Ricky Mclellen

My son Ricky McLellan had meningococcal septicaemia at 12 days old.

He is 30 now. He has lots of damage - learning disabilities, left side muscle wastage, atrophy of the brain, epilepsy, so many things to mention.

It's a horrible illness and time is of the essence. Please keep fighting to help everyone.
