One of our charities that money raised through our Virgin Money Giving site is to go to Meningitis Now, this is an important charity to us as little Louis had this at 8 weeks old.
I had amazing support from the Meningitis team in the week that I camped out by Louis side, it was the scariest moment of my life when I saw his lifeless body on the hospital bed, on turning up to A&E with him and they told me it was suspected Meningitis my heart broke.
Louis is one of the lucky ones and fully recovered from his illness, I can put this down to having such a great support, the fast reaction of the A&E team and an amazing Nanny that noticed something was seriously wrong with him. Meningitis takes hold very quickly and in some cases like Louis the symptoms can develop in just a few hours.
Please take a view moments to familiarise yourself with the signs of meningitis as it could save a life, read more HERE.
