I want to not only spread awareness of this virus but to help younger people become aware of what it does and how to prevent it
I am sixteen years old and go to Warwick school. I enjoy my rugby a lot and had the honour to play at Twickenham last year in the cup final for Warwick School under fifteen team. I am currently studying towards my GCSE's and also enjoy playing the drums on a regular basis.My brother Barney contracted meningitis at the age of three and a half and I was five. We used to be very close and he could easily have been my twin. Shortly after my brother passed away my family started to spread awareness of how the disease affects not only the victim, but also the people and family around the person.
