She doesn’t quite grasp the magnitude of her fight. Five years ago, she was admitted to PICU at 5 weeks old. Nobody thought she would survive pneumococcal meningitis and septicaemia let alone recover without any apparent detriment. She’s my hero ❤️
I am looking for the help of any of the amazing small businesses we follow and support! Really good friends of ours have found themselves in the most heartbreaking situation with their little boy having meningitis. He is such an amazing little fighter and is wowing all the drs and nurses with how much fight he has in him! - this is where we come in- I would love to make little Ollie a hamper of small shop goodies to make him smile while he is recovering. If any of you would be kind enough to donate anything (even just a small gift would be amazing) so we can put a smile back on this superstars face ⭐️ please tag any of your small shop friends (I've tagged a few of you) and message me if you can help ❤️❤️ thank you so much for reading 😘 #smallshops#smallshopsupporters#ollie#meningitisawareness#showsupport#treatsforollie#love
After far too long putting it off, I finally got my meningitis vaccination. Almost 4 years ago heaven took back a beautiful angel after she was struck down with meningitis. I would honestly urge anyone, especially those at or just starting university to get vaccinated against it! It look Emily’s life in about 6 hours with very few symptoms. I’d give anything to go back and cherish the time I had with her, I can’t do that but I can help to raise awareness! #meningitisnow#getthevaccine#meningitisawareness
Check out Kelsie & co at the finish line of Total Warrior 2017! This 22-strong team raised over £2000 for Meningitis Research Foundation, and we're so very grateful. Remember if you participate in any fundraising events for us, tag us! We'd love to share your snaps.⠀
Paws for thought.. check out our first blog marking meningitis awareness week. Can you recognise when your little one might have meningitis or sepsis? https://www.doctorbear.co.uk/single-post/2017/09/28/Can-you-spot-the-signs-of-meningitis #meningitisawareness#childhealth#sepsis#mumlife
Did you know we support @meningitis_research ? For every Brain brooch sold on the website £11.50 goes to Meningitis Research and for every one sold trade £5 goes to them too.
We're not just a pretty face. We're helping eradicate Meningitis and septicaemia and hoping no one has to suffer directly or indirectly from these devastating diseases.
Great weekend spent getting together to run & celebrate the life of Jessica while raising Meningitis Awareness and watching the Tide roll in Nash! I couldn't help but think of Jess when I saw this amazing sunset on the way back to Bham tonight #meningitisawareness#jme#rolltideroll
5 years ago. Within hours my whole life would've changed. I came to pick Regan's lifeless body up from the sitter. I ran carrying her across the terrace (the sitter lived in a condo building across from mine). I grabbed the thermometer and it stopped as it was approaching 105 and started beeping EMERGENCY. I ran a cool water bath to put her in and gave her ibuprofen immediately to break the fever before right rushing her to the ER. Thank God I did. By the time we got to the hospital her fever was at a 102 and they did a immediate spinal tap to see she had meningitis. So many deaths occur by this fast attacking disease. It takes a kids life within 1-2 days if unnoticed. If your child ever has neck pain and a fever at the same time - get them to the ER. Thank God my baby was treated quickly and after a week in ICU she came home to her normal joyful and healthy self. #meningitis#meningitisawareness#onlychild#love#thankyouGod
@meningitis_now "When it comes to meningitis, knowing the signs & symptoms is just one part of the puzzle. So many of our supporters tell us they 'just knew' or they 'had a gut feeling' that something was seriously wrong." Know the signs and symptoms, never wait for a rash and trust your instincts ➡️ www.mnow.co.uk
My platform is to raise awareness and understanding of meningitis. I aim to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms, I also aim to help direct those who have been affected to this wonderful charity. I have been unfortunate enough to have had meningitis twice within 4 years. It has left me with serious chronic illnesses which I really struggled to come to terms with. Without the support from this amazing charity I don't know how I would have coped! There are 2 main strains of meningitis- bacterial and viral. Unfortunately I contracted both strains. I aim to make people vigilant about the signs and symptoms. I will never forget going to bed thinking I was coming down with the flu- I had no rash so I didn't believe that my symptoms could have been meningitis as I was always told that a rash that didn't disappear when you pressed a glass over it was the 'warning sign'! For me I had extreme sensitivity to light, a blinding migraine, sickness, stiff neck, a fever and convulsions. My daughter (who was only 4 at the time) woke up and ran to get the phone and said "mummy call the doctor" I was too weak to speak or even hold the phone so she dialled 999. An ambulance arrived and I was rushed into hospital. I passed out and don't remember the next few days. I woke up to find out I had meningitis. Then my life changed forever!! Meningitis Now's vision is a future where no one in the UK loses their life to meningitis and everyone affected gets the support they need to rebuild their lives. I want to help in anyway I can by promoting this wonderful charity though my pageant platform and help educate and raise awareness. ❤️ #beautifullyinspiring#itsapageantgirlthing#crownandgloryscotland#crownandglory#womancrownandgloryscotlandfinalist

Friday we nearly lost my beautiful nephew. Thank god for the fast response of our local doctors in Galway who saved his life🙏🏼 It's #meningitis#awareness week and I urge everyone to be aware of the symptoms of this disease, it can kill within hours. It is most common in babies and infants. Our wee man is on the mend thank god but it will take time for full recovery, please help spread awareness💚 #savelifes#beaware#meningitisawareness
