You can’t believe that a disease like that is out there. You just don’t believe it will happen to you

My daughter, Jodie and her now husband, Simon, lost their 13 month old daughter Mariah to meningitis in December 2010. 

Mariah showed little sign of being ill and there was nothing that could have alerted Jodie to anything other than teething troubles.

You can’t believe that a disease like that is out there. You just don’t believe it will happen to you.

Since our experience as a family of meningitis, we are determined to raise as much money as possible to stop other families going through the devastation of losing a loved one.
