His official cause of death was swelling of the brain, which his mother, Lori Webb, is convinced was caused by the flu shot.
Does that mean the vaccine is not safe?Continue Reading >

His father, Scott McCabe, is convinced that it is indeed the spirit of his son watching over his family. You've got to see the picture to believe it.Continue Reading >
