The day the movie VAXXED was released, April 1st, became a defining moment in my life, as it did for many other parents of vaccine-injured children. The film shed light on four pivotal areas: the need for transparency around CDC fraud, an urgent call to repeal the 1986 National Vaccine Injury Act, the advocacy for individual MMR vaccines, and the essential reclassification of vaccines as pharmaceutical drugs. While many of these objectives have yet to be realized, the message of the film deeply resonated with me, pushing me to raise awareness through personalized license plates and car decals.
Motivated by my personal experiences, especially with my children Weston and Emily, I embarked on a mission to address the housing needs of aging children with Down syndrome and autism. Drawing from my background in real estate, I envisioned creating a supportive environment for these individuals. However, the journey wasn’t without its challenges. I found that many parents, understandably attached to their grown children, were hesitant to consider alternative living arrangements. Despite the initial setbacks, I remained resolute.
Over time, my focus evolved, and I began to use my resources and expertise to assist another vulnerable group: disabled veterans in Prescott, AZ. Recognizing the skyrocketing rents and the increasing challenges these veterans faced, I became committed to offering them affordable and safe housing options. Throughout this journey, my underlying philosophy has always been to prioritize others, striving to make a positive difference in the lives of those around me.
