Had this mom in Africa had access to a vaccine that could have prevented her family and even her own life from being taken, I have no doubt that she would have chose the vaccine. Instead she had to make a choice to let one child go in order to try and save her other children. Now her little family is just gone with the exception of a heartbreaking photo of “The Little Boy on the Bucket” a lasting symbol of what can happen when deadly disease strikes and there is not a vaccine
Finally a mother who made a choice not to vaccinate but instead expose her child to a possibly deadly disease.
One simply has to walk around an old cemetery to realize the value of vaccine. For me it is a constant pain in my heart, a stroll down a hallway filled with pictures and memories of my sweet boy and a grave stone with his name.
For the thousands of parents in the Ebola outbreak it is trying to survive, not being able to comfort their children, while stepping over other dead children in the streets.
For the parent who chooses not to vaccinate but expose their children to deadly disease, I have only these words. I believe if infants and children had a choice of a vaccine over deadly and debilitating disease they would choose vaccine. They don’t have a voice or a choice. We have to be that voice, the voice truth, real science, prevention and life
How many must be debilitated or die and how many tears must we cry before they listen.

Then the announcement came brining extreme joy and excitement to our family. The first baby in 12 years was to be born into our family.
Mom was given the Tdap during pregnancy.
I thought about a sweet family in Texas, whose baby, in and emergency was delivered, by dad, at home. Grand pa had been ill for a few weeks with what was thought to be a cold then dad began to show the same symptoms with a bad cough.
This beautiful healthy baby girl was born and one month later she died from pertussis. If only the vaccine had been recommended or required as it is in some states now.
Those of us throwing the baby shower for baby Shawn, decided to ask everyone who was attending the shower, who plan to visit or hold the baby be vaccinated with Tdap and bring proof to the shower.
Thus a gift for Baby Shawn.
Vaccines are the gift of life and love for our infants, children and teens. Remeber adults and the elderly need vaccines too.
Pertussis is a deadly vaccine preventable disease. Thousands of infants have died in recent years form this deadly vaccine preventable disease.
We at Meningitis Angels challenge all of those who are celebrating the birth of a new baby be vaccinated.
