Karen Kain will on a speaker tour in Los Angeles and will make a side tour to Santa Barbara afterward. She was a parent of a medically fragile, vaccine-injured child named Lorrin and teaches parents how to enjoy their children no matter their abilities. She shares how she bridged the gap from special needs to mainstream experiences in all arenas of life: best friends, slumber parties, concerts, camping, beauty pageants, Girl Scouts, school dances, musicals and endless travels.
Karen is committed to helping children who are living a unique life experience by supporting their parents. In 1994 Lorrin was severely vaccine injured and at that time Karen’s world fell apart. Life as she knew it was put “on hold” as she tried everything that she could to “heal” Lorrin and give her the best life possible.

Also many folks have inquired about required ' vaccinations for children if they want to attend school. Two years ago the California State Legislature passed a bill removing philosophical exemptions for vaccines (Click here for more information (http://www.naturalnews.com/043266_California_vaccine_exemptions_Constitutional_rights.html)) Your only option is to seek a medical doctor to exempt you from vaccines or file for religious exemption. Also if you or your children are injured by vaccines, the Supreme Court ruled in 2011 that vaccines makers are not liable (Click here for more information (http://www.naturalnews.com/031484_Supreme_Court_vaccine_makers.html)).
