On Thursday May 11, 2017, UFC fighter Nick Catone tucked his healthy, beautiful little boy, Nicholas, into his crib to the sound of him saying, “Goodnight Daddy.” In the morning, Marjorie Catone went to wake the baby. And, in that moment, everything shattered. Twenty-month old Nicholas was gone.
Marjorie says, “My husband and I are super healthy. We are both athletic: Nick is a retired professional athlete and we own a successful gym and help others stay healthy and fit. I was an RN for 11 years and worked in a cardiovascular ICU (Intensive Care Unit). In 2013, we had our first child Madeline, a now three-and-a-half-year-old who is beautiful and thriving. We got pregnant again around her first birthday with our son Nicholas who was born on September 8, 2015. I had two very healthy pregnancies, I never took prescription or recreational drugs, I only consumed a prenatal vitamin and omega 3 for both pregnancies. I had an epidural but no pitocin that I’m aware of. I breastfed Nicholas for nearly nine months and he was on whole organic milk at a year old. He began table foods a little before five months and loved to eat. I am very cautious as to what my children eat. I have always believed in home-cooked and organic foods. I always prepared their meals and limited sweets and snacks. Prior to the birth of my daughter, I completed an online course at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition and became a certified health coach. I also used essential oils on my children regularly and tried to treat them at home before rushing to the pediatrician’s office. I made their own bath soaps, shampoos, hand soaps, lotions, etc… I did everything right. And I vaccinated my children.”
Nick adds, Nick & Marjorie Catone agonizingly describe how their healthy 20 month old boy, Nicholas, died 17 days after a DTaP vaccination; and then the coverup.
“We noticed this past winter, though, that Nicholas seemed always sick: typical cold symptoms, occasional fevers and almost always related to visiting the pediatrician for a well visit and shots. Nicholas saw the pediatrician on January 3 this year for a persistent cold that lasted three weeks. They ordered antibiotics and one week later, on January 10, he had his 15-month well visit, where they administered the MMR. I took him back on February 3, with more cold-like symptoms that never seemed to go away and they prescribed antibiotics AGAIN – a triple whammy in one month!
Nick adds, “Marjorie was always making sure our kids were eating right and doing all right things. Nicholas would get your average cold or a fever once in a while but to me always seemed like it was after one of his shots and I always said that to Marjorie: ‘Every time he gets a shot, within the next few days he’s sick.’”
