I'm so excited! Our story is up now on the National Meningitis Association website! It's sorta a "to the point" version of our story. Our story, read in full can be viewed on his memory-of page (http://www.landan-harris.memory-of.com)

I share Landan with as many people as I can, we even had pictures of him out around my hospital room when Layne was born. So this is an amazing thing for our story to be shared with a big organization!

My 3yr old son Landan died 23hrs after being diagnosed with Meningococcal Meningitis. It is a potentially vaccine preventable disease. The vaccine isn't on the schedule until 11-12yrs but is approved for use at age 2yrs. Our second son received the vaccine in December 2010 when he was 2yrs old. My son & thousands of other children prove that a vaccine is needed at a younger age.

That's great Lacey! And kudos to you for being so incredibly strong, I can't imagine the strength it takes to find the purpose in the loss of a child and use it to educate others.

I just really admire you, Lacey. I think the greatest loss a person can experience is the loss of a child. I am so in awe of you for taking that tragedy and using it to educate people. Thank you for sharing your story with us.

Thanks ladies for the wonderful things you've said! I feel that much awareness needs to be done for Meningitis, as I really didn't know anything about it when Landan got sick. So many people have told me the same thing - that they didn't know about it. I've always wanted to get involved in something to educate others. This is so very exciting for me!
