I just want to ask if you'll keep a dear friend in your prayers if you can. Sherry is a member of "Meningitis Angels" she's a survivor of meningitis, but had a stroke during it. She's had heart & lung problems since. Surviving meningitis doesn't leave you untouched by any means, some people can die years later from organ failure. She went into the hospital for pneumonia a few days ago & now she's unresponsive & on a respirator. She has congestive heart failure because of having Meningitis & the damage it did to her body before. But she's a wonderful, wonderful person with an huge heart! I was unable to attend last year's Meningitis Angels conference in TX because I was pregnant so she sent the conference to me in a box so it felt like I was their. She also released a balloon in Landan's memory for me. She's a very special lady & if you could please pray she pulls through this again I'd appreciate it. Thanks ladies!

This is why I stress vaccination. You might survive the disease, but that doesn't mean you'll survive the damage it's done to your body.
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.
