SWNS_MENINGITIS_PETITION_03

The petition being backed by the parents of Faye Burdett. See SWNS story SWFAYE; Distraught parents have released a heart-breaking image of their two-year-old daughter hours before she died of meningitis as they lobby the Government for a vaccine. Young Faye Burdett was photographed with a painful rash covering her entire body as she sadly lost her 11-day battle with the infection on Valentine’s Day. But mum Jenny and dad Neil Burdett, who are experiencing “a pain you cannot describe” at the loss of their only child, have vowed to help protect other youngsters from the illness. They have channelled their energy into calling for a change in policy after their daughter’s shock death and are asking as many people as possible to sign a government petition to give the Meningitis B vaccine to all children – not just babies.
