An 11 week old baby from Oregon in May of 2003 also lost its life to pertussis aka whooping cough http://www.oregon.gov/DHS/news/2003news ... 515a.shtml its so sad that pertussis keeps taking lives yet most people dont even know it still exists.

Thank you all for reading this post and I wholeheartedly agree that Drs like the ones who were supposed to take care of Sebanna were a joke I only wish I would have realized it sooner [:(][V][:(][V]

Very true Cassie. I wholeheartedly agree. Doctors today should never be so uneducated or negligent.

Amen sister! What happened to Sebanna should have never happened this day and age! That child had to be really sick to have passed away like that. There is no reason that she wasn't tested..no reason. It's sad that it takes something like her passing to make dr's be more aware of it. I mean, it's just like how certain places need a red light or a turn light put up but yet they wait til there are a certain number of wrecks or deaths before they do anything about it. That shouldn't happen! I'm furious~and scared for my kids too. It almost makes me feel that during sick months I should hoard them up in the house.

Sorry Lucy that you had to go through all this, but know that you ARE making a difference to people!

I understand that everyone has different outlooks on the vaccines. Each parent can choose which vaccines they want their child to have. I was just agreeing that it is criminal for a doctor not to be able to diagnose whooping cough. IMO in regards to Sebanna, it was criminal for the doctors to ignore Lucys concerns and it was the doctors who are at fault for not treating her sooner.

Yet more information http://sinclair-lee.blogspot.com/2004_0 ... chive.html scroll down to the bottom thats where her story starts with a picture, I also found more articles of babies who lost their lives to pertussis aka whooping cough it hurts so bad please please educate yourself and all those you know it honestly could save a life, I thought it didnt exist and it had been wiped out since you never hear about it anymore that isnt the case and you have proof of that please spread awareness.
