Mom Calls Out Anti-Vaxxers In Facebook Post After Daughter Gets Seriously Ill

By Mark Pygas

Parents who refuse to have their children vaccinated can pose a serious threat to those who are unable to be vaccinated for medical reasons. Just ask Camille Echols, a pediatric nurse and mother. 

Her young daughter, Ashley, had a kidney transplant when she was just 2 years old. Because of the surgery and her medication, Ashley was unable to be fully vaccinated against chicken pox because she was immunosuppressed and her immune system would have been unable to battle the weakened form of the virus that vaccines contain.

After being exposed to a child with chickenpox over the weekend, Ashley was rushed to the emergency room. Camille took to Facebook to share photos of her daughter, and a powerful message to anti-vaxxers.
