This is Faye and This is Meningitis.

On Sunday 14th February 2016, beautiful 2 year old Faye couldn't fight any longer and died with her mummy and daddy. Ive personally know Faye's mum Jenny since school through my best friend Emma, i knew that she was a tough cookie, but i didn't know just how tough, strong and brave she is until now. 

Faye fought for a whopping 2 weeks with meningitis and at times, we really thought she would come through, so to receive the news on monday morning was not only heartbreaking but shocking. 

Faye, and her so very brave mum has given permission to share this photo to raise awareness. No it's not nice but it's reality, and it's what this disease did to Faye which made her sadly lose her life on Sunday. 

Please sign and share the petition with the link below - We are trying to get parliament to reconsider charging us hundreds of pounds each to protect our children from this. In Faye's legacy we will fight to raise awareness and thankfully with the help of facebook, the uk today hit the 100,000 signatures needed, but we still want more !

Jen & Neils words :

Faye was taken to A&E with a rash on her forehead, she was then transferred by south bank retrieval service to Evelina children's hospital where her heart stopped in the ambulance, they revived her and spent hours working on stabilising her, we were given a 1% survival rate but she proved them wrong and carried on fighting, after a few days she seemed to have turned a corner but the the sepsis started to effect her more & the decision of limb removal was made, but the extent of removal was massive, full leg amputation and one arm and plastic surgery, but she was getting tired, her little body consumed by meningitis and sepsis (blood poisoning) we had to make the decision, a massive operation and she may die or we let her go peacefully on her own accord, we decided the latter & then watched our little girl slip away & at 9pm February 14th she finally fell asleep forever. All this in only 11days.

Play forever in peace Faye

The vaccination in question has a total cost of £450 per child, i myself (Charlene) am a mother of twins who could never afford something at that cost - its saddening that our lives and the lives of our children depend on the cost of something that would save someone. This petition is so important. Please make sure you sign it and your signature doesnt count until you verify it with en email they send you at your email address.
