“When she was 17 months old Tilly caught Meningococcal Septicaemia. This is a deadly form of meningitis which there is still no vaccination for. It happened so quickly that in just minutes she was covered from head to toe in small, reddish bruise-like marks. Tilly was rushed to hospital in an ambulance at top speed, but the marks were getting larger and larger by the second. Tilly was critically ill and it was expected at that time that she would die.”
