Diagnosed with meningitis in 2006, Daisi has spent the past 7 years  overcoming the physical, emotional and mental hurdles of having meningitis.  Daisi wants to give hope to people like her whos lives have been interrupted and shattered by the disease to rebuild their legacy. “When I was sick I really thought that was the end for me but I made it through.  I want to give those who have not been as fortunate as me hope, inspiration and a legacy. Daisi joins the efforts of the National Meningitis Association to bring an end to meningococcal disease by acting as an advocate for those that have been severely affect by meningitis and promoting immunization awareness.  

Meningococcal Meningitis is a form of meningococcal disease, a serious and potentially fatal bacterial infection of the tissue surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Adolescents and young adults are at increased risk of contracting meningococcal disease. Meningococcal disease can be difficult to diagnose in its early stages because meningitis symptoms can be misdiagnosed as viral illnesses such as flu symptoms.  Many who survive meningococcal meningitis are left with serious medical problems including amputation of limbs, severe scarring, brain damage, and psychological problems.


National Meningitis Association
The National Meningitis Association, Inc. (NMA) is a national non-profit charity founded in July, 2002. The primary goal of NMA is to educate and increase awareness of meningococcal disease. The founding members were personally affected by the tragedy of meningococcal disease. NMA’s mission is to educate families, medical professionals and others about bacterial meningitis and prevention approaches to the disease. NMA is focused on raising awareness and protection among adolescents and young adults, many of whom can be protected through education and vaccination efforts.
