    Sad and disgusting.

    As Toni held her tiny baby, she couldn’t comprehend the loss, or how they would survive the sorrow.

    Little did they know then that Dana’s death from whooping cough, and the media coverage that followed, came to represent a very inconvenient truth to the anti-vaccination lobby – and thus began an extraordinary campaign against this grieving family.

    The McCafferys are today breaking their silence on the cyber bullying,the anonymous letters and the cruelty of some members of the anti-vaccination movement.

    The couple has been accused of being on the payroll of drug companies; they have had their daughter’s death questioned and mocked; they have even been told to “harden the f . . . up” by an opponent of vaccination.

    “The venom directed at us has just been torture and it’s been frightening, abhorrent and insensitive in the extreme,” says Toni, who has not had the strength to talk about this until now.

    Whooping cough?! Seriously?!

    Thanks, anti-vaxers. Diseases that we thought would never come back have well...come back.

    This is as much a phenomenom of the internet age as anything to do with vaccines.
