I'm a part of an organization called Meningitis-Angels. They're the first website I came across after Landan passed away & I was looking for information about Meningitis. I wanted to understand every detail about it. I wrote up Landan's story & it was added to their website. Anyways yesterday Frankie (the organization owner) wrote me on Facebook letting me know that the Ohio AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) wrote her asking to use our story to educate parents & doctors about Meningitis in Ohio. So they emailed me yesterday afternoon & I responded giving them permission to use our story & sent pictures like they asked. I'm not 100% sure yet how they're going to use his story, but I asked that she let me know. Anywoo, we're pretty excited about it!

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.

I read your story in one of your other posts and it is absolutely heartbreaking. I don't want to sound like I'm gushing but I wanted to let you know that I'm amazed at your selflessness and bravery. I think it is wonderful that you are able to find some peace in using your story to educate others.

Oh wow. I wonder if his picture will end up in a vaccine commercial or something. Maybe posters in pediatric offices?

I agree that you are incredibly brave to use his story to educate parents about meningitis.

Thanks everyone! I didn't hear back from them yet regarding how the story will be used. But I'm sure it is in good hands.
