Desiree Jennings, 26, was a healthy Washington Redskins cheerleader who was training for a marathon when she was stricken with permanently debilitating symptoms following a flu shot administered in a local grocery store.
Here's her story in two parts.
(I had two video clips, but neither of them would post.)
Doctors have diagnosed her with Dystonia, a disabling disease for which there is no cure. Although the reports state that Desiree's reaction is rare, it doesn't make it any less significant and shouldn't diminish the deleterious impact on her future quality of life and of the lives of those around her.
