What is all the scientific success and achievements worth if it does not reach the patients?

Meningitis Now - Meningitis Now is a charity with almost 30 years’ experience. Formed in October this year by bringing together Meningitis UK and Meningitis Trust, founders of the meningitis movement in the UK. We exist to save lives and rebuild futures by funding research, raising awareness and providing support. Meningitis is still very much present in our lives today - it can happen in an instant but its impact will last a lifetime. There are as many as 500,000 people living in the UK today who have had either viral or bacterial meningitis at some time in their lives. Added to this are their family and friends who also feel the impact of the disease on their lives too. Our vision is a future where no one in the UK loses their life to meningitis and everyone affected gets the support they need to rebuild their lives.

on the 18th January 2009, my daughter Enya-Leigh was born. I took her home that night and everything appeared to be fine. Like all first time mums it was all a bit new and every cry was the same. she was eating and sleeping as a new born should.

on day 5 she had a very mild temperature, which came and went. The midwife came and said she was fine and it was the flat that was warm. The following evening she was sick. My mother rushed us into A&E where they measured her head, which had swollen and took her into her own room. with loads of consultants and doctors and nurses around her, i didn't know what was happening, till I heard the word.... 'lumberpuncher' at that moment my mother turned to me and said 'they think its meningitis' .

When i heard that awful word i thought she was going to die. after the lumberpuncher and body scan we was taken to the star light ward. it took a few hours to get the results back from the lumberpuncher which confirmed it was meningitis. then took a further 48 hours to find out what type. It came back as the bacterial meningitis. this meant the following hours where critical and we wasn't sure to what exstent she would be effected. she was on medication every 4 hours for 2 weeks and got stronger and stronger. Enya was a lucky girl, to this day she has no after effects but a lot of children with the same condition loose their sight, their hearing, have learning difficulties and more..... but one other effect is death.

I am doing this fund-raiser to help other families and people effected. meningitis can effect anyone at anytime. so lets pull together and raise awareness. Thank you x
