Bruce's Story Video Transcript

Bruce Langoulant (Meningitis Centre Australia): “My youngest daughter at the time, Ashleigh, back in 1989 contracted pneumococcal meningitis. Ashleigh has never walked or talked, she has cerebral palsy, she's profoundly deaf, she has an intellectual disability and she just turned 30. Hers is a life that could have been magnificent, in a normal sense. It is still magnificent, but her life is totally different to ours. When she became ill there were no vaccines, so we are typical of those who might argue that vaccines aren't necessary. Healthy child, healthy family - why should we get ill? Just a reminder that you can."
