Stacie Matson

In addition to co-founding ParentsForHealthChoice,   Stacie is an active member/supporter of Texas Values, Alliance for Defending Freedom, Texans for Vaccine Choice, and American Center for Law and Justice.

 Most importantly, she is a mother to a severely vaccine injured son, Sam. 


Sam’s tragic story is sadly typical of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). He had been developing normally until his 18 months shots. As a stay home mom, Stacie journaled everyday about each new word Sam spoke and milestone he reached.  Then, suddenly, following a routine round of MMR and Varicella shots, he began to regress.  In her journals over the next several months, Stacie chronicled Sam’s loss of all speech and eye contact, and his newly emerging obsessive behaviors. The pediatrician who had assured Stacie that vaccines could not possibly harm her son was speechless when Stacie brought Sam back in to show his obvious regression. Sam’s injury is so severe, that today he is 17 years old and still requires full time care. 


Stacie is not anti-vaccine. She is pro-informed choice, believing that there must be a risk-benefit assessment for each vaccine given, for each child, rather than a blanket mandate for all.  As Stacie often says, “My child is already vaccine injured…I’m fighting for yours.”

  

Stacie hopes that her family’s story can help someone else. She gladly shares her decades of medical research with new parents who seek truth about vaccine safety, and with parents whose children have unfortunately already regressed into autism, autoimmune disorders, and neurological disorders following vaccines.

Angie is the mother of three fully-vaccinated daughters.  Luckily, her daughters were born 20+ years ago when there were less than 28 vaccines on the schedule and, thankfully, none had any severe reactions.  Had she known then what she does now,  she would have been much more selective in choosing which vaccines to give and when.


Angie became interested in vaccine safety when her niece developed cancer.  Through research, Angie learned that vaccines contain a number of toxic chemicals that are known carcinogens.  These include aluminum, mercury (in the form of thimerosal) and formaldehyde.  Although there was no way to prove any of these caused her niece's cancer, this discovery led to thorough research and a true understanding of the risks of vaccines.  Angie is determined to share this information with other parents in the hope that it will help them make the best possible vaccine decisions for their children.


Angie holds an accounting degree and an M.B.A. from Texas A&M University.  After working for many years in public and corporate accounting positions, she retired and turned her attention to raising her daughters and volunteering.  Over the past 20 years, Angie has served as a board member and officer of numerous non-profit organizations including LeaderSteps, the Boerne Education Foundation, the Acrobatic Gymnastics Foundation, and the PTOs at all of her daughters’ schools.

Beverly Albrecht

Beverly has a passion for helping others and is the owner of a health and wellness company called Empower Health Naturally, where she shares natural health by showing others how to have a toxin-free, healthy lifestyle. She became very interested in natural health, as well as vaccines, when her husband received a cancer diagnosis in 2012.


While raising three children, she went on a mission to find out how to help their father overcome this significant health challenge.  After countless hours of research, Beverly saw substantial concerns about the toxic effects of traditional cancer treatment as well as the effects of toxins from our environment.  As a result, they opted for a natural treatment to the cancer.  By focusing on promoting health and choosing a natural path, her husband overcame cancer.


It was during her research that Beverly learned about the toxins in vaccines and the possible links to cancers and chronic diseases.  Like natural cures for cancer, Beverly realizes that the research about the toxins in vaccines and their adverse effects was out there but that it wasn’t easily found or readily known. She believes it is very important to create awareness and improve vaccine safety.  In addition to teaching health and wellness classes through her company, Beverly actively volunteers in her daughter's school and the community.  She has a marketing and telecommunications background and a business degree with a marketing emphasis from Texas A&M, Commerce, Texas.
