Ryan Gassner:
My condolences for the previous speaker and what she was speaking towards. It's way too close to home, so I'm trying to gather myself up because I had a little breakdown previous.

Trish Wood:
Okay, well, we're here and we're listening, so please.

Ryan Gassner:
Okay. So myself, I'm representing my daughter. She's 19 as well. And she just actually suffered a lot of the same issues as the previous. She actually was diagnosed years ago with learning disabilities. So we have a full guardianship of her for her medical history and her medical direction. And more importantly, she's had a history of autoimmune disorders prior. So we sent her off to a program, transition to employment program at a local college with a live in roommate to a sister. And they brought in the mandatory vaccination requirements and she's reacted to vaccines previous. So we decided not to have her vaccinated. Unfortunately, she went in under her own steam to a pharmacy and actually got vaccinated with the misunderstanding that she was getting a test. So long story short, three weeks after that, she had her first mild clonic seizure or tonic clonic seizure. Since that was a ambulatory trip to the hospital. Check over. Everything's fine. Sent her home. She went to school again about another three weeks after she had another seizure at school. Ambulance ride again. Emergency room. She had another seizure about two weeks after that, right in front of her work experience.

Ryan Gassner:
Class of three year old toddlers. At that point, we decided to end the program. We pulled her out, brought her home, put her under 24 seven care. Luckily we did. She had another seizure very shortly after where she smashed her head in the shower. Luckily, we got her out of the shower, made it into the emergency room. We were worried that she actually hurt her head. But from there forward, we did see two showers only for her. She said seeing a neurologist, she's probably had over 100 seizures of various sorts. They're claiming. That. What's the. It's progressive. My clonic epilepsy. And so the prognosis is it's just going to continue to get worse and worse and worse. So she's got 24 seven care. We've had to pull her out of basically every activity. She can't be anywhere outside. We've had seizures in the car. Yeah, it's. Unbelievable. My wife and I haven't been out of the house together since. I'm extremely lucky she's still alive because we've had situations where she stopped breathing for several minutes.

Trish Wood:
Did she ever have seizures before or was this a brand new?

Ryan Gassner:
She was she was diagnosed when she was 11 with what they call back then. They called them petite mal seizures or absent seizures. And she was on valproic acid ever since and was under full control and never had another seizure, ever. Well, since then. But exactly three weeks after the first dose, she's never had the second dose. Only only the one. And yeah, we're we're well over 100 now.

Trish Wood:
100 seizures.

Ryan Gassner:
Yes.

Trish Wood:
Oh, my.

Ryan Gassner:
Goodness. Well, three a week right now.

Trish Wood:
And.

Ryan Gassner:
Taking 19 pills a day. To mute. Seizures.

Trish Wood:
So what does that mean for the quality of her life? What what is the quality of her life right now?

Ryan Gassner:
She's essentially able to handle being out of the house for about an hour a day. She essentially sleeps. 16 to 18 hours a day. Her cognitive function has halved. So she's functioning at the at a below the lowest level of a Down's syndrome kid. Her. Her entire life is torn away now.

Trish Wood:
And are the medical professionals in your life accepting this is a vaccine injury or they.

Ryan Gassner:
Know we're still trying to pressure them to sign off on the vaccine injury claim forms.

Trish Wood:
And they're not.

Ryan Gassner:
They're not. They're still chasing other leads.

Trish Wood:
Right. I'll pass to the panel. I'm sure they have some questions for you. Thank you.

Preston Manning:
Well, thank you for sharing your story. Was the vaccination she got the Pfizer vaccine?

Ryan Gassner:
Yeah, it was a Pfizer vaccine and it was without consent. Yeah. So we pursued this with the RCMP. And we were told due to the fact that the pharmacist followed procedure, there's no charges to be laid. We expanded on legal action as well. And we've got just to the point where it was we choose paying for 24 seven care for her or we pursue lawsuit. Choice of funds allocation.

Preston Manning:
Well, we feel there's nothing we can say except to thank you for sharing your story. But I think we should point out to you and to others that have shared their stories. The point of sharing these stories is not just to get the story, it's to figure out a way to bring these stories to bear before authorities where there has to be some answer as to how to handle this situation. So your story serves a double purpose.

Ryan Gassner:
Well, we're lucky that we were able to bring her home and care for her. I think we would have lost her as well if we didn't. Yeah. Yeah. But the facts are, she's one place that we we've been exploring the future for her lately, trying to figure out where. Where we can find a place where she can at least have some purpose and be safe. And we found a few facilities. However, the cost is upwards of $300,000 a year. Oh, good, good. And there's no funding for that. And we we live at home. That's the only option we have.

Preston Manning:
Okay. Well, thank you for this.

Trish Wood:
Thanks, Mr. Gassner, we're very grateful to you. Thank you for doing this. Good luck to you.

Ryan Gassner:
Thanks.
