Pedro Flores had his 11th birthday party over the weekend… the only problem was that just one of his classmates showed up to celebrate.

When Pedro's sister Edith saw that her little brother only had one friend attend, she took to social media to get the word out that she needed help.

Luckily, people from all across the Oxnard, CA community came out to support the 11-year-old with Autism.

We hope you had a great day, Pedro!!!

As our country's measles outbreak grows, the debate over vaccines becomes hotter than ever.

While many people, like the reputable Dr. Sanjay Gupta, believe vaccines are necessary to keep us happy and safe, there are just as many opponents on the issue.

Take Jenny McCarthy, for instance. Over the years, the actress has been very vocal announced her stance against vaccinations, the anti-vaccine movement has taken Hollywood by storm. In fact, 90 people in California were infected with measles just THIS YEAR.

Jenny kicked off the trend when she claimed that vaccine MMR (mumps-measles-rubella), caused her son, Evan, to develop Autism.

In an interview with Larry King in 2008, Jenny argued:

"Vaccines play the largest role right now in causing autism and something needs to be done."

Since her interview with Larry, Jenny has gone on to serve on the board of Generation Rescue, an organization dedicated to recovery for children with autism spectrum disorders and she elaborated on her anti-vaccine views in her book, Mother Warriors.

Hmm, we wonder if the measles outbreak has changed Donnie Wahlberg's wife's mind!

If you're curious to find out what other celebs are against vaccinations…

PETA Reignites Campaign That Claims Dairy Products Can Be Linked To Autism

peta reignites campaign dairy linked autism

This is bizarre!

PETA has uncorked a campaign that claims to have information about the link between "autism and dairy products."

Although PETA does not seem to be saying that dairy products cause autism - they are prepared to make the argument that dairy products can make autism worse.

And as Emily Willingham notes - the mere suggestion of a link is not sitting with some folks, at all. Here's what she wrote on Forbes:

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and the Allen Institute for Brain Science analyzed the genes in brain tissues of deceased children, which helped saved the lives of others.

A professor of neurosciences and director of the Autism Center of Excellence at UC San Diego said:
