Alexis Rose story

Alexis Rose, our beautiful baby daughter, was 19 months old
when she died very suddenly of meningitis in 2011. She had bags of personality and was by nature a fighter- born nearly 3 months early and weighing 2lb 12ounces she spent a while in hospital alongside her twin sister but quickly grew in strength. She was always laughing and making us laugh, we will never forget her toothy smile and the way she would look over to make sure people were watching before she did something naughty. She was so happy and healthy and we
never dreamed that anything could ever take her away from us, but meningitis ended her life within hours. We decided to continue Alexis's fight and refuse to let meningitis beat us, by raising money and awareness of this disease for
Meningitis Now.

Lil Beths story. 

On Saturday May the 10 in 2008 something happened that
changed our lives forever.  Sat at lunchtime in a restaurant in Germany, our then 5 year old daughter Lillie-Beth told us that she had a headache and it was really hurting her. She said that the sun was too bright, really bright and that it was hurting her eyes. She put my sun glasses on, got on my knee and instantly fell asleep. When she woke, she had a raging temperature. We did the usual thing that parents do and gave her calpol and monitored her. At 8 o clock she was fast asleep again. At 1130pm we were in bed, she was
sleeping with us so we could continue to monitor her and she suddenly let out a huge cry and her breathing at that moment changed…it just changed….it was very
fast and shallow, it was like she couldn’t catch her breathe properly.
 She was being violently sick but was not responsive and she was very
weary.  She had cold hands and cold feet but also she had a severe
temperature. Her neck was rigid. Garry immediately told me that something was seriously wrong, he knew about meningitis – she was floppy, she was boiling hot, she was wincing in pain….she had all of the signs and symptoms but no rash. We took her in the car to the local German hospital which was 20 minutes
drive away.  Upon arrival, I had Lillie-Beth in my arms and at this point
she was completely lifeless. We rushed in and Garry mentioned the word meningitis…we were seen immediately.  They took her from my arms and laid her on a bed…..still she was completely lifeless…They did some immediate tests and they told us that they also thought she had meningitis and that they needed to do a lumbar puncture on her to confirm their fears…..I will never ever ever get the scream out of my head as they pushed that needle into her spine, as
they drew the fluid out of her spine, the doctor knew it was serious.  His face said it all and the urgency of dealing with her intensified further. A whole team of people were rushing in and out of the room doing different things to our little girl. We had to wait for 40 minutes for tests to be carried out to confirm their suspicions.  That 40 minutes seemed to last a life time, Garry and I were in a room, our daughter laid flat out in front of us and there was nothing at all that we could do.  She was lifeless.  Within an hour of arriving at hospital, we were in intensive care with Lil, the doctors told us that she had contracted meningococcal septicaemia and that the next 48 -72 hours were critical.

Calums story

Calum was Margarets nephew who passed away at the age of 12 in October 2007.  Her aim is to raise as much awareness as possible about the impact Meningitis has on families and to make people aware of the signs and symptons. She is an ambassador for the charity and has been active since Calums passing. So far the Family and friends of Calum have raised over £88000.
