Meningitis Research Foundation is sorry to hear that Ava Dorrans, three-month old daughter of West Bromwich Albion footballer Graham Dorrans is in intensive care in hospital with meningitis. We join family and friends in wishing her a good recovery.

Chris Head, Chief Executive adds:

“This case demonstrates how meningitis and septicaemia can strike anyone, of any age, at any time and why MRF continually campaigns to raise awareness of the symptoms, fund vital research and support those affected. We need everyone’s help if we are going to deliver our vision of a world free from meningitis and septicaemia.
