Help Aaron fight his catastrophic illness.

While away at college in November 2013, Aaron became ill with an extremely aggressive strain of Neisseria (bacterial) meningitis for which there is not a U.S. approved vaccine. While meningococcal disease is often fatal, doctors were able to save Aaron’s life but unfortunately had to amputate both his lower legs after the meningitis led to sepsis (blood infection) and disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) which caused these severe complications. Antibiotics have since eradicated the meningitis, however Aaron now faces a long and challenging road to recovery.

Aaron, I am a neighbor of yours, and both of my daughters went to LCCHS as well. My youngest, Elise, had two brain surgeries, so I have some idea of what you are going through. My prayers are with you and though I don't know you personally, what I've read about you tells me that you are strong and a survivor. God bless you!
