis

Birthday: September 26, 2014
Date of Death: March 26, 2015

What a beautiful baby boy. The heartache is crushing. Too many parents are losing their perfect babies following vaccination. Some may comment that this is not the time or place for this discussion. But I disagree. We have extended our sincere, heartfelt sympathy and we are not here to criticize. We are here to offer compassion and help. These parents deserve answers and compensation for their loss. Like most parents, I'm sure these good parents were following the advice of the people they trusted to be experts in caring for their baby. I'm sure they did everything they were told was good and right to do. This is not about what the parents did. This is about what is being pushed on all of our babies... vaccines and the harm they cause. These parents deserve justice. So does little Liam. Please do not deny them justice. VAERS (Vaccine Advent Reporting System) is the federal program that REQUIRES that doctors report serious reactions, illness and death following vaccination. This report is required by federal law but many doctors fail to do so. Liam's parents should insist that a full investigation be done and a report filed. They may need to file the report themselves if the doctor does not. And that should be reported as well. Please do not deny Liam's parents the opportunity for some measure of justice and compensation. They may very well have a claim for the VICP (Vaccine Injury Compensation Program). They should contact an attorney right away. Again, my sincere heartfelt sympathy.

I am so saddened to hear of this loss! I noticed that you had taken him to the Doctors that afternoon. Did he receive vaccines? If so than it could have been an adverse reaction! Please look into the vaccine injury compensation program! First step is to file a vaccine adverse event report. Your doctor should have done it. If you need help please contact me. My youngest had a reaction to her vaccine and is now permanently brain damaged. It won't heal your heart but the settlement will pay the medical expenses.

Breanna should never feel guilty for vaccinating Liam, she was following the advice of her doctor and the government. Calling people antivax and shaming us with guilt will not help this from happening to another child. The only person feeling guilty at this time should be the doctor who injected Liam, not his mother who was trying to protect him like she was told and loved him more than life itself.

Chelsea & Ivet right on!!! This mom needs support guidance advocacy & people that have been where she is now. To have a child robbed from you because of a system WE trust to keep our children safe is the deepest injustice. Coming along side her insupport is exactly what more parents should be doing for each other. Advocacy advice and support in no way implies tactlessness .

Everyone needs to stop passing judgement! Nonvaxers are here to support her, SUPPORT SHE WANTS AND NEEDS! Breanna, like any mother who lost a child wants answers! So if people are offering to help her, do not say its not the time or place. Breanna is a strong beautiful woman but she needs as much support as she can get right now! I have spoke to her and she is aware of the vaers and such, so do not say this isnt the time or place NOW is thr time to take action for her beautiful sweet baby boy! Love you Breanna and although answers wont bring Liam back, those of us who know you & love you are here to support you!

My heart, hugs and prayers go out to you and your family...I wish no mother had to experience the pain that you are going through. I watched my mother in the 90's go through the exact same thing, after losing my 4 month old baby brother following his routine well visit...we are carriers of the MTHFR gene mutation and did not know it back then. Again, I am praying for you all

I am so unbelievably heartbroken for you. Having a baby myself, i can only imagine the pain you feel. I hope that you have strong friends and family to help comfort you in this devastating time in your life. To all of you antivax, you have no idea why this child passed away and this mom doesn't need to feel any more guilty than she already does. Your advice is anything but comforting. Your rambling is doing nothing but stabbing the knife deeper into her. Class and tact go along way in life.

This is beyond words, beyond endurance. The great love that Breanna has for her sons radiates from every picture, video, and posting. When my own son died in 1999, another mother, who had lost her daughter, said that we belong to an exclusive mothers' group that no one voluntarily joins. Tens of thousands of people are grieving along with you.
