ST. PETERSBURG — An aspiring model and open-heart surgery survivor is about to enter a new chapter in life that she never imagined prior to receiving experimental shots.
Ms. Claire Bridges isn’t the typical 20-year-old woman. She was born with a congenital heart defect (aortic valve stenosis), which led to open-heart surgery at age 9. Survival rates after said surgery is typically in line with the population at-large if the right lifestyle changes are made. But the foregoing data are related to people over age 65. Post aortic valve surgery is “associated with inferior long-term survival” in young people, according to a 2018 study in the journal Frontiers in Surgery. Studies notwithstanding, Ms. Bridges appears to have overcome the odds and was living a life like any other young adult coming into their own.
Ms. Bridges is vegan. She has a dog and a big lizard for pets. Ms. Bridges also loves nature and writing. She introduced herself to the world in an October 6, 2018 video on her YouTube channel (which is now private). Ms. Bridges genuinely seems to care for other people, particular strangers.
She’s worked at Grassroots Kava House since at least 2020. But what Ms. Bridges really wanted to do is modeling. She seemed a little bashful about it at first, based on her Twitter feed from 2017 at age 15-16 (she’s “Bee” in the following thread).
The first reference to modeling on Facebook is January 31, 2020. If you look close enough, you can see the scar from her open heart surgery.
Ms. Bridges posted several modeling photos from Los Angeles this past September.
That means she was doing shoots in the COVID-19 dystopia capital of the United States. It also means she needed a “vaccine passport” if she wished to visit Los Angeles again after November 29. The story picks up from there.
Health deteriorated rapidly
It’s unclear when exactly Ms. Bridges received her mRNA injections (since nobody gets the Johnson & Johnson shots anymore in the U.S.). But several friends and family members made public that Ms. Bridges was fighting for her life at Tampa General Hospital on January 19. Thus, based on similar stories we’ve covered on this blog and the circumstances herein, it’s likely she just recently received the injections in November or later.
Ms. Kimberly White-Smith, Claire’s mother, described the dire situation that day. Ms. Bridges was diagnosed with so-called COVID-19 on January 13. She went to the emergency room that day because, well, it wasn’t COVID. It was a severe adverse reaction to the injection(s). Regardless, Ms. Bridges was discharged that night. She was back in the ER on January 14 with severe leg pain. Doctors checked for blood clots, but apparently found nothing. Ms. Bridges was sent home again.
Her condition seemed to improve on Sunday, January 16, according to Ms. White-Smith. Doctors acknowledged that “there was more going on than the general COVID issues,” she said. Ms. Bridges suffered three cardiac arrests that day, but doctors resuscitated her each time. She underwent surgery to implant a TandemHeart percutaneous life support platform. It helps deliver oxygenated blood throughout the body while taking pressure off the heart to do so.
Ms. Bridges was also connected to a dialysis machine and a feeding tube. She was taking daily blood thinner and antibiotics. But her condition still worsened, particularly related to atrophy of her leg muscles.
Amputations and long road to recovery
Mr. Wayne Bridges is Claire’s father. He was the first to hint that leg amputation were imminent due to Claire’s worsening condition.
Ms. Anna Bridges Brown is Claire’s sister. She’s provided near-daily updates on her sister’s condition since late January. The situation was dire on January 20. But Claire was aware that her sister was present, and waved at her.
By January 25, Claire was off the sedatives, able to speak a bit more, and responded more to her family being present.
This past Monday, January 31, Ms. Bridges’ left arm was swollen bigger than her right arm. Doctors tested for blood clots, but found nothing. They continued prepping Ms. Bridges for the amputations.
The surgeries took place on Tuesday, February 1. Her left leg was amputated below the knee. Anna said the right leg was “above the ankle.” It’s unclear what exactly she meant by that, since above the ankle to a layperson would mean the entire leg. She may be talking about a Syme amputation, which removes the foot and retains the heal. Regardless, the family concedes that further surgeries may be needed that may lead to complete removal of both legs.
The last update was on Wednesday. Anna said Claire was talking in a “whispery voice.” She struggled to cough up fluids in her throat, and gets really cold because her blood is not at normal, natural temperatures. She’s on breathing treatments and will commence physical therapy this week.
“Things will keep getting better from here,” Anna wrote.
Later that evening, Anna said Claire was smiling and watching Scooby-Doo on television.
There are two GoFundMe campaigns to raise money for Ms. Bridges’ prosthetics and ongoing medical bills. The two campaigns have raised over $120,000 as of publishing. Note that the highest-quality prosthetic legs cost upwards of $50,000 each. But even the most expensive ones only last for up to five years. In other words, Ms. Bridges is facing an uncertain future.
All of the mainstream media stories blame COVID-19 for Ms. Bridges’ current situation. We’re not even going to dignify said stories by linking them.
Women bearing the brunt of vaccine adverse reactions?
After covering this subject matter for a year, not much is clear as far as far as adverse reactions by demographics. Everyone is at risk of immediate, post-injection death. But White women appear to be most susceptible to prolonged, debilitating adverse reactions without dying immediately.
Three stories recalled immediately where the victim died within 24 hours of the injections are all men.
- Benjamin Goodman: 32-year-old New York stagehand dead 24 hours after Johnson & Johnson viral vector shot (March 21, 2021)
- John Francis Foley: 21-year-old University of Cincinnati student dead 24 hours after Johnson & Johnson shot (April 14, 2021)
- Carlos Tejada: 49-year-old Wall Street Journal and New York Times writer posts booster shot photo on Instagram, dead hours later (December 25, 2021)
Of course two of the foregoing are the result of the extremely lethal, seldom-used Johnson & Johnson shots. There are also several other men who died within a week of their injections on this blog. But women are just as likely to die fast. Ms. Drene Keyes died less than an hour after her Pfizer injection almost a year ago today. Ms. Karen Hudson-Samuels died 24 hours after her mRNA shot around the same time as Ms. Keyes. Ms. Sharon Beaudry died 24 hours after her Pfizer injection in April. Post-injection death is equal opportunity.

Mainstream media and some scientific studies claim that men are more susceptible to post-injection myocarditis and pericarditis. But we’ve seen no significant difference in men and women thereof. Convulsions and neurological issues are almost exclusively female victims.
Ms. Bridges is the third post-injection amputee covered here. Mrs. Jummai Nache is the Nigerian American woman who needed both legs and hands amputated after her Pfizer injections in July. Mr. David Mears is the British man who had his left leg amputated in May after a severe post-AstraZeneca reaction. Thus there are no real patterns in this small sample size for amputations.
Point is that it’s almost impossible to pin certain adverse reactions to certain groups. These injections do not see race, sex, age or economic status. Ms. Bridges is yet another young soul who will never experience life as she expected and worked for because of these injections. It’s sad because she likely just recently received the shots despite all the readily-available information out there about the dangers.
Perhaps Ms. Bridges will be a trendsetter – be the first Miss America with prosthetic legs. This young lady overcame so much as a child, only to be derailed by COVID propaganda and dystopia. All we can do is wish her the best. Stay vigilant and protect your friends and loved ones.
