Maddie volunteered for the Pfizer Clinical Trials for 12–15 year-olds conducted through the Gamble Program at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

She was a healthy, energetic girl, a good student, kind and social – but Maddie hasn't been the same since she got the second Pfizer Vaccine.

Within 24 hours she developed abdominal, muscle and nerve pain that became unbearable and, over the next two-and-a-half months, she was admitted to the hospital three times, with each stay a little longer than the last.

She developed additional symptoms including gastroparesis, nausea and vomiting, erratic blood pressure and heart rate, memory loss (she mixes up words), brain fog, headaches, dizziness, fainting (she fell and hit her head), and seizures.

She developed verbal and motor tics, loss of feeling from the waist down, muscle weakness, drastic changes in her vision, urinary retention and loss of bladder control, severely irregular heavy menstrual cycles, and eventually she had to have an NG (feeding) tube put in to get nutrition. All of these symptoms are still here today, and some days are worse than others.

Steph de Garay, Maddie’s mother, said “There was nothing wrong with her. She was perfectly happy and now, whatever happened, it has changed her”.

A year post-vaccine they are still living a nightmare with no support from the mainstream medical community.

"Why is she not back to normal? She was totally fine before this. She did right in trying to help everyone else and they’re not helping here," said Stephanie de Garay, Maddie's mother. 

Maddie's mother said her daughter has been to the emergency room nine times – and she has been hospitalized three times.

"All we want is for Maddie to be seen, heard, and believed because she has not been. And we want her to get the care that she desperately needs, so she can go back to normal," said Stephanie de Garay, in tears.
