"Thank you Meningitis Now! My baby, Oliver, was 6 weeks old when he was taken into hospital with bacterial meningitis. After spending 3 weeks on the children's ward being treated, it is thanks to so much research he's here. He was over 5 weeks premature so he'd already been through a lot! He is now 5 months old and the happiest baby. Thank you again❤❤❤"

Along with learning and being aware of all the possible signs and symptoms of meningitis, we always urge people to trust their instincts. It's often the strongest indicator that something is wrong, with a disease that presents early as many common viruses.

This is Harry. Today marks two years since meningitis took his young life - he was only 8 months old.
Harry's parents have asked us to share these devastating images to raise awareness of both meningitis and the availability of the Men B vaccine (Men B being the strain Harry contracted). Louise and John, thank you for your bravery [ Link ]

“We now know as parents if your child is not getting better but steadily getting worse your instincts kick in and persistence for help can improve the outcome. You know your children, the doctors, although medically trained, don’t know them like you do.”

Hannah's Story
