Ashley’s story


Claude Strass and his family endured a horrible ordeal due to an incompetent health care facility in their hometown, Inverness, Florida that neglected to administer the correct anti-malaria medication prior to a trip to Africa, but failed to recognize the symptoms of the ailment, and when he begged for help from the Center for Disease Control, he was rebuffed by the hospital staff.

Ashley, a beautiful, intelligent child, allowed to die from malaria by a neglent staff of medical professionals.

Ashley’ story in her father’s words are on the web site –  www.denied-justice.com look for the tab Ashley’s story.

Claude commented to a story here and his words bring tears that such a thing can happen in a country (USA) where we have the best health care available, testing facilities and specialists in all fields.

Claude’s comment:     

Humanity is an interesting thing.In the case of Ashley Strass’ death, we have been surrounded by so much love and compassion. Our neighbors, friends, relatives, strangers, people in restaurants and stores who knew our Ashley, a doctor in the airport putting life back in her body, employees from the airlines Ashley was flying on comforting Ashley and her mom, the federal officers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention working so hard to support our family. We have been so blessed to have so many concerned.

Now comes all those professionals who had the opportunity to protect or save Ashley’s life. Not one of them has ever shown our family any compassion. They all try to withhold information, cover up, make excuses or just plain refuse to talk to us. We will not let our little angel be treated as a piece of rotten fruit to be disregarded and forgotten.

Ashley had such a great life and future ahead of her, and so many dreams of what the future would bring. We as a people must stop making excuses for those who failed our little angel and stand up for her because she cannot speak for herself.

There are two stories here: One is our little girl’s tragic death, and the other the defective and broken medical system that almost also took Ashley’s mom and unborn little brother. We must as a community work together to put accountability back in this system along with responsibility. We cannot let Ashley’s death have no purpose. Let’s rally around this little girl’s tragedy to correct a broken health care system so it doesn’t fail another mother, father, brothers and sisters.

I also must thank the Citrus County Chronicle for telling Ashley’s story. They did a wonderful job.

    • I am so disgusted that we have NO recourse for the action of these taxpayer supported organizations that are there to help – supposedly. Someone sent a link to me to send a letter to all the congress and senate at one time. I am planning to do a letter with links to documents to send. However, the petition I started is about over and I can print the list of signers and attach that.

      Something has to work.

        It is clear now that the CDC had very many people running around doing many different things without any coordination, good communication, or common goals and too much editing and editorials which leaves one with so many conflicting issues and supposed facts that it is impossible to determine what really happened.

        Where are all the actual documents instead of so many third party conversations and emails. There are a number of items covered in the FOIA response in which I have first hand information actually reported incorrectly by the CDC. Where is the 6 foot time line document prepared by Liz Harton CDC officer or the final conclusions on why the Citrus County health department did not provide proper pre travel treatments, why the misdiagnosis of Ashley Strass at the Case Hospital and Life Link, Why the reporting of Ashley’s death at the Reason Hospital was delayed, and why Ashley died in the Reston Hospital after arriving with a normal blood pressure? Why the Virgina Medical Examiner’s office refused to test for malaria when it was requested by both Claude Strass and the CDC? Why the Citrus County misdiagnosed Tracey Strass’ malaria case and almost died until Claude Strass contacted Liz Harton from the CDC for help?

        Is it normal for so many facts to be missing and substituted by many duplicate 3rd party emails with so many miss facts and distortions?

        We believed in the CDC’s integrity, ability, and representations for almost 2 years based on the periodic updates until we finally saw the in compete and incompetence in their FOIA documents released with so many actual facts and original documentation withheld ( more than 70% of the pages were duplicate after duplicate).

        This experience has been so very disturbing that has effected me as much as the loss of my daughter.

        The only things we know for sure is a mosquito bite caused malaria and that our Ashley is dead and Tracey and our son almost died all from not receiving proper medical care from many medical facilities at many different levels.

        The results speak for themselves so many medical records from so many medical facilities and services are missing (they don’t just disappear). So we are forced to rely on here say, and 3rd party discussions they are heavily audited and redacted .

        My family and wife deserve better..

        Sincerely,

      • Hi Claude, thank you for the link. It is good coverage – so glad you are able to get your cause out. It is important that people know what can happen under the best situations.

        God bless.
