Instead of celebrating their daughters third birthday today, a grieving family has launched a campaign to help raise awareness for Meningococcal B following their toddlers death.
Today little Skylar should be celebrating her third birthday with her twin sister.
Today, she should be unwrapping presents and giggling and eating birthday cake.
But today, her family will be missing her more than ever.
Skylar died very recently from Meningococcal B.
Her family had carefully followed the National Immunisation Program, but were not told about the OTHER vaccines – the expensive meningococcal vaccines that help protect against the most common strains of the disease.
Today, Skylar’s twin sister will be wondering why she now celebrates birthdays without Skylar.
Today, Skylar’s parents will be nursing their heartbreak while attempting to smile and make the day special for Skylar’s twin. And despite their intense grief, today Skylar’s family are doing something incredible.
Desperate to raise awareness about Meningococcal B, Skylar’s family are today launching the #ShareACinoWithSkylar campaign.
You can show them your support by heading to any of the below cafes to share a free babycino with your kids (a great school-holidays outing!)
More importantly than the free babycino, you will also be able to grab a brochure about Meningococcal B. This information could save a life!
Don’t forget to take a pic and use the #ShareACinoWithSkylar hashtag!
