The Melissa Duarte Foundation is a non-profit charity, founded September 1996. The primary goal of the foundation is to increase awareness of meningococcal disease.
Our mission is to educate families, individuals and others about bacterial meningitis and prevention approaches to the disease.
In particular, we want to raise awareness and protection among parents and young adults, many of whom can be protected through education and vaccination efforts.
If you visit Missy’s site, and have experience “our loss”, we offer our deepest sympathy. We are here to talk to you, write to you and cry with you.
Please, please, please, read, through this web-site educate yourselves. Bacterial Meningitis is a silent killer.
What we do.........
Educate, educate, educate........ all of you
