teen dies from bacterial meningitis

14 year old boy dies from bacterial meningitis.

One day he was like everyone else and competed in a track meet and two days later he was rushed to the ER. He died five days later from bacterial meningitis. His body couldn't fight the damages the short lived infection caused.

Fundraisers are being held to pay for the medical expenses and the funeral expenses.

The family advises other families to get their children vaccinated against meningitis.
