12yo left paralysed after HPV vaccine

A 12-year-old girl has been left paralysed from the neck down after suffering an alleged reaction to the HPV vaccine. Tragic Mia Blesky has no feeling in her arms or legs and is unable to lift her head or do anything but blink, talk and sing. Footage filmed days before she fell ill shows the talented youngster - who dreams of being a popstar - standing, clutching a microphone and belting out a tune. Harrowing videos show how her health shockingly deteriorated - as she shuffles before lying still in her adapted bed at home and croons softly, unable to move. Her mum, hair and makeup artist Gini Blesky, 37, says the symptoms of her debilitating illness were caused by controversial HPV vaccine Gardasil.
