As parents whose children have died or live with permanent disabilities as a result of meningococcal disease, NMA understands the devastating impact this disease has on individuals, families and friends.

As an organization committed to educating about meningococcal disease and prevention, those involved in NMA share their personal experiences in hopes of preventing other families from having to endure the effects of this fast-acting and dangerous disease. We’ve also found that when coping with the illness or loss of a child, it can help to know you’re not alone.

If you or someone you know has been affected by meningococcal disease, please share your story with us using the form below. Please note, your story will not be shared publicly without your permission.
