Hello, my name is Julie Green. In January 2012 my son Louie contracted meningococcal septicaemia at the age of 5 months old. 

He spent 11 weeks in hospital, two of which were in intensive care, and ended up having both legs below the knees and the fingers on his left hand amputated.

He showed signs of a tummy upset for about seven hours before the classic rash appeared and he became floppy and grey.

Our mission as a family is to teach people as much as possible about this disease to help prevent people suffering from these terrible after-effects.
