Meningitis B

The most common and most deadly strain of meningitis.*

When a person is infected with meningitis B, it is a race against time to begin treatment and start antibiotics. The infection can spread quickly through the bloodstream and attack the brain. 1 in 10 cases can be fatal, often within 24 to 48 hours after the onset of symptoms.

There is a severe lack of information and transparency regarding meningitis B. The vaccine was not available until 2014, and the vast majority of those at risk have not been immunized against this lethal disease.

* Meningitis B is a meningococcal disease caused by Neisseria meningitidis. Serogroup B is responsible for the majority of invasive meningococcal disease cases in Canada.

On October 9th, Alex Ryan ran 30 kilometres in support of the BforKai Foundation to raise money to help educate people about meningitis B.

If it only takes one person to make a difference, let Kai’s death be the reason for change.

 
Kai was a 19-year-old Kinesiology student who had just finished his first year at Acadia University. He saw and experienced the natural joys of life during his 19 years. He found true love, travelled the world, showcased his natural athletic abilities for all sports, and pursued an education focused on his passions. His calm and gentle demeanour, as well as his charisma and charm, drew everyone towards him. Kai left an ever-lasting mark on everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.
