About a month ago my 19 year old brother was hit with meningitis. No one expected his sudden death. He’d been having a bad migraine and flu-like symptoms that morning. His girlfriend had told him to go in to the doctor, but he refused, because he is so stubborn. When she came home that evening, she found my young brother had died. Taylor had died of meningitis in his own home, without ever even knowing that he had it. Taylor had had a life threatening accident 2 years previously which left him without his spleen. This is something that is needed in the process to fight things off, and he didn’t have it. Taylor was taken at way too young of an age. Meningitis is something that everyone needs to vaccinated for, because it can hit you without even expecting it!
