Pneumococcal meningitis at 7 weeks/15 years

Pneumococcal meningitis

I was seven weeks old when I contracted Pneumococcal Meningitis, the hospital said it was nothing but that was just risking my life. I survived it and I try to raise awareness.

Who knows what would happen if that one doctor who saved my life had not been born. I say thank you to him now.
