Evergrace Davis knows that her son Terrence is lucky. He is a meningitis survivor. He beat a disease that kills one in every seven afflicted.
At just 20 months old, Terrence awoke with a cough and fever. Like most moms, Evergrace thought he was coming down with the flu. But when her son’s symptoms didn’t improve, Evergrace took Terrance to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with meningococcal meningitis. He remained in the hospital recovering for two weeks.
