I am looking forward to continuing to support this wonderful charity and to continue to educate as many people as possible about the signs and symptoms of meningitis

I was diagnosed with bacterial meningitis in January 2010 at the age of 32. 

I spent a week in hospital receiving treatment, a further two weeks at home receiving antibiotic treatment with the District Nursing Team and a further eight weeks at home recuperating.

My lasting effects are occasional severe headaches, so I count myself extremely lucky indeed as I know many others are not as fortunate. I am looking forward to continuing to support this wonderful charity and to continue to educate as many people as possible about the signs and symptoms of meningitis and how it can strike anyone, of any age and at any time.
