An otherwise healthy 8-year-old boy who received a DTaP shot has died and a grief-stricken father is searching for answers. Was vaccination the reason for the child's sudden and inexplicable death?
Nick Catone is a 35-year-old MMA fighter and instructor who’s fought on some of the sport’s biggest stages, compiling an overall record of 10 wins and 4 losses including 4 wins in the UFC, the most popular professional promotion in the world.
But now he faces what may be the most difficult fight of his life: grieving over the loss of his beloved son Nicholas, and finding out the truth about what really happened to his otherwise healthy little boy, who simply didn’t wake up one day.
While an official answer has not been given, the Catones believe the DTaP (Diphtheria, Tetanus, and acellular Pertussis) vaccine led to his death.
Nick Catone lashed out at the vaccine industry in an 800-plus word post made on June 27, and his page has been inundated with words of support as well as similar stories of kids whose health took a serious turn for the worse following vaccinations.
“The more I think about the final results of my son’s autopsy report the more pissed off I get,” he said. “No parent wants to think about it and go through it but we had to for my 3-year-old daughter. Then to find out there was no answer ‘no medical reason’ after going through with that is heart wrenching.”
How does a healthy, happy, and playful 20-month-old boy suddenly not wake up one day, and how can his death be described as “natural” on the autopsy report?
The Catone family wants answers, but they’re not getting any, which is part of the reason they suspect the vaccine his son received prior to his death is the culprit.
After the death of his son, Catone started researching the link between vaccination and seizures, learning about horrifying stories of children suddenly passing away with no explanation after being vaccinated.In his blog post, Catone writes, “I wish I knew what I do today and my son would never have gotten any. All about money in this fucked up world we live in. We’re going to keep fighting and do everything we can to get answers…”
