Losing a child to meningitis, like I lost my beloved Mathias in the summer of 2019, is the most devastating thing that can happen to a parent.

My son suffers many after effects from meningitis, including hearing loss and convulsions. All children should be protected from meningitis.
As I said goodbye to my beautiful daughter, I promised I would be her voice. We must defeat meningitis so it cannot continue to destroy lives around the world.
Meningitis and septicaemia are medical emergencies. Prevention and early recognition are key.
Meningitis can affect anyone, at any time. It can kill in hours.
We can all help to #DefeatMeningitis.
