It can affect so many people in so many ways and can strike at any time without warning

Fiona and her husband, Simon, lost their 16-month-old son Cy to meningitis in October 2007. Cy passed away just 24 hours after contracting the disease.

“The day before Cy was happily playing in the garden” Fiona said. “I had no idea it could develop so quickly. This is why the vaccine needs to be introduced – because meningitis is so quick and indiscriminate. It can affect so many people in so many ways and can strike at any time without warning – there’s no template.”
